Holistic Dentistry San Diego
Just what is “holistic dentistry”? Holistic Dentistry defined as per Google:
“Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biologic dentistry, is an alternative approach that focuses on the use of non-toxic restorative materials for dental work, and emphasizes the unrecognized impact that dental toxins and dental infections may have on a person’s overall health.”
That’s a mouthful (no pun intended). In a nutshell, it means that foreign materials in your mouth can certainly affect your health and well-being. Having a dentist who is acutely aware of this is a good thing. No, it’s a great thing. Because it shows that the dentist is not taking the easy way out. It shows that every thing to do with your health is the prime concern of such a dentist. And Dr. George Georgaklis is just that type of dentist — one within whom you can place your absolute trust to do the right thing at every turn.
Dr. George is on an ongoing quest to keep his holistic dentistry approach up-to-date as new, tested and proven materials become available. One of the first dentists to become mercury-free in 1985 when the use of newer composite filling materials for posterior teeth became available. Mercury had been used in dental fillings for years, but is had been shown to be a heavy metal that is toxic to humans. The FDA recommends that children, pregnant women, and people with mercury sensitivity avoid amalgam dental fillings that use mercury.
Dr. George has opted to eliminate the use of metal amalgam using mercury for his patients. Instead, he uses metal-free, mercury-free composite resin material for fillings. These are safe, reliable fillings that are tinted to blend with the patient’s natural tooth color. This ensures a natural looking result along with the most healthy choice available.
A sensitivity and awareness of mercury in fillings is just one area in which Dr. George practices holistic dentistry. Keeping up with the latest advances in dental health from a holistic standpoint is very important to Dr. George, because it is important to his patients, and because holistic dentistry is just makes good health sense.
