What is holistic dentistry?
A holistic dentist focuses on the advantages of a safe and effective ways to address problems within the smile. This means eliminating materials and techniques that may have a negative impact. Silver amalgam fillings are metal fillings commonly used to address cavities. However, studies continue to show, time and time again, that the mercury used to create these fillings is harmful to the human body. Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause avoid the use of silver amalgam fillings and instead use composite resin as an alternative. Composite fillings do not expand and contract as metal fillings do, eliminating the risk of bacteria getting into the tooth’s inner structure. Additionally, they blend in with the natural smile and do not expose patients to mercury.
Not only do we avoid the placement of silver amalgam fillings, we remove them via the standards set forth by the IAOMT to ensure safety for everyone involved, with the use of a mercury barrier protection over the guest to insure patient and staff are protected. We replace these fillings with composite resin fillings as an alternative that may improve one’s overall health.
Our practice also uses ozone therapy to speed up the healing process when dental procedures are performed. This is only offered by holistic dentists and can provide a safe and effective way of addressing conditions that may require extensive healing time if done in a traditional manner.
