Why Biological Dentistry?

Biological Dentistry is not another specialty (like Cosmetic Dentistry) but rather a philosophy that can apply to all the subcategories of dental and to health care in general. It means to always seek the safest, least toxic and invasive way to accomplish the treatment, while treading as lightly as possible on the patient’s Biological terrain. Biological Dentistry also implies a more biocompatible approach to oral health.

There are now so many new ways to make dentistry work better, using modern technologies and biocompatible materials! It's our duty to advocate for the overall well-being of our Patients so we make biocompatibility a high priority in our office.
Everyone accepts that mercury is toxic, handling and disposal are strictly regulated. But if you have mercury in your mouth that is somehow OK apparently. We believe that your fillings should be made out of safe, biocompatible materials and we safely remove and dispose your old amalgam/mercury fillings.

In addition to using less toxic dental materials, we recognize the fact that Patients vary in their biochemical and immunological responses. The more a person suffers from allergies, environmental sensitivity, or autoimmune diseases, the more important Biological Dentistry becomes.
Public health science has failed over the years to verify a protective effect of water fluoridation on children’s teeth. Besides, more and more of the water we drink comes from bottles, it's filtered by our fridge or is coconut water, so dumping fluoride (a toxic byproduct actually, not naturally occurring) in all the water seems useless. Meanwhile, evidence of harmful effects of fluoride accumulation in our bodies continues to mount. There are safer products out there now that that have beneficial effects, we prefer those to fluoride.

In the old days, when the only restorative materials were amalgam or gold, and the only esthetic material were denture teeth, our profession had a hard time. Today, we can do better dentistry, in a less toxic, more individualized, more environmentally friendly way than ever. We have as many choices of attitude before us as we do techniques and materials. When you choose a Biological Dentist you know you are getting the safest experience for your overall health! Call us at 949-425-1447 for more info or visit us at http://www.AlisoViejoDental.com/
