Dentist in Irvine, CA stresses the importance of the biocompatibility of dental materials
Irvine, CA area patients who are faced with restoring their smiles will want to focus on ensuring they work with a dental professional who understands the importance of the biocompatibility of the dental materials used to enhance their appearance. Dr. David Son and his team of professionals provide holistic and biocompatible dentistry for new and existing patients.
What is a biocompatible and holistic dentist?
A professional who ensures the materials and products used to enhance patient smiles are healthy and safe is a dentist who offers biocompatible or holistic dental care. Dr. David Son wants patients to know that the use of materials that are appropriate for the smile is of utmost importance to him. Many dentists in the community still utilize materials such as silver amalgam, which can be harmful to the body as a whole. Studies continue to show that patients are dealing with problems such as mercury toxicity from the placement of this material in the body. Instead of putting potentially harmful materials in the mouth that can affect the body in a negative way, Dr. David Son educates patients on the use of materials that are safe, such as:
- Composite resin
- Ceramic and porcelain
When patients visit the practice to have their silver amalgam fillings replaced, Dr. David Son follows the strict protocols of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, also referred to as the IAOMT. These protocols are put in place for the safety of the patient, dentist, and the staff present in the room during the removal of mercury-filled restorations and allows for proper placement of composite resin or ceramic restorations.
