What to expect from the care of noted Austin, TX biological dentist
Maybe you have heard the terms biological, holistic, or environmental dentist, but you aren’t sure what they mean. Is it an old-fashioned approach to dentistry? A new name for conventional treatments? Something new age? Or high-tech? In the capable hands of Austin, TX dentist, Dr. Griffin Cole, biological dentistry is all those things, and a bit more.
Old meets new
A dentist understands that your mouth is an integral part of your body. Rather than simply treating symptoms of oral disease, he also works to uncover underlying causes. He considers the impact of any dental treatment on the whole person.
The concept has its roots in ancient Ayurvedic medicine. Dr. Cole applies leading-edge technologies and the safest available materials and techniques to those core principles, to deliver dental care that fosters a healthier life.
Not an either/or choice
It is essential to understand that biological dental care incorporates many procedures and techniques used in traditional dentistry . . . with some important exceptions:
- Mercury-Free – Silver-colored amalgam fillings contain toxic mercury. A biological dentist does not use this material or place patients or staff at risk.
- Mercury safe – Since amalgam has been used extensively in this country since the mid-1800s, most people have at least one such filling. Many are choosing to have amalgam removed to reduce health risks and improve appearance. Dr. Cole is trained by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology in amalgam removal techniques to minimize risks from mercury vapor and particles.
- Communication – A core tenet of biological dentistry is educating the public that safe, healthy alternatives exist. At E. Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD you can expect information and open discussion on your treatment options.
