Biological Dentistry

Biological dentists recognize the impact of toxic materials and relate them to your dental and physiological health. They are concerned with the integrity of the oral cavity and use materials and procedures in their practices that are systemically compatible with your body.

Dr. Joseph Mercola says “You’ve heard the expression your eyes are the windows to your soul? Well, some say your teeth are the windows to your health and I am constantly amazed at how powerful a predictor of health your teeth can be”.

Dr. Mercola also states, “When I have seen chronically ill patients with nearly cavity-free teeth, I am encouraged that they will likely get well quickly. If, on the other hand, their mouths are full of fillings and root canals, the prognosis is not always as good”.

All dentists to some extent see the importance of the mouth in the overall health of an individual. For instance, studies have concluded a link between gum disease, heart health and diabetes. However, most dentists are not trained in the long term consequences of how dentistry can affect the whole body.

Dr. Merrily Sandford accepts the fundamental truth of the mouth-body connection. Your dental treatment or lack of dental treatment can impact your overall health.

Biological dentistry uses dental materials that are personalized for you and your body. One size does not fit all when it comes to dental treatment, so we perform a compatibility test to ensure that the materials we use along with the procedures we perform are compatible with your whole body and are Mercury-Free.

In a nutshell, biological dentistry views your teeth and gums as an integrated part of your entire body and the primary aim is to resolve your dental problems while impacting the rest of your body as little as possible.
