One of the holistic dental options provided at Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD is biocompatible dentistry. When you receive a dental treatment at our office, we will make sure that the materials involved are compatible with your body, ensuring that your treatments have the maximum effect and that they meet your needs. Please call us at 310-734-4557 for more information on biocompatible dentistry in Beverly Hills, California, and to make your appointment with one of our dentists.
There are several aspects to biocompatible dentistry. These include non-surgical approaches to gum disease, the avoidance of mercury, amalgam, or other potentially toxic materials in dental fillings, and the belief that root canals may endanger the overall health of the patient though the spread of trapped bacteria to the rest of the body. Proper nutrition is also strongly advocated. Above all, this type of dentistry is based on the belief that every tooth is connected to another part of your body, meaning that the health of a single tooth can affect the health of a completely different area of the body.
When you visit our office, we will perform tests, including blood and urine tests, to determine which treatments and which materials will provide the greatest benefit to you.
