Safe Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
Sunnyvale holistic dentist Dr. Bhawna Gupta understands how mercury vapor, dental infections, and a misaligned bite (called TMD or TMJ disorder) can lead to deteriorating oral and full-body health. These problems can be tightly linked. Mercury fillings, also called silver amalgams, can crack teeth and over time lead to infections and a bite that becomes off. Sunnyvale holistic dentist Dr. Bhawna Gupta has researched the possible emission of toxic mercury vapors from silver fillings. To address these problems, our Sunnyvale holistic dentist focuses on patient education and removing your mercury fillings safely. At Sunnyvale Dental Care, we adhere to the proven mercury filling removal protocols recommended by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations. During your visit at Sunnyvale Dental Care, holistic dentist Dr. Bhawna Gupta will happily share his knowledge and explain his mercury free dental practice.
Holistic dentistry is a research-supported philosophy that recognizes that the health relationship and interdependence between your teeth, your mouth, and the rest of your body. To take a simple example, if you have an infection that causes your gums to bleed, harmful bacteria in your mouth can enter your blood stream and spread infection to your heart. A more complex example is if your bite is off, and your teeth connect on one side of your mouth before the other. This disharmony can torque the jaw sideways and shift your upper vertebrae and neck muscles. The result can be headaches, back aches and spinal problems--all from a few teeth not fitting together properly.
Holistic dentistry also applies to the materials used in your dental procedures and cleanings, and even the green dental techniques used to construct the dental office. Sunnyvale holistic dentist Dr. Bhawna Gupta practices holistic dentistry by combining years of experience and education, modern technology, sound dental science, and a sincere concern for your dental and full body health and well-being.
