Biologic Dentistry is the evaluation and treatment of a patient’s dental issues keeping in mind the individual nature of their health and immune system. The immune system is our body’s sentinel protecting us internally by removing sick and cancerous cells and externally from the invasion of bacteria, mold and viruses. Over time toxins can build up in our system due to factors such as aging, exposure to environmental pollutants, chronic chemical exposures and long term use of certain medications. Toxicity gradually reduces the effectiveness our organs. Toxicity can also cause the immune system to become less effective, or over reactive resulting in environmental sensitivities, allergies, auto–immune and other diseases.
Controversy exists over the health risks and environmental impact of mercury, metals, and plastic like compounds found in some dental materials. In 1990 I made the decision to eliminate the use of all toxic metals from my dental practice and learn how to reduce the risks of treatment for patients who suffer from disease and environmental sensitivities. If you are concerned about mercury as a health issue, or are very sensitive to your environment, we can discuss different strategies for evaluating its true impact on your health. By partnering with doctors, acupuncturists and nutritionists who are experts at helping patients with these problems, we can be part of a coordinated plan to improve your dental as well as overall health.
