What are the benefits of mercury free dentistry?

Patients who have considered visiting a mercury free dental practice such as Alex Bell Dental are often curious to know what the benefits of biological dentistry include. They may understand what holistic and biocompatible dentistry is, but they may not be sure as to what the advantages of visiting a mercury free dental practice may include.

Best benefits of mercury free dentistry services from Dentist in Centerville

First off, a mercury free dental practice such as Alex Bell Dental focuses on the overall health and wellness of the smile and the body. Instead of just seeing patients as a smile that needs to be improved, we envision our patients as a whole. By providing dental care that benefits both the mouth and the body, we ensure patients maintain better oral care while maintaining their medical health. It has been found that there is an oral systemic connection between the mouth and body, and bacteria and infections found in the smile can carry to the rest of the organs in the body and increase risks for several other medical conditions including diabetes and strokes.

Second, a mercury free dental practice focuses on the beauty of dental treatments performed within the smile. Mercury comprises approximately half of silver amalgam fillings, and when warmed, can release toxic vapors. Our practice avoids traditional silver amalgam fillings when addressing areas of decay and instead uses safer alternatives including composite resin fillings. Many patients love how beautiful these fillings are, as well as how they protect their oral health and wellness.

Mercury free dentists also use biocompatible materials within the smile, which typically eliminates the need for any type of metal restoration. Our practice does provide titanium dental implants, which are a non-corrosive metal, but these are biocompatible and can help patients find a permanent way of repairing their smile after tooth loss. Many patients prefer these dental implants over alternative restorations such as dentures and bridges. Our practice also offers a wide range of porcelain restorations which are not only strong and safe but natural in appearance.
