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 biologic mercury free dentistry with a commitment towards educating patients on oral protection to minimize the need for dental work.
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.
We strongly believe in practicing dentistry that considers whole body health. Call us for a consultation to see how biologic dentistry can help your oral and overall health. (207) 808-7355.
