A BioCompatible dentist approaches oral care with a focus on its connection to overall health. After all, your mouth is part of your body! This type of dentist uses BioCompatible restorative materials that are not toxic to human physiology, and techniques that “first do no harm.” The holistic dentist strives to help patients prevent the causes of disease, or eliminate them to restore wellness, rather than simply addressing symptoms. Holistic dental care promotes the body’s natural capabilities for regeneration and healing.
You might think of BioCompatible as “body friendly.” BioCompatible dental care utilizes the least invasive and traumatic methods of diagnosis and treatment, coupled with materials that do not disrupt the mouth or bodily systems. This includes non-metal and non-toxic options for fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants, and orthodontics.
