What is Biological Dentistry?
Biological dentists respect that the mouth is an integral part of the entire body. Dental treatments should impact the rest of the body as little as possible. However, traditional and commonly performed dental procedures may leave people with chronic problems or other health consequences.
Biological dentists use biocompatible materials that will not adversely affect a patient's immune system. The emphasis is on building health and well being. If there is disease we will look for the underlying cause that may have its origin in the mouth.

Mercury Free Dentists and Biological Dentistry
Biological, mercury free dentists promote treatments that are safe and effective, with minimal or no side-effects. Dental materials are non-toxic and bio-compatible.
The body's innate capacity to heal itself (self correct) is utilized by providing appropriate immune system support and neurological support, proper nutrition, and if necessary, by reducing an infectious load.
