Alexandria holistic dentist
What does holistic dentistry mean? It refers to making choices about your dental well-being in relation to your overall health, and always asking if the treatment method being used is promoting it. At Dental Excellence, we are committed to mercury-free filings, as well as in the safe removal of your existing fillings that have mercury. These are just two examples of how our Alexandria holistic dentist
is set apart from other dentists. Our office also uses safe and biocompatible dental materials whenever possible.
The tentpoles of the holistic dental approach is that nothing that occurs to your body happens in a vacuum. What goes on in your mouth affects other parts of your body. There is probably no greater example of this than your gums. The bacteria that builds up when periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease, sets in can travel outside of your mouth and lead to disease elsewhere in your body. Our Alexandria holistic dentist will take prompt and appropriate action to restore your gums to their proper, vibrant state, but also to keep you from suffering with ill health as the result of gum disease. You have probably heard about the dangers of mercury. And amalgam fillings, those made of metal, contain mercury. It's a toxic substance and the less of it you have in you, the better the odds that you will experience optimum wellness. Our Alexandria holistic dentist
removes old mercury fillings safely, using the proper shields to keep mercury dust from going down your throat. Accidental ingestion of mercury in the process of having fillings taken out is a very real concern. Here, you won't have to worry about it.
