Biocompatible Dentistry and Its Importance for Overall Wellbeing

Going to the dentist used to be only about checking the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. As time passed, dentists have begun to connect your oral health to your overall well being. Out of this realization has come a new form of dentistry called biological (or holistic) dentistry. Biological dentistry follows the belief that your oral health is intricately connected to your overall health. Individuals in Burr Ridge, Illinois, looking for a biocompatible dental office have been visiting Dr. Janet Stopka and her wonderful team at Safe Dental Smiles (Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC). Dr. Stopka believes that your oral health problems can and do affect the health of your entire body. Her mission is to treat your oral health in a way that is best for your overall well being.

What is a Biological Dentist?

As mentioned above, a biological dentist keeps the health of your entire body in mind while working on your teeth, gums, and mouth. This is accomplished, in part, through the materials used in your treatment. Only biocompatible materials are used in this form of dentistry. This ensures that your body does not have any adverse reactions to anything introduced to it during dental treatment. Biological dentists are trained in the use of ceramic dental implants and can safely remove mercury fillings in a way that is 100% safe for the patient. One big difference that sets biological dentistry apart from traditional dentistry is the approach a biological dentist takes when it comes to treatment. Many traditional dentists apply a one-size-fits-all model to treatment. Biological dentists recognize that every patient they see is different. Because of this, treatment should be catered to each patient’s specific needs.

A Desire to Educate

Another important aspect of biological dentistry is education. When you see a biological dentist, you will spend time devoted to education about how the mouth is tied to one’s overall health. For example, patients can be informed about toxic ingredients in oral care products and how to limit damages to the body caused by some of the toxic materials present in these products. A biological dentist is not just here to treat patients but to approach patients from a holistic perspective. They do not just want to treat the symptoms but the underlying problems. Through conversations between doctor and patient, your dentist will be able to provide personalized care that is perfect just for you.
