Health Centered Dentistry
At Kingwood Dentistry we want your oral health to be great and we also want your overall health to be great too. For this reason, we focus on providing health centered dentistry with your long-term and overall health results in mind!
Being a health centered dentistry means that we work hard to provide a number of services that can help you achieve a higher standard of oral and overall health. Some of these services include:
- Teeth Cleanings – It has been shown that having a regular teeth cleaning is one of the best things you can do to help prevent tooth decay and protect the health of your teeth – however, teeth cleanings help with your overall health too. In recent studies, gum disease (also known as periodontitis) has been linked with heart related issues – so keeping your teeth and mouth free of damaging material seems more important than ever before.
- Mercury Free Dentistry – In the past, most dentists offered fillings made of a metal amalgam that uses mercury as one of the filling ingredients. It has been shown that over time, these old fillings can leak the mercury into the body, which has been linked in a number of dental studies to health problems. At Kingwood Dentistry we choose to be a mercury free practice so that our patients can receive top quality dental care that helps keep your overall health better.
- Mercury-amalgam filling removal – If you have mercury amalgam fillings, our team can help have these fillings safely removed and replaced with mercury-free tooth colored fillings. Our mercury-free tooth colored fillings are made to match the appearance of your natural teeth, so those around you won’t even notice you’ve had fillings done!
These are just some of the health centered dental options our team works to provide to our patients. Have more questions for us about health centered dentistry? Call us at Kingwood Dentistry today!
