Skowhegan biologic dentist provides gentle, advanced treatment

biologic dentist provides gentle, advanced treatment

People seek the care of a biologic dentist at Maine Center for Dental Medicine. The team transforms dentistry with their holistic and advanced approaches to restorative treatment. Alternatives to conventional procedures are changing many patient perceptions about dentistry. Our Skowhegan office offers a comfortable environment and provides services for lifelong oral and whole-body health.

Transformative tools

Dentists have used amalgam to fill cavities for more than two centuries. This mix of metals contains copper, tin, and silver, as well as around 50 percent mercury. Many dentists have opted instead for beautiful, durable, and safe alternatives. Even some dentists who market themselves as “holistic,” however, don’t safely remove and dispose of amalgam fillings. Drs. Imam and Khan adhere to standards set by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. IAOMT protocol ensures the safety of the patient, dental team, and environment by minimizing exposure to mercury vapors released during the removal process.

Unlike many other holistic dental practices, the doctors at the Maine Center for Dental Medicine use non-metal materials such as zirconia dental implants. Zirconia ceramic is a gentle, low-risk alternative to titanium implants, especially for patients with a history of allergies.

Transformative techniques

Holistic dentists generally agree that minimal alteration of the natural structure is better. When a portion of the tooth needs repair, the doctors will recommend the treatment that preserves the most natural tooth structure. Alternatives to full-coverage crowns such as dental inlays and onlays preserve natural appearance, feel, and function of the restored tooth. By using technologies such as lasers and ozone therapy, many common procedures cause little to no discomfort, side effects, or risk of complications. Advanced techniques promote wound healing and immune response.

I have been going to see Drs. Khan and Imman for several years now. I am thoroughly impressed with their advanced education and attention to the patient's pain. They always explain, in advance of doing any work, the intricacies, pros and cons of different approaches. I have total faith in both of their professional abilities and also have recommended them to everyone I know who is looking for dentists. They are both immensely kind people, tremendous dentists and all their support staff is exceptionally pleasant and helpful.

I have been with this practice for a number of years now and I appreciate their approach to dental medicine. Dr. Kahn explains any recommendations thoroughly so I can make clear decisions about my dental health. Mary Lynne is an award winning hygienist and the best in the business. I look forward to my visits with her! Overall, everyone that I come into contact there is professional and friendly and you are always greeted with a smile! Thank you!

The team at this dental office is superb. My amalgams were removed with great ease and all precautions for mercury removal were taken. They are such a caring bunch of professionals. I will definitely continue taking the 5 hour drive to this office and continue being a patient at this dental office.
