The dental office of Frederick Dreher DDS is pleased to offer biologic dentistry services to residents of Ballston Spa, NY and surrounding areas.
What is Biologic Dentistry?
Biologic dentistry is an approach to dentistry that takes into account the whole health of the patient, not just the issues pertaining to the oral cavity. In biologic dentistry, the interconnectedness of the patient’s bodily health with oral health is always considered. Biologic dentistry is not exclusive of traditional dentistry practices and treatments; rather, it encompasses a person’s whole health needs.
Aspects of Biologic Dentistry
Biologic dentists are sometimes referred to as holistic dentists, because we understand that oral health both reflects bodily health conditions and impacts bodily health.
A minimally-invasive approach is always the preferred method of treatment in biologic dentistry, unless more invasive treatments are necessary for the effectiveness of the treatments.
One of the most common treatments offered in biologic dentistry is the safe removal of mercury fillings. Since mercury fillings have been found to be so harmful, their safe removal is more important and more sought after than ever before.
Complementary therapies, such as nutritional counseling, herbal remedies, acupuncture, acupressure and homeopathy are yet another aspect of biologic dentistry in Ballston Spa, NY that patients can take advantage of at the office of Frederick Dreher, DDS.
Finally, in biologic dentistry, patients enjoy a human-centric and personalized treatment plan that is individualized for their specific needs. No one is exactly alike, and unique treatment plans and biologic dentistry education is available for everyone. This facilities an open commutation between dentist and patient so that everyone can focus on the patient’s needs.
In biologic dentistry, the patient’s whole health concerns are taken into consideration, which we feel is beneficial in a way that’s not available at all dentist locations. Contact us for more information about how biologic dentistry can make all the difference in your health.
