Studies have indicated that the health of the mouth is connected to the health of the body. Not only do medical conditions often have symptoms that affect the mouth, but certain conditions such as Alzheimer’s, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes have been linked to dental issues. Many patients are searching for a dentist who will address care from a biological perspective, rather than only addressing the symptoms.
Dr. Olivia Hart of Virginia Biological Dentistry is committed to ensuring that that every procedure provided by her office is not only safe, but is also advantageous to the patient.
Dr. Hart and her team are committed to only using safe materials. For example, the office is mercury and metal-free, as metals have been shown to put patients’ health at risk. Additionally, Dr. Hart is trained and experienced in removing mercury fillings, utilizing a series of standardized steps to ensure that neither the patient nor the dental team are exposed to mercury toxins that are released during the procedure.
Biological dentistry is about more than avoiding the use of amalgam fillings, however. It’s also important to Dr. Hart that your cosmetic restorations give you the aesthetic results you want in a manner that is completely safe and as gentle as possible.
Perhaps, what sets biological dentistry apart from other practices is that patients are always in charge of their treatment plan. Dr. Hart and her team will treat you with the respect and courtesy that you deserve. They will explain your options, allow you to make the decision you feel is best for you, and then support your choice with excellent, and gentle, care.
