The doctors at Holistic Dental Centers are not your average dentists; they are dedicated to providing toxin-free general dentistry from a holistic perspective to help patients feel and look better. With offices in Cary and Cornelius, they provide convenient locations for residents from Raleigh to Charlotte and the surrounding areas, to receive healthy, metal-free dentistry. All crowns, bridges, fillings, and other dental restorations they use are made of aesthetic, biocompatible materials.
Although fillings and crowns can save many damaged teeth, in some cases extraction is the only option. Whether the teeth were extracted, or lost to gum disease or trauma, it is wise to replace them promptly. Restoring missing teeth has more importance than just making your smile look pretty. Replacement is necessary to reestablish proper oral function and preserve your dental health. The loss of teeth can affect the way you speak, eat, and the alignment of your remaining teeth. However, the material the restoration is made of is just as important as the results.
The metals that are commonly used in many conventional dental practices are not good for the body and can even be toxic. Nickel is carcinogenic and allergenic. Metal alloys and saliva (which acts as electrolytes) produce ions, and can turn your mouth into a form of a charged battery. This charge is called galvanic toxicity or galvanic current, common signs of it are insomnia, nerve shocks, an electric charge reacting to utensils, and a metal taste in the mouth.
The brain triggers all regulating events in the body by emitting electrical charges. There is concern that the galvanic current in the mouth can disrupt the natural current in the brain, interfering with these signals and causing blockages.
The doctors at Holistic dental centers are knowledgeable about the latest and safest alternatives to metal dental restorations. They have a deeper understanding of the effects that dental materials and treatments can have on the entire body. They focus on more than just treatment, they believe knowledge is power, and educate their patients on how to become advocates for their own health. They encourage prevention, proper nutrition, healthy choices, and total body wellness.
