Benefits of a Biological Dental Care Center in the Skowhegan, Maine area

Biological Dental Care in Maine area

If you live in the area of Skowhegan, Maine and are interested in Biological dental care, Dr. Mohammed Imam and Dr. Shafiulla Khan at Maine Center for Dental Medicine welcome you to the practice to learn about the options available for mercury safe and biological dentistry.

What is Biological/holistic dental care?

Biological dental care is an aspect of dentistry that focuses on using appropriate and safe materials for the teeth as well as providing non-invasive ways of treating common conditions. This includes avoiding the use of mercury amalgam fillings, which have been used in the past for filling cavities. Silver amalgam fillings contain approximately 50% mercury, which is a neurotoxin. When placed in the teeth as a filling, these materials expose patients to the risk of mercury exposure and toxicity. Our dentists do not use amalgam, and we remove amalgam using the SMART protocol. Dr. Imam and Dr. Khan are certified dentists with the IAOMT for the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique.

Benefits of Biological/holistic dental care

There are many benefits to Biological dental care. A Biological/holistic practice uses materials that are safe and appropriate for the mouth.  A Biological practice will provide effective periodontal treatment for patients who have developed gum disease. Periodontal disease has a negative impact on mouth and body.. The earlier the condition is caught, the easier it is to treat. Periodontal disease left untreated can increase the risk for a variety of health conditions, including stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. This is due to the oral systemic connection. The unhealthy bacteria in the mouth can carry through the bloodstream and can affect other organs in the body. Because of this, it is important that patients get care for their conditions as soon as possible at a Biological/holistic dental facility.

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.

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.
