“Biological dentistry is a thought process, an attitude, and a guide for making choices in the dental practice.” IAOMT.
Being biological dentists means that we believe that your teeth are an integral part of your body and therefore your overall health.
At Ozone Dentistry, all our staff and hygienist believe in a biological and holistic approach to dentistry. We believe that overall health and wellbeing are influenced by oral health. We also believe in the reverse, which is that overall health influences oral health. This is the oral cavity and body connection.
The mouth is not an organ independent from the rest of the body. As the World Oral Health Report clearly states, the relationship between oral health and general health is proven, with emerging new evidence continuing to further strengthen the link.
We are a metal free practice
At Ozone Dentistry, we understand that every body is different, each one of us reacts differently to various materials. We also understand that different metals can react with each other in our moist oral environment producing unwanted and harmful galvanic reactions. For this reason, we have chosen to be a metal free practice. If you are concerned about the biocompatibility of different materials with your body, we can offer you biocompatibility tests which can test hundreds of different dental materials.
Mouth. Body. Health.
We should not miss the point that the mouth is the pathway by which nutrition enters our gut and the rest of our body. The mouth is the beginning of the digestive process.
- Loss of teeth can have a negative impact on nutrition and overall health.
- Bacteria from the mouth can cause infection in other parts of the body when the immune system has been compromised by disease or medical treatments.
- Systemic conditions and their treatment are known to impact oral health.
Dental and Overall Health Assessment.
We address your mouth and body as a whole and this is the reason why a thorough assessment of your overall health is carried out as part of a dental health assessment which both inform the development of your specific dental treatment plan to ensure you are able to achieve optimal dental and overall health.
