At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we practice holistic dentistry. Our approach is different than the approaches of ordinary dentists: we focus on your entire body and its role in your dental health.
Science has established beyond any doubt that there is a connection between dental health and systemic health. For example, gum disease can lead to inflammation in the rest of the body. Furthermore, when you come in to our office for a cleaning and checkup, you can rest assured that our approach, including our technology and the products we use, are safer for you than those in a conventional dental practice.
To give you just one example, we do not use conventional amalgam fillings when we fill a cavity. To put it plainly, mercury is a known toxin, and make up half of the material in amalgam fillings.
For another, we do not use or recommend fluoride. While it still has the approval of the American Dental Association, we know that fluoride can build up in the body, and since it’s in a lot of toothpastes it has easy access by being absorbed through the mouth. This accumulation can lead to future health problems.
At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we use nothing but biocompatible materials to restore your bite and smile and ensure your health. Patients throughout Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and all over the Peninsula rely on our holistic dentistry. We offer complete general dentistry, and much more. Schedule an appointment with us today!
