Boston Holistic Dentist
Today, we know more than ever about how our overall physical health can be affected by substances placed in our bodies. It should be no different when it comes to dental care and that is why we take a holistic approach to dentistry by offering options that consider your total well-being.
Holistic Dentist Concerns
When it comes to the materials used for filling cavities, it is likely you have had a silver amalgam filling placed in your mouth. And did you know that amalgam fillings contain mercury? Although the American Dental Association considers amalgam to be perfectly safe, some people are still concerned.
Every filling Dr. Bader places is mercury-free. He uses white composite fillings that give his patients peace of mind, and bond directly to the tooth. This forms a tighter seal, causes less post-operative sensitivity, and offers a much more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Sanitary Amalgam Removal Services
Some patients are concerned about amalgam fillings they have in their mouth from previous dental procedures. So if you want to have old amalgam fillings removed, we offer sanitary amalgam removal services. In line with our holistic dentist approach, there are several precautions that we undergo to ensure that you are never exposed to any harmful substances. We utilize a rubber dam, Isolite, and can get an alternate breathing source to ensure that you will breathe pure oxygen throughout the duration of the procedure.
If you have any concerns or questions about our holistic approach to dentistry, please contact us at (617) 795-7170.
