Dentistry from a Whole Body Perspective
Our mouths and our bodies are not separate entities. On the contrary, they are very connected. An inspection of an individual’s teeth and gums can tell us a lot about his/her overall physical health. Some factors known to affect the condition of the oral cavity include health issues, medications, changes in eating habits, stress/lack of sleep, and vitamin deficiencies. We believe that disease is preventable, that it is always better to prevent a problem rather than to treat one, and that the health of the mouth can affect the overall health of the body.
In recent years, there has been concern regarding Bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical ingredient found in certain compounds. BPA and its forms are also found in composite filling materials and sealants. While it is important to note that the American Dental Association has not determined a health hazard present in sealants and composites, we have made a decision to offer BPA-free composite filling materials as an option if you so choose. In addition, we do fabricate metal-free and full gold crowns and restorations as well.
What it Means to be Green in Dentistry
We only have one body and one earth to live on. With this in mind, we are very conscious of minimizing our carbon footprint. As a dental office, it is very hard to be completely green, but with the right resources and advancements in technology, we have been able to practice dentistry in ways that reduce the impact on our health and natural environment. Our mission to be green includes:
- Efficient use of energy and water
- Reducing paper and plastic waste
- Paper-free, digital charts, x-rays, and forms
- Amalgam separators when removing silver amalgam fillings
- use of all natural, eco-friendly products whenever possible
