Experienced dentists in Skowhegan believe a biologic philosophy and biologic oral care serves patients’ needs best

holistic philosophy and holistic oral care serves patients’ needs best

If you have had dental problems in the past, gone to a dentist and experienced health issues afterwards, it could be because the dentist was only considering your mouth, not the entire body. Maine Center for Dental Medicine, in Skowhegan, believes that a biologic philosophy and the biologic oral care that come from that philosophy consider the entire body, leading to overall better health. We will help guide you towards the healthiest you can be, while giving you a beautiful smile.

 

Definition of biologic dentistry:

 

Biologic dentistry is dental health care that uses a whole-body approach to treat the teeth, jaw, and related structures. We can address a wide range of dental issues, including issues stemming from toxicity related to dental restoration materials. We are strong believers in helping you choose the right foods to create good oral health and whole body health.

 

Our main biologic dentistry focus areas:

  • Fluoride free dentistry: Since 1997 the Food and Drug Administration has mandated that all toothpaste with fluoride include a warning stating to keep out of the reach of children and that if too much is ingested to call the Poison Control Center immediately. We believe that if a material is strong enough that the Poison Control Center should be contacted, we don’t want to use it on our patients’ teeth.
  • Nutritional counseling: Nutrition is a vital part of our biologic dentistry approach. Your diet promotes or prohibits good oral and systemic health. We will help you choose the right foods to help attain and maintain a healthy mouth.
  • Mercury free dentistry: Mercury is a neurotoxin. We can help replace all metal in your mouth with BPA free materials and do any future dental work without the use of mercury or metals.
