Today is Earth Day, so I hope you are spending your day outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather and appreciating the environment!
While today is the perfect excuse to consider how your daily activities impact the environment, there are things you can do throughout the entire year to minimize the harm being done to our planet.
As a dentist in Lake Orion, Michigan, I can help you do this with something called holistic dentistry. Holistic dentistry is the practice of using biocompatible materials and conservative procedures that in the best interest of the patient’s health.
The bottom line: holistic dentistry is good for you and good for the environment.
I use only the best procedures, materials, and technology in my dental office to provide healthy and complete dental care to my patients of all ages. I will customize a treatment plan for you to ensure that all of your dental needs are met.
Some of the holistic materials include:
- A rubber dam
- A clean sweep barrier
- A hi-flow mercury vapor filtration unit
- Pure medical grade oxygen
- Laser for disinfection and desensitization and periodontal therapy
- Low-fusing ceramic blocks
- CERAC technology
- Caries dye indicator
- LED laser light
- Valplast dentures and partials
- Fluoride-free cleanings
- Digital x-rays
- Intraoral camera photos
Some of the restorative procedures I offer to my patients are:
- Bridges, Partials, and Dentures
- CEREC Restorations
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Valplast Dentures and Partials
- Tooth-colored Restorations
