Biologic Dentistry – Sometimes known as holistic dentistry or biologic dentistry, biological dentistry is a different approach to the care of teeth – an approach that considers the patient’s entire state of physical and emotional health when assessing his or her dental health.
Biomimetic Dentistry – Uses techniques designed to promote full functionality among dental tissues — its primary focus is to preserve the tooth. This is typically accomplished by only removing the areas that have experienced significant decay and other damage to the tooth and applying a restorative bond to the remaining tooth.
Holistic Dentistry – Advocates the practice of preventive measures designed to promote optimal dental health. The principle tenets include making good nutritional decisions for the purpose of maintaining overall good bodily health as well as prevent and possible reverse the progression of degenerative oral disease, the avoidance of using traditional dental prosthetic materials that contain toxic materials, such as mercury in amalgam fillings and BPA-based sealants, and the avoidance of using fluoride in both topical or ingested forms.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry – Thanks to recent scientific advances, minimally invasive dentistry operates on the main principle of doing as little to the tooth as possible while optimizing oral health.
Ozone Dentistry – Uses ozone derived from oxygen and is consequently applied to areas of the teeth that have become affected by tooth decay. Ozone has the capability to kill 99% of all oral bacteria in as little as 10 minutes. Ozone therapy is being increasingly used as an alternative to drilling in the treatment of cavities, which makes it an ideal option for those with dental phobias.
