Healthy Dentistry in San Antonio, TX
To the San Antonio dentists at South Texas Smiles, you’re so much more than just another set of teeth. We care about you as a person, which means we care about your overall health, not just the health of your teeth. We practice biological dentistry which lets us focus on your overall health and support your general well-being.Contact Us
The practice of biological dentistry recognizes the links between your teeth and your body’s overall health. Think of it as “bio-logical dentistry,” so it’s dentistry that biologically makes sense. Your body’s health is linked to the health of your teeth, and heart problems, diabetes, and strokes have all been linked to poor oral health. We focus on strong preventive care to help your mouth stay healthy, which, in turn, helps your body stay healthy!
South Texas Smiles is a mercury-safe dental office, which means that we not only remove your toxic mercury amalgam fillings safely, but we also place mercury-free dental work.
Benefits of Mercury-Free Dentistry
- Looks More Natural
- Stronger (amalgam fillings tend to weaken over time)
- Porcelain is Non-Toxic
Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique
When we remove your mercury amalgam restorations, we take every precaution to ensure that we are using the safest methods possible. SMART, or Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, is the set of guidelines that we follow during the removal process. The guidelines include keeping the fillings cool, cutting the amalgam into chunks, using additional air purification, and other precautions that are all in place for your safety.
