Biological dentistry is a field in which a health-conscious, whole-body approach is taken. Many patients are choosing biological dentists for themselves and their families as they strive for overall health and wellness. At Sacramento Natural Dentistry, we are happy to show patients safe, holistic ways to manage their oral health.
In the biological dental office, we look at the big picture as it relates to oral health. We know that a beautiful, healthy smile is a powerful thing. Conversely, we know that poor oral health can be an enormous detriment to the body. Infection, bacteria, and other toxins in the mouth – even those contained in dental materials – can get in the way of optimal wellness. Because we see just how tight the connection is between the mouth and the body, we find every aspect of dental care incredibly important.
At Sacramento Natural Dentistry, we want to help each of our patients enjoy better oral health and good general health by treating their smiles with safe, biocompatible techniques and materials. The integrative approach we take to patient care is done so the whole body can benefit.
Biological dentistry involves more than the routine care many are accustomed to. We do more than look at problem teeth and repair them. Instead, our team gets to know individual patients, their dental concerns, the goals they have for their smile, and the problems that they may be prone to. We look at teeth and gums, but we also consider lifestyle habits, health conditions, medications, and more.
Biological dentistry is often recognized for the avoidance of amalgam fillings. While this may be the cornerstone of this field, the general philosophy is that patients should not be harmed by what goes into their mouth. Mercury is not the only substance that can pose a threat to long term health. Various types of metal have been shown to have a detrimental impact, especially when they interact in the acidic oral environment. Additionally, the way dental problems are handled can either promote optimal health or place it at risk.
We consider the various factors involved in health and wellness as we work with each patient. If you would like to experience a different approach to your dental needs, schedule your visit to our Sacramento biological dental office.
What our patients say about Biological Dentistry Treatment
“Dr. Azouz safely removed my old mercury fillings and replaced them with porcelain. I liked his entire office staff and appreciated the attention to safety relative to my mercury fillings. I have had health issues for several years and often worried that my mercury fillings had something to do with my frequent headaches, fatigue, & autoimmune disorder. The procedure, while long, went well and I have felt great every day following. Time will tell if removing the mercury fillings improves my health but, for now, I can just say that I was very pleased with the removal process.“ Anita G.
