Our Total-Wellness Approach to Dentistry
At Dental Wellness of Bend in Bend, OR, we view your dental health through the lens of your overall health and well-being. What does this mean? It means that we provide treatments that not only improve the aesthetic and functionality of your smile but also take your total body health into consideration. We’re a 100% mercury-free dental practice and we do everything we can to ensure that you smile big and live healthily.
Our practice is centered around our patients’ needs and we always keep your total health in mind. That’s why we practice mercury-free dentistry. Mercury is most commonly used in silver (amalgam) fillings and can pose a health risk as the amalgam releases mercury over time. However, the highest risk of mercury exposure exists during the placement and removal of amalgam, which is why we follow the SAFE protocol for removing all amalgam fillings to safeguard our patients’ health.
The Whole Picture
When you visit us for your dental care, we take the time to get to know you as a person, understand your smile concerns, and try to see the full picture of your overall health. With that in mind, we perform 3D scans on new patients to make sure that they don’t have any active infections in their mouth. Infections and bad bacteria are often signs of larger, systemic issues. The mouth is the window to the body and maintaining great oral health will help patients avoid a myriad of health problems down the road.
pH & Bacterial Load
In addition to our routine cleanings, exams, and X-rays, we also measure the pH and bacterial load in our patients’ mouths. This step provides us with great insight into the effects of our patients’ oral hygiene and diet on their oral health. We believe that it’s very important to understand the total-wellness of our patients in order to truly provide the best treatment recommendations and care.
