If you live in the area of Skowhegan, Maine and are interested in Biological dental care, Dr. Mohammed Imam and Dr. Shafiulla Khan at Maine Center for Dental Medicine welcome you to the practice to learn about the options available for mercury safe and biological dentistry.
Biological dental care is an aspect of dentistry that focuses on using appropriate and safe materials for the teeth as well as providing non-invasive ways of treating common conditions. This includes avoiding the use of mercury amalgam fillings, which have been used in the past for filling cavities. Silver amalgam fillings contain approximately 50% mercury, which is a neurotoxin. When placed in the teeth as a filling, these materials expose patients to the risk of mercury exposure and toxicity. Our dentists do not use amalgam, and we remove amalgam using the SMART protocol. Dr. Imam and Dr. Khan are certified dentists with the IAOMT for the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique.
There are many benefits to Biological dental care. A Biological practice uses materials that are safe and appropriate for the mouth. A Biological practice will provide effective periodontal treatment for patients who have developed gum disease. Periodontal disease has a negative impact on mouth and body.. The earlier the condition is caught, the easier it is to treat. Periodontal disease left untreated can increase the risk for a variety of health conditions, including stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. This is due to the oral systemic connection. The unhealthy bacteria in the mouth can carry through the bloodstream and can affect other organs in the body. Because of this, it is important that patients get care for their conditions as soon as possible at a Biological dental facility.
A dental center that provides biologic solutions is also focused on the body, not just the smile. This is an important aspect that allows the dentists to ensure that everything they perform is appropriate for one’s specific health needs. When patients are faced with dental problems, they should take care in working with a dental provider who has years of experience in providing solutions for patients that are safe and appropriate. Biological dental care ensures that patients undergo treatments that will protect their overall health, not impact it in a negative way. The goal of biologic dental care is to optimize health.
