Why Gilbert area residents should choose mercury free dentistry
When it comes to the health and wellbeing of the body, many problems may stem from the mouth. The mouth has an oral systemic connection to the rest of the body and can negatively affect one’s health. Dr. Edward Fritz of New Health Dental believes in providing patients with biocompatible dentistry and regular care of the smile to ensure patients enjoy the advantages of a healthy smile and body.
One of the steps to accomplish this is to visit a practice that offers mercury free dentistry. Mercury free dentistry ensures that there is no risk of mercury toxicity. Many dentists still use silver amalgam fillings, but this can be extremely risky. Silver amalgam fillings can expose patients to mercury toxicity, and they can contract with temperature changes resulting in the chance for bacteria to enter into a tooth, are unattractive, and can cause discoloration of the natural tooth enamel surrounding the fillings. Mercury is not a biocompatible material and it should not be used in the body. For this reason, holistic dentistry has become extremely important to many patients who want to ensure the health and wellness of their entire body while in the dentist’s chair.
Gilbert area residents can visit the practice of New Health Dental to discuss the reasons mercury free dentistry is so important. By avoiding silver amalgam fillings, patients can:
- Reduce their risk of mercury toxicity
- Avoid bacteria entering teeth that have had fillings placed
- Use composite resin which looks much more aesthetic
- Avoid fillings that can expand and contract due to temperature changes
- Look their absolute best while maintaining a healthier smile overall
