Holistic Dentists: “Green” Year-Round, Not Just For Earth Day
As holistic dentists, we know that mercury-free is the only way to fill cavities. Mercury-free and mercury-safe dentists are also green. A study by the Canadian Dental Association found 60 percent of mercury residue from silver amalgam fillings is released into wastewater in Ontario. Imagine the multiplier effect this has on an entire country and planet.
When we follow best practices like those established by the IAOMT, it’s healthier to our patients and is also friendly to the environment. We encourage dental approaches that reduce the profession’s environmental impact. We’re happy to contribute to the health of our patients and to leave a legacy of a better planet for future generations. Keep in mind:
  • You’ll never find mercury in our fillings. The toxin is used to bind metals in amalgams. Alternatives such as ceramics are friendly to living tissues and look like natural, healthy teeth.
  • We safely remove amalgam fillings placed by other dentists. Using equipment such as an amalgam separator, which filters the particles from the office’s wastewater.
We’re happy to acquaint you with the ways we offer safer, healthier dentistry.
 
 
Dental Check-Ups For More Than A Beautiful Smile
Dental specialists are the ideal health partners to detect a type of head and neck cancer whose incidence has exploded in the past 15 years: HPV. Yes, it’s the same high-risk HPV that causes cervical cancer. The HPV virus is seemingly everywhere, so many are exposed. This type of cancer is often found on the tongue and oropharynx, the middle part of your throat behind the mouth. It includes the back third of your tongue, the sides and back walls of your throat, and tonsils. This type of cancer is distinguished from “traditional” oral cancers, partly, due to:
  • It’s affecting younger men
  • It’s affecting those who are not smokers or longtime, habitual drinkers
  • The high incidence among people with persistent HPV, who unlike most have a hard time clearing the virus
The growing rates of these cancers underscore the importance of dental visits, at least every six months. As dentists, we’re at the front lines of not only your teeth and gum health, but also your overall wellness. Our professionals will look for abnormalities, such as ulcers or growths on the sides and base of the tongue or tonsils. If you haven’t scheduled your next checkup, call us
