As time passes, the line between traditional and biological dentistry has started to blur. From the time that the Holistic Dental Association was formed in 1978 and set forth guidelines on what makes a dental office biological, more dentists have adopted these guidelines regarding biologic techniques. If you are in the Skowhegan, Maine area and are seeking a dentist that only employs biocompatible techniques and procedures, uses only biocompatible materials, and offers a range of services, then you should consider Drs. Mohammed Imam and Shafiulla Khan and the skilled team at Maine Center for Dental Medicine.
When talking about biological dentistry, it is important to understand that the procedures and techniques themselves determine if a dental practice is biological. A biological dentist believes in educating patients on how their oral health affects the broader health of the body. It is with this mindset that procedures are carried out.
You will be able to get all of the same treatments from a biological dentist as you would from a traditional dentist. In addition, biological dentists can offer you more in the way of whole-body health. Instead of just treating a cavity, a biological dentist will provide you with education and alternatives and see if something such as a change in diet and nutrition can help your oral health.
If you are seeking a biological dentist, you should reach out to the Maine Center for Dental Medicine. Dr. Mohammed Iman would love to welcome you into his office. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Mohammed Imam or Dr. Shafiulla Khan, call (207) 474-9503 today!
