Holistic dentist and Mercury free dental fillings in Austin
Austin holistic dentist, Dr. E. Griffin Cole, does not simply treat teeth. He treats people. With biologically-friendly materials such as mercury-free dental fillings, and strict protocols to avoid harmful impact on the body, his style of dentistry safeguards overall wellness.
The mouth is part of the body, just like your hand or your brain. Yet throughout modern dentistry, it has been treated as a separate entity. Problems with teeth and gums influence comfort, digestion, health, speech, and self-confidence. Medications and therapies also have an impact on the teeth and gums.
Today we have a much better comprehension of the oral-systemic connection. Enlightened medical professionals and patients understand that anything that goes into the mouth has a potentially negative or positive effect on the body, and vice versa.
Mercury-free dental fillings – a personal choice
Mercury-free treatment is a core principle for any ethical holistic dentist. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, a known neurotoxin. Holistic dentists do not place mercury fillings. In addition, Dr. Cole’s practice is mercury-safe. That means he is trained in the IAOMT protocol for safe removal of amalgam – a technique that protects the patient and dental staff from contact with mercury vapor or particulate matter. In fact, Dr. Cole is the featured dentist in all the protocol videos.
Savvy people from the Austin area and far beyond seek Dr. Cole’s expertise in removal of amalgam fillings. They know that having amalgam simply ground out with conventional methods can cause more harm than good.
Having amalgam fillings removed is a personal choice. Here are some points to consider:
- Are you unhappy with the appearance of silver-colored fillings in your smile?
- Do you have problems with filled teeth cracking, or mouth pain in those areas?
- Do you have symptoms of chronic mercury exposure? (Please talk with Dr. Cole, if you aren’t sure what they are.)
- Do you like the idea of biologically-friendly materials in your mouth?
- Are you concerned about waste mercury in the environment?
- Do you want amalgam removed correctly and safely?
