Doctor D. does a great job on my treatment. He has been very attentive to my sensitive teeth issues.I can t say enough about he care he has provided to myself and my family.
BPA-safe composites the natural appearance of a composite dental filling is very advantageous Many people like the idea of tooth-colored fillings that can be "hidden" in the smile. While metal-free restorations are indeed more attractive, there are also health advantages that come from the selection of BPA free fillings.
Research has demonstrated that an amalgam filling is approximately 50 percent mercury in content. Additional research has shown that mercury vapor is released into the mouth when fillings are heated through the friction of chewing. Composite resin fillings have provided an alternative solution to tooth damage. There are, however, concerns that Bisphenol A, or BPA, in the plastic composition of resin fillings could pose a risk to health and wellness. BPA may be released from fillings through contact with saliva and oral enzymes.
We are a health-conscious natural dental practice. As such, our team believes is using only the safest mercury-free materials in the restoration of teeth. At Sacramento Natural Health, only BPA-safe materials are used in the care of your smile.

The advantage of BPA-safe composites

While the natural appearance of a composite dental filling is very advantageous, your biological dentist primarily uses this material for its safety and efficacy. In addition to being a healthier option than mercury amalgam fillings, the composite restoration is also kinder to tooth structure. Because amalgam fillings contain metal, they expand and contract more than natural enamel. This movement of the filling material gradually causes fractures in the weakened tooth wall, allowing microbes to get beneath the filling where they can cause infection. Our BPA-safe composite restorations are similar to enamel in the way they respond to temperature change. The repair process is also different, with bonding achieving tighter margins through which bacteria cannot gain access to hidden areas.
The benefits of BPA-safe, mercury-free fillings include:
  • More conservative process due to the minimal reduction of natural tooth structure
  • Restoration of strength through a precise bonding process
  • Stable material does not release toxic substances into the mouth
  • Resistant to corrosion and fractures
  • More attractive and natural looking
  • Composite cures (hardens) more quickly than amalgam
  • Less chance of tooth sensitivity

I love this office! Dr. Azouz is the best dentist my family has ever had. I have had nothing but positive experiences every time I have had anything done in this office. I have referred several friends and family and all have been so happy with Dr. Azouz. My kids now love going to the dentist and I appreciate how good Dr. Azouz and the staff are with them. This is an office you will not be disappointed in, and is great for all ages!
