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 biologic 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 “biologic,” 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 biologic 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

Biologic 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.
