What is holistic (biological) dentistry?

Biological dentistry, also known as holistic dentistry is an alternative approach to dental care that emphasizes the relationship between oral health and overall well-being. It focuses on the use of biologically compatible materials and techniques that minimize potential harm to the body.

Dr. Cortez is a biological dentist who will take a more holistic approach, considering the impact of dental procedures and materials on the entire body, including the immune system and overall health. We use biocompatible materials for fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations, and strive to avoid the use of toxic substances such as mercury in amalgam fillings.

Additionally, biological dentists like Dr. Cortez may consider the potential impact of dental infections, root canals, and jaw misalignment on overall health. We work in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to address underlying health issues that may be related to oral health.
