The best attributes can be found in your Maine Biologic Dentist
As people are becoming more aware of the connection between oral health and the health of the body, we are seeing an increased interest in biologic dentistry. Men and women who want the absolute best information regarding their oral health and how to maintain healthy teeth and gums with conservative methods appreciate the knowledge and candor of a biologic dentist.
At the Maine Center for Dental Medicine, Drs. Imam and Khan work with patients rather than on them. Our team provides care from a biologic dentistry perspective, which includes a number of unique aspects:
- Treatment of amalgam. Many general dental practices offer alternatives to amalgam today due to the growing concern over this antiquated restorative material. Though this is healthier, there is also the matter of existing amalgams. In our biologic dentistry office, patients may elect to have mercury fillings removed using a meticulous protocol that minimizes the risk of exposure.
- Conservative care. One of the priorities of your biologic dentist is the preservation of natural structure. When damage has occurred, a mercury-free filling will be considered. In cases when extensive repair is necessary, an inlay or onlay often achieves the greatest amount of stability for lasting structural support. Biocompatibility of materials is also a vital aspect of care.
- Full-spectrum care for oral health and general wellness. Nutrition plays a significant role in oral environment as well as in the body. However, there are few dentists that discuss lifestyle habits with patients. Our staff insists on the best for our patients, and discusses how nutrition can be used as an adjunct to preventive and restorative dental care. The mouth is affected by everything that goes into it. Making healthy choices decreases the risk of disease not only in the mouth but throughout the body.
A great deal of wisdom exists in biologic dental care. The Maine Center for Dental Medicine is a resource for patients in the Skowhegan area.
