Biologic dentist uses advanced research, technology for better health, cosmetic appearance

research, technology for better health, cosmetic appearance

The Maine Center for Dental Medicine uses the latest proven research, materials, and technologies to retain or restore the health of your teeth, gums, and body.

Modern approaches

Many formerly common medical procedures are now considered antiquated or even dangerous. Dental amalgam or silver fillings have been popular since at least the early 19th century. Today, many dental practices won’t place amalgam because it contains mercury. Your biologic dentist in Maine only places materials that don’t contain mercury, such as the first BPA-free filling material: all-ceramic Admira Fusion.

Drs. Imam and Khan follow International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology protocols for the removal of restorations that contain mercury. This is important, because mercury can be released as vapors during the process.

Dental implants made from medical-grade titanium remain popular, but the Maine Center for Dental Medicine offers: metal-free zirconia implants. This ceramic is both gentle to living tissues and unmatched in terms of cosmetic appearance and durability for lasting beauty and strength.

Like amalgam, fluoride has also been widely accepted for decades. Contrary to what you or your parents may have thought, fluoride isn’t essential. In fact, the IAOMT reports that fluoride can interfere with important biological processes, and Drs. Imam and Khan may even need to treat the effects of fluorosis, which can present as stubborn discoloration, pits, and a rough surface. The Maine Center for Dental Medicine uses fluoride alternatives, such as xylitol.

The center provides a number of services not offered by other dentists in and around Skowhegan, including:

  • Ozone therapy
  • Gentle laser dentistry (Waterlase)
  • Precision 3-D imaging technology (Galileos)
  • CEREC “restorations in a day”
  • Natural Myobrace® pre-orthodontic treatment
