Biological Dentistry Q & A

What is biological dentistry?

Biological dentistry is a revolutionary approach to oral health that examines its symbiotic relationship to your overall health. With numerous treatments and services available in his office, Dr. Panahpour prioritizes your health and safety while caring for your teeth and gums. 

Treatments and services in biological dentistry aim to find the safest and least toxic route to improved oral health. 

Dr. Panahpour considers the potential long-term effects of every treatment and offers numerous alternative treatments not available at every dental office. He can even re-perform treatments you’ve already had in a way that is safer for your health. 

In addition to prioritizing safety throughout the treatment process, Dr. Panahpour performs thorough diagnostic evaluations for every patient to find the underlying cause of their health problems and other factors that may be contributing to them. 

While planning your treatment, Dr. Panahpour selects procedures and techniques to prevent new or worsening future complications. 

Which services are available with biological dentistry?

Dr. Panahpour performs various procedures in his office to minimize the harmful effects of problematic oral health conditions. He offers a variety of treatment options to address these conditions, including: 

Mercury removal

Mercury removal is a procedure to remove silver amalgam fillings, which contain up to 50% mercury. Mercury is a chemical that is harmful to your health and can damage your stomach, brain, kidneys, and other organs over time. Dr. Panahpour replaces the fillings with safer biocompatible alternatives.

Root canal alternatives

Root canal alternatives are treatments that can minimize the chances of developing chronic infections from a tooth infection. Alternatives like ozone gas and calcium hydroxide can kill bacteria and alleviate dead tissue in an infected tooth.

Metal-free dental implants

Dental implants, which replace the roots of missing teeth, are traditionally made of titanium. Dr. Panahpour offers metal-free zirconia implants for patients who are allergic to metal implants.

What are the benefits of biological dentistry?

Biological dentistry uniquely prioritizes your health and wellness in the present and future. While traditional dentistry can address and treat numerous oral health conditions, it often fails to account for the many factors contributing to them and the potential complications that come with treating them. 

A few notable benefits of biological dentistry are:

  • No fluoride
  • No mercury
  • Safe handling of mercury during removal
  • Use of biocompatible materials
  • Emphasis on minimally invasive treatments

Dr. Panahpour selects materials that are not only biocompatible but strong and durable too. He creates prosthetics and restorations that look almost identical to your natural teeth and won’t cause future health concerns.
