What is Biological Dentistry ?

biological dentistry Jun 14, 2021

Biological dentistry, also known as holistic or biocompatible dentistry, is a type of dental practice that considers the impact of oral health on the overall health and well-being of a person. It seeks to use natural, non-toxic materials and techniques to promote dental health while minimizing the use of harmful chemicals and procedures.

Biological dentistry emphasizes the connection between the mouth and the rest of the body, recognizing that dental health can have a significant impact on other aspects of health. This approach takes into consideration the biocompatibility of materials used in dental treatments, as well as the impact of dental procedures on the immune system, the body's energy pathways, and the nervous system.

Practitioners of biological dentistry may use a variety of techniques, including mercury-free fillings, ozone therapy, and minimally invasive approaches to dental procedures. They may also recommend dietary and lifestyle changes to promote overall health and improve oral health.

Here is how we practice biological dentistry at Dallas Designer Smiles:

  • We preserve as much of your tooth as possible (sounds like it should common place, but its not)
  • We don't cut crowns on teeth that don't already have an existing one (crowned teeth can have a high percentage of needing a root canal down the road)
  • We do everything we can to avoid, prevent, and even reverse potential root canal treatments (this all depends on when we can intervene and do the treatment and the current symptoms)
  • We use the materials that preform the best with clinical studies AND your body (material testing has repeatedly shown our materials safe)
  • We don't use metal in our 'fillings' or crowns
  • We can remove amalgam safely 
  • We don't use fluoride in our cleanings
  • We limit unnecessary treatment and delay treatment for as long as possible ( this helps to prolong the life of the tooth by limiting the amount of retreatments and bigger more costlier work)
  • We limit radiation from our X-rays by using the iTero scanner to get an oral health screening whenever possible
