Dr. Stewart partners with you to tailor a schedule of check-ups and professional cleanings that meets your unique oral health needs and history.
He advises on flossing and brushing techniques, and tooth-friendly foods and drinks. These visits allow early detection of decay and disease. Dr. Stewart also brings to bear technologies that quickly detect harmful infection-causing pathogens or microorganisms before they turn into big, destructive problems. This biological, microscopic scanning allows efficient, tailored treatment and prevention, because risks for gum disease are accurately identified at their earliest stages of development. Likewise, nontraumatic, nonsurgical products such as natural antimicrobial solutions can promote mouth health.
Restoring your teeth, the healthy way
Contrary to their name, silver fillings do not contain silver as the filling’s as the main ingredient. They get their name from the silver hue, but these fillings are made from a mix of metals that includes approximately 50 percent mercury. This metal is associated with numerous ailments and medical conditions, from mood disorders to kidney and respiratory problems. For this reason, an estimated 52 percent of general dentists don’t use silver fillings and some countries have even banned mercury amalgam in dentistry.
While these dentists may market themselves as “mercury-free,” not all can promote their practices as “mercury-safe.” The latter term refers to the safe handling of restorations and materials that contain mercury, notably, the removal of these fillings to make way for their beautiful, durable, and nontoxic replacements.
Call (855) 233-0023 to schedule an appointment with a practice that is trained and equipped to safely remove mercury, and that uses the healthiest materials and techniques to maintain your oral health.
