If you are like most people, you are careful as to what you and your family consume. You would never think about eating something that is toxic or could have a negative impact or your health. This is an important element in the philosophy behind holistic dentistry. Just like you would never let your child chew on a toy covered in mercury, holistic dentists such as Dr. Carl McMillan would never consider placing a silver amalgam (mercury) filling in your mouth for you to chew your food with. In fact, here at the Holistic Dental Centers of Cary and Cornelius we will never perform any procedure we believe endangers the health of our patients.
This is a common question, and the simple answer is dental care that can fix problems without causing harm to the body. Some people think that a holistic dentist simply does not place mercury fillings and removes ones that are already there. Many dentists do not place mercury filling and some remove existing fillings. The procedure a dentist uses to remove mercury fillings determines if they are indeed MERCURY SAFE. We use a very strict protocol when removing mercury fillings; this is an important part of what we do. Your health is our top priority, so we have established a relationship with local physicians who can provide vitamin C via an IV, which helps improve your cellular health. While removing the filling we use large amounts of water, negative ion generators, air filtration, and high-volume evacuation, to list part of what we do to keep you safe while removing this toxin from your mouth. Other aspects of what we do to keep you healthy include:
