It is important that patients in the Cary and Cornelius communities take good care of their smile. This is to help maintain better dental health and therefore, better health overall. This is the aspect a biological dentist approaches with patients. The oral systemic connection is the connection between the mouth and the rest of the body. Studies continue to show that disease, decay, and other problems within the smile can carry through the bloodstream and to the rest of the body, increasing the risk for many medical problems including risks of heart disease and strokes. This is why the team of the Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers focuses on providing biological dentistry.
There are many benefits to visiting a biological dentist. Dr. Carl McMillan is a dentist in the community who can work with patients in finding out if biological care is right for them.
First off, a biological dentist takes into consideration the affect every treatment will have on the mouth and the rest of the body. Nothing is done without knowing the impact it can have elsewhere. This is why our team avoids the use of titanium dental implants, which is immunosuppressive and does more harm than good. They also avoid the placement of silver amalgam fillings, as the mercury can release toxins into the body. Additionally, they avoid the use of in-office power bleaching, root canals, fluorides, and sealants, all which are linked to issues within the smile or body.
If you live in or around the areas of Cary or Cornelius, we recommend that you take the time to learn about the ways in which biological dentistry can improve not only the healthy and beauty of the smile, but the wellness of the entire body. Contact Dr. Carl McMillan to learn about the advantages of visiting a holistic dental team such as ours and taking the journey into dentistry without causing unwanted harm to the smile or body. We welcome new and existing patients into our state-of-the-art practice and enjoy educating patients on the simplicity of biological dental care.
