While you have almost 1,500 dentists to choose from in the metro Phoenix, not all of these professionals have extensive experience in modern approaches designed to maintain the health of not only your teeth and gums, but also your whole body.
As a holistic dentist with more than 30 years of continuing education, Dr. Fritz has built a practice focused on integrating the latest dental materials and technologies while creating a comfortable experience that keeps you and your family coming back for the check-ups and cleanings essential to good oral health.
Also known as biological dentistry, holistic dental practices understand that optimal health and wellness is related to the type of materials, techniques, and care provided by the dentist. For instance, Dr. Fritz uses digital technologies and pain and anxiety reducing medications to restore a badly damaged or decayed tooth with root canal therapy. Contrary to popular belief, root canals are no more extensive than a common filling.
After infected tissue is removed and the tooth is cleaned, a dental crown is typically placed. Made from an aesthetically pleasing, non-toxic ceramic, the crown fits in well with a biological dental practice built around biocompatible products and procedures. These types of restorations do not have the same concerns associated with conventional “silver” fillings made with mercury-containing amalgam or with metal-based crowns.
While it’s estimated that 52 percent of general dentists no longer use amalgam restorations, mercury-free is not the same as mercury-safe. Just because a dentist forgoes amalgam fillings does not mean he or she is equipped to remove existing silver fillings safely.
A great threat to the health of both the patient and dental staff can be posed by traditional filling removal, as the mercury releases vapors during this process. New Health Dental offers advanced expertise in the form of neuropathic physician, Dr. Ty Tallman, so mercury is avoided in all procedures and previous dental work that may have been placed by another dentist is safely removed.
Additionally, the biological dental team emphasizes conservative procedures. Dr. Fritz and his team will always suggest the least invasive, most effective treatment option. For instance, he emphasizes treatments such as non-extraction orthodontics, or inlays or onlays as an alternative to more extensive crowns for decay.
Furthermore, the biological dentist’s approach to general dentistry emphasizes holistic health, including preventative techniques including diligent brushing, flossing, and regular checkups as well as tooth-friendly food and drink. Patients travel from throughout the region to benefit from New Health Dental’s approach. The Dentist and his friendly team want to earn your positive reviews.
