Skowhegan dental center focus on oral protection not oral procedures
Thousands of people suffer from anxiety about the dentist. Thousands more worry about what is going into their bodies. Maine Center for Dental Medicine, in Skowhegan, understands this. Dr. Mohammed Imam and Dr. Shafiulla Khan have decades of experience practicing dentistry. This has led them to focus on holistic mercury free dentistry with a commitment towards educating patients on oral protection to minimize the need for dental work.
Why we choose to be mercury-free:
For over 100 years, mercury has been used in tooth fillings. Mercury is a neurotoxin and has been eliminated from most products. The two major sources of mercury left that we are exposed to are from coal power plants and dental fillings. Through the course of our years practicing dentistry, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping up-to-date on all information and investigating new procedures. We believe that amalgam fillings can give off mercury vapor. The vapor is inhaled and absorbed into your body. This can cause health risks and damage body tissues. There are other materials that are biocompatible and pose no health risk that can be used safely and effectively. Porcelain and composite resins being two of the top ones. We use the world’s first BPA-free restorative/filling material, Admira Fusion.
Some of the services we offer:
- General dentistry services, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants using metal free materials
- Ozone therapy: This can help shorten recovery time from dental procedures.
- Teeth whitening
- Orthodontic care
- Nutritional counseling: Eating the right foods can go a long way towards preventing dental problems before they begin!
- We provide services for the entire family.
- Laser dentistry: Minimally invasive treatment
We strongly believe in practicing dentistry that considers whole body health. Call us for a consultation to see how holistic dentistry can help your oral and overall health. (207) 474-9503.
