At Tooth & Co., we are dedicated to revolutionizing dental care by embracing biocompatible fillings, a cutting-edge and health-centric alternative to traditional dental materials. Located in the heart of Fairhope, AL, our dental practice is committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of care that not only addresses oral health but also prioritizes overall well-being. Discover why biocompatible fillings are a game-changer and how Tooth & Co. is leading the way in offering this innovative service.
Traditional dental fillings have commonly utilized materials such as amalgam, which may contain mercury, or other metal-based compounds. While these materials have been proven effective in restoring dental health, concerns have arisen regarding potential allergenic reactions, environmental impact, and the release of toxins.
Biocompatible fillings, on the other hand, are crafted from materials that are harmonious with the body, posing minimal risk of adverse reactions. Tooth & Co. advocates for biocompatible fillings as they align with our commitment to providing comprehensive and patient-centered care. Here are some key reasons why all patients should consider asking for biocompatible fillings:
Biocompatible fillings are made from materials that are non-toxic and free from common allergens. This makes them an ideal choice for individuals with sensitivities to traditional dental materials, ensuring a safer and more comfortable dental experience.
Unlike traditional amalgam fillings that may contain mercury, biocompatible fillings are mercury-free. This eliminates the potential risks associated with mercury exposure, providing peace of mind for patients who are concerned about the impact of toxic substances on their health.
Biocompatible fillings offer a more natural and aesthetic appearance compared to traditional metal fillings. Tooth-colored and seamlessly blended with the natural tooth structure, these fillings provide a discreet and attractive solution for restoring dental health without compromising on looks.
Biocompatible fillings often require less tooth preparation compared to traditional materials. This minimally invasive approach preserves more of the natural tooth structure, contributing to better long-term oral health and reducing the risk of future complications.
Choosing biocompatible fillings reflects an environmentally conscious decision. These fillings are crafted from materials that are environmentally sustainable and pose minimal impact on ecosystems. Tooth & Co. is committed to promoting eco-friendly dental solutions for a healthier planet.
Our journey towards providing biocompatible fillings begins with a comprehensive consultation. During this session, our experienced dental team evaluates the patient's oral health, discusses their concerns, and determines the most suitable biocompatible filling materials for their individual needs.
Tooth & Co. offers a range of biocompatible filling materials, including composite resins, porcelain, and glass ionomers. Our dentists work closely with patients to choose the material that aligns with their health goals, aesthetic preferences, and overall well-being.
The tooth is carefully prepared for the placement of the biocompatible filling. Unlike traditional fillings that may require more extensive tooth reduction, biocompatible fillings often involve minimal tooth preparation, preserving the natural structure of the tooth.
Our skilled dentists employ advanced techniques to precisely place the biocompatible filling. This ensures a snug fit, optimal functionality, and a seamless integration with the natural tooth. The result is a restoration that not only looks natural but also contributes to the overall health of the patient.
Biocompatible fillings at Tooth & Co. are designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the smile. Our team takes great care to match the color and shape of the filling to the surrounding teeth, creating a result that is virtually indistinguishable from natural dentition.
At Tooth & Co., we believe in empowering our patients with knowledge. As part of our commitment to patient education, we provide information on the benefits of biocompatible fillings, proper oral hygiene practices, and ongoing care to support long-term dental health.
Tooth & Co. invites you to experience the difference of biocompatible fillings – a choice that goes beyond traditional dentistry to prioritize your health and well-being.
