Experience safe and effective dental treatment with holistic procedures in West Palm Beach
Many patients in the West Palm Beach area are unaware of the link between the mouth and the rest of the body. This link, called the “oral systemic connection,” has an impact on overall wellness. Procedures performed in the mouth can affect the body. For example, the use of mercury in silver amalgam fillings can carry toxins through the bloodstream and result in an increased risk for medical conditions including dementia, tremors, heart disease, and even depression.
Studies have shown over the years that the more mercury in the mouth, the higher the levels of mercury in the brain. Holistic professionals such as dentists at Pure Dental Care have decided to eliminate the use of silver amalgam fillings for patients to reduce the likelihood of chronic mercury exposure and mercury toxicity. Instead, they utilize restorations such as composite resin fillings which are safer and more aesthetic. They do not expand and contract with temperature changes, which cause silver amalgam fillings to allow bacteria into the inner portion of the tooth. When this happens, it increases the risks of infection.
Reducing the chance of experiencing toxicity and exposure to mercury is one of the primary benefits of dental treatment in a holistic practice. Safe dental procedures are high on our list of priorities. Pure Dental Care, along with their dedicated team of professionals, ensure patients are taking good care of their smile and their body with biocompatible treatments.
In addition to eliminating the use of silver amalgam fillings, this team does not use metal restorations. Instead, repairs are made with materials such as porcelain which are not only more attractive when used in the smile but also safer. Porcelain crowns are just as strong as metal crowns while maintaining the appearance of the smile.
