In recent years, biological dentistry has provided great benefits to patients as dentists learn more about the connection between the health of the mouth and the health of the body. Biological dentistry, also known as biological dentistry, is focused on improving a patient’s overall health and wellbeing.
Dr. Olivia Hart of Virginia Biological Dentistry understands the connection between the mouth and the entire body. Her biological dental services are based on using materials that are completely safe, and working with patients to identify the underlying cause of dental issues, rather than only fixing the effects.
For many years, dentists used metal fillings when addressing tooth decay. This material was used because it was affordable and durable. Unfortunately, this material also includes mercury, a material that has been linked to health problems such as anxiety, memory loss, headaches, and fatigue. Dr. Hart only uses mercury-free materials, which have the added benefit of being tooth-colored and less noticeable than traditional metal fillings. Additionally, she is trained and experienced at removing metal fillings so that the patient can lessen their risk of exposure.
In some cases, tooth decay and gum disease are caused by not brushing or flossing properly. In other cases, they are symptoms of a larger health issue. Dr. Hart believes in developing a relationship with each patient in order to understand the cause of the problem. Similarly, the team at Virginia Biological Dentistry understands that problems that start in the mouth can affect the overall health of the body.
