NATURAL DENTISTRY PHILOSOPHY
The natural dentistry philosophy hinges on preventive dentistry. When disease and damaging conditions are avoided, or at least caught at their earliest stages of development, your natural teeth and gums remain healthy, strong and beautiful. Beginning with your new patient evaluation, and continuing with each visit, Dr. Olsen and his team rely on experience and technology to ensure your optimal health, while educating you about how to remain healthy and avoiding the conditions that damage your teeth.
Your overall health and your dental health work hand-in-hand to determine your quality of life. Oral health has been conclusively linked to a number of other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and obesity. By focusing on optimizing your oral health, you can directly impact your overall quality of life. Furthermore, the early diagnosis of dental problems may shed light on other health concerns before they advance.
Many of the products and services you have available to you are influenced by our natural approach. For example, Natural Dentistry of North Texas is a mercury-free practice. When it comes to dental fillings, you will never be offered silver amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, and if you want or need to remove your amalgam fillings, we have special protocols in place to ensure your safety as well as the safe disposal of the mercury.
In fact, when it comes to any dental restoration, we will always opt for a metal free solution if available, and educate you as to your options. You will receive digital radiographs that utilize safer, lower levels of radiation to give you instant x-ray images of your teeth. These images, our intraoral camera and CAESY Education System allow you to see and understand your condition and your treatment options. This way, you can make the decision that is best for you.
When injury or genetics get in the way of your having a natural looking, natural functioning teeth, Dr. Olsen and his team utilize state-of-the-art cosmetic and restorative dentistry to give you the natural smile you desire, and help you feel normal again.
