“Bio” refers to living organisms. So, “biocompatible” dentistry exists in harmony with living tissues. As holistic practitioners and specialists with advanced training in rebuilding and preserving teeth, we at Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry only use biocompatible materials, techniques, and technologies that optimally support and enhance life.
Some conventional dental treatments introduce ingredients or materials that present challenges to patients’ smile aesthetics and oral and systemic health. Notably, our specialists, prosthodontist Dr. Frank Vidjak and endodontist Dr. Fanny Yacaman, refrain from the use of dental amalgams. This combination of metals has been used for centuries in silver-colored fillings. The problem is, amalgam contains mercury, which is a known toxin. Instead, we place mercury-free materials, such as safe dental ceramics that look like natural teeth. We are also equipped to safely remove and replace silver fillings that are formulated with mercury.
The use of non-toxic materials like porcelain is just one facet of authentically biocompatible and holistic dental care. We’ve listed a few of the ways our team supports the health of your smile and your “whole body” health:
Dental practices that embody truly holistic or biocompatible principles appreciate that patients are “more than their mouths!” The health of your teeth, gums, and interconnected structures and tissues considerably influences your well-being and other organs and systems throughout the body. Oral problems like advanced periodontal disease are associated with many systemic conditions, from poor diabetes management to increased risk of cardiovascular events. By resolving decay, oral infections, or gum disease and restoring your oral health, we can help get your blood sugar in check and reduce your risk of developing heart problems.
