MERCURY FREE DENTISTRY
Conventional “silver” amalgam fillings are comprised of about 50 percent mercury. We do not place amalgam fillings and we keep none of it on premises. Instead, we provide body-safe alternative materials that are strong and durable, and look natural.
MERCURY SAFE DENTISTRY
Our patients may request that old amalgam fillings be replaced, or those teeth may require additional dental work. We adhere to the strict protocols established by the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) for safe removal and disposal of mercury fillings. And the number one way Social Circle Dental can enhance your life is...
Biological dentistry takes a holistic approach to the next level. We not only operate a mercury free practice with mercury safe removal techniques. We treat each patient as an entire person, not a mouth, or a single dental problem. That requires an understanding that everything we do to your mouth impacts other areas of your body. We utilize only biocompatible materials, and provide advice on nutrition and detoxification to improve overall wellness.
Become a Social Circle Dental patient to start taking advantage of the benefits of an enhanced life through biological dentistry. We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
Dental implants are true marvels of modern dentistry. An implant is a tiny cylinder made of a strong biocompatible material. In a brief surgical procedure, it is precisely placed into the jawbone to replicate the root of a missing tooth. Dental implants serve a number of roles, as stand alone restorations and to stabilize dentures. For most patients, an implant is a sensible long term solution to replace a missing tooth. It is not, however, their only option. Dr. Don Jones of Social Circle Dental explains alternatives for those who are not good candidates for implants or simply don’t choose that method.
Imagine if our country’s infrastructure did not include bridges. There’d be no easy way to cross a waterway or highway by vehicle. That would seriously impair the function of our interconnecting system of roads. Your teeth are also designed to perform together. When one is missing, chewing functionDentures, appearance, and overall oral health are negatively impacted. A dental bridge spans the gap to keep your mouth operating efficiently.
A bridge can be used to restore a single missing tooth or up to three consecutive teeth. It consists of a pontic or artificial tooth, held in place by crowns cemented onto the teeth adjacent to the space.
A bridge is not removable, so a little extra attention is needed to keep it clean. While the pontic and crowns cannot develop decay, natural dentition under the crowns and throughout the rest of the mouth can. Soft tissues around the crown can also develop gum disease without proper hygiene. Dr. Jones instructs patients on the best brushing and flossing techniques. Twice a year examinations allow his hygiene team to deep clean the mouth a deep cleaning, and give Dr. Jones a chance to inspect your bridge thoroughly.
A denture is a removable prosthetic. While it doesn’t provide quite the same level of stability as an implant or bridge, a partial denture is a sound solution to replace one or more missing teeth in an arch. Modern denture materials look natural and are quite durable. A partial denture restores appearance, improves chewing function, and helps to keep other teeth from shifting out of place. You simply take the denture out for easy cleaning and good oral hygiene.
No one else has exactly the same mouth, health, lifestyle, schedule, or budget as you do. At Social Circle Dental, you won’t be pressured into a one-size-fits-all treatment for your unique situation. You get patient explanation of available options and compassionate, personalized care. Call 770-464-1900 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jones.
