Our patients’ smiles say a great deal about the quality of the work that Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates perform. These smiles are not only attractive and natural in appearance, but they are also healthy. Teeth, gums, and associated joints and oral structures are free of pain and function at their best, fluidly and efficiently.
Why do our patients look and feel so great? We help them preserve their natural teeth and tissues. Biological structures are superior to even the most advanced dental materials and restorations. The approach that our dental office in Clearwater, FL, takes to dentistry contrasts with conventional techniques; historically, the focus has been on creating a problem. We never want you to have a problem to treat in the first place! And, should a problem arise, we want to treat that condition early into the disease process proactively. That way, conditions are resolved quickly, non-traumatically, and conservatively (in a way that preserves maximum natural tissues).
We are privileged to provide a glimpse into some of how we support optimal health, wellbeing, and a pleasant experience at our office. After you have sunk your teeth into how we stand out from other dental practices, near and far, we encourage you to contact us to schedule your appointment.
Non-toxic and biocompatible materials
We only use safe products and materials that do not present allergies, sensitivities, and systemic problems. For instance, we only place fillings and other restorations (such as crowns) made from ceramic materials. You will not find silver-colored fillings made from metals here. Likewise, we only place implants made from zirconium as an alternative to the titanium that most dentists continue to remember. These materials also support sustained health; metal-free restorations are generally “kind” to surrounding natural tissues. So, they are compatible with your gums and surrounding structures.
It is not sufficient for a practice that markets itself as “natural,” “biological,” or “holistic” to remove metal fillings like they would remove or work with non-metal fillings. We are an authentically natural, biological, and holistic practice. Since metal fillings contain a known toxin, mercury, there are unique protocols that must be taken to ensure the material is removed safely. We use specialized techniques and equipment to minimize mercury exposure during this process. So, we can proudly say that we are both “mercury-free” and “mercury-safe.” Not every “natural” practice can say the same.
We use many tools and substances to support the most non-invasive, painless, and comfortable procedures possible. For instance, ozone is an excellent complement to many dental treatments. It offers “light-touch” sterilization and encourages healthy, speedy, and natural healing. Additionally, we use Platelet Rich Fibrin made from your body’s blood to support restorative healing and tissue regeneration following treatments such as extractions. The use of lasers also presents a gentle alternative to invasive, traditional cutting techniques. This approach removes and reshapes tissues to encourage healthy attachments between the gums and teeth among patients with active periodontal disease.
We also encourage you to rethink conventional procedures. Our neuromuscular approach to dentures, or proactive my functional approach to orthodontics, provides real resolution for lasting health, function, and a beautiful smile. This is just a shortlist of the many services that we have to offer. Contact us today to find out more.
