Biological Restorative Dentistry
Biological Restorative Dentistry
Biological and holistic dentists don’t just focus on teeth; they are interested in the health and wellness of the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The Holistic Dental Center of New Jersey is a premier local biologic practice offering restorative biological dental treatments.
What makes us different?
A biological dentist and a regular dentist offer a similar range of traditional dentistry services, such as dental exams and cleanings, filling cavities, and providing periodontal treatment. However, unlike traditional dentists who usually treat isolated dental conditions, a holistic or biological dentist seeks out the root causes and treats them rather than just treating the symptoms of the disease. Lifestyle elements like diet, hormones, sleep habits, exercise, and stress are all related to dental health and can impact healing after a dental procedure.
Another notable difference is that biological dentists use only natural biocompatible materials. For example, we avoid using dental tools or treatments containing metals, BPA, fluoride, or toothpaste/mouthwash containing artificial colors or sweeteners.
What is Holistic Dentistry?
The word holistic is defined as “the philosophy that parts are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.” In holistic dentistry, we seek to treat not a single problem but instead address the whole health of our patients. We provide high-quality dental care through the use of:
- Minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment methods
- Natural and biocompatible materials
- Education and maintenance to prevent future disease or damage
Our holistic dental care team is dedicated to providing each patient with the best possible dental care with the whole body in mind.
Our Biological Restorative Dental Services
Biological restorative services focus on enhancing the patient’s overall health and wellness. We offer biological restorative services such as:
S.M.A.R.T Mercury Removal
Amalgam fillings have been used for over 150 years and contain mercury. Mercury is a neurotoxin that can cause health problems such as impaired cognitive function, memory loss, and emotional instability. Our SMART certified doctors at Holistic Dental Center of New Jersey use the latest technology to remove amalgam fillings safely and follow the protocols developed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
Biological Dental Implants
Free of mercury and metals, our biocompatible dental implants are made of zirconia ceramic which is a non-toxic, durable material to restore missing teeth. Zirconia implants are hypoallergenic, non-corrosive, and retain less plaque buildup. Additionally, they have a strong rate of osseointegration into the jawbone, making our biocompatible implants very safe and effective.
We only use biocompatible materials in our restorations, meaning they are harmonious with your biological system. Our fillings are free of metals, mercury, fluoride, BPA, and Bis-GMA. The composite resin material is tooth-colored, looks natural, feels natural, and offers more benefits to your dental health than other filling options.
Fluoride Free Alternatives
Fluoride can be dangerous in high doses, and it is often overused in conventional dentistry. In addition, fluoride is a toxin that can build up in the body over time. Therefore, it is essential to have a holistic dentist who can offer you fluoride-free composite restorations as a safe and healthier alternative.
Ozone therapy is a treatment that uses ozone to kill bacteria, parasites, fungus, and viruses. It is a safe and effective way to treat dental problems, such as gum disease, cavities, and oral infections. Ozone therapy is also a great way to improve your overall dental health.
At the Holistic Dental Center, we offer elective IV therapy to infuse a combination of essential nutrients and antibiotics directly into the bloodstream. The IV delivery method is effective for many procedures, including extractions, dental implants, and mercury amalgam removal. This allows us to bypass the gut’s microbiome preventing dysbiosis. In addition, IV therapy is safe and effective in reducing inflammation, promoting healing, and improving your overall health and wellness.
