At Smiles Dental, we care about the health of each patient. We also care about our environmental impact as a practice. This is why we offer holistic solutions to care for our patients and the environment. More people are becoming interested in mercury-free dentistry because the long-term effects of mercury amalgam may be damaging to health and the environment.
It is for this reason that we offer biological dentistry to our patients. We are proud to offer this service to you and we’d like to tell you a bit more about why biological dentistry may be right for you.
What Is Biological Dentistry?
Biological dentistry is a safe alternative to the use of dental amalgam. We prioritize biocompatibility of materials used for each patient’s specific needs. Our biological dentist team is trained to remove potentially harmful materials in a safe way. We do this with our SMART technology, which allows us to safely remove dental amalgam from patients’ existing dental fixtures.
What Is SMART Technology?
SMART technology stands for “Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique” wherein our highly trained biological dentists will remove mercury amalgam from fillings and other dental materials in your mouth. For those who are concerned about the potential health risks associated with dental amalgam, this technique will be the first step in restoration. From there, we’ll place natural and compatible materials to update your dental work.
Why Try Biological Dentistry?
Biological dentistry is beneficial for a number of reasons. It’s non-toxic, safe, and environmentally friendly. The alternatives for dental amalgam are longer lasting and look more natural. If you are looking for holistic long-term solutions to your dental care, biological dentistry may be for you.
