Focusing On Total Health
Many people have become more concerned and aware with what they put in their bodies and how their decisions affect their health. At Smilehaven Dental Center in San Diego’s La Mesa area, we couldn’t agree more! For patients seeking an approach to dental healthcare that takes the whole person into account, biocompatible dentistry offers many benefits – and the entire team at Smilehaven Dental Center is here to help.
What Is Biocompatible Whole-Body Dentistry?
Biocompatible dentistry is a philosophy that guides our practice, emphasizing whole-body health and well-being. Traditional dentists often focus on treating dental disease, which is an important part of any dental practice. However, a holistic dentist takes it a step further by considering how your dental condition, and subsequent treatment, will affect your systemic health over the long term.
We always ask our patients:
- What are the underlying reasons for your personal history of tooth decay or gum disease?
- What materials can we use to restore your teeth that will be the most biocompatible and least toxic?
- What dental procedures might adversely affect your health?
Biocompatible dentistry also seeks to empower patients with the information they need to make informed decisions about their own healthcare. We want to be your trusted source of dental knowledge and bring you fully into the decision-making process regarding your treatment.
