What is Biological Dentistry?
The practice of biological dentistry emphasizes the link between your teeth and your body’s overall health. Did you know that 91% of people with heart disease also have periodontitis? We focus on strong preventive care to help your mouth stay healthy, which ultimately keeps your body healthy!
Poor Dental Health Can Be Linked to:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
What is the Difference Between Biological Dentistry and Basic Dentistry?
Biological dentistry focuses on your total wellness rather than just your oral health. Your mouth is the gateway into the rest of your body, and biological dentistry recognizes this and focuses on:
- Strong preventative care
- Treating with holistic materials
- The connection between oral health and other diseases
Are the Materials Used in Biological Dentistry Safe for Me?
We’ve replaced amalgam fillings with composite resin fillings which are mercury-free and much less risky for your health. Unlike other dentists, we’re committed to the holistic approach and providing you with mercury-free dentistry for the San Antonio area!
What are the Benefits of Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is equally successful as conventional disinfectants used for less complex procedures. This method uses oxygen to both disinfect and to stop an existing infection from spreading. Ozone therapy is particularly helpful with our periodontitis patients, as it can eliminate the need for laser therapy.
What If I Already Have Mercury Fillings?
Did you know that mercury is one of the most toxic substances on the planet, yet it’s commonly used for silver amalgam fillings? Fortunately, South Texas Smiles is a mercury-safe dental office, which means that we can remove your old fillings and replace them with new mercury-free fillings!
