METAL-FREE DENTISTRY WITH OVERALL HEALTH IN MIND
Our Office Maintains Complete Oral Health in a Metal, Toxic Free Atmosphere
Our office is Metal-Free, Mercury-Safe, and Flouride-Free. Biological dentistry is concerned with how the whole body is affected by what happens in the mouth, and our office utilizes biocompatible dental materials, techniques and procedures to not only treat dental problems but also the systemic causes of those problems. The body reflects what happens in the mouth, and the mouth reflects what happens in the body.
First and foremost, the main objective of biologic dentists is to do no harm. The practical application of this is to not knowingly place any substance into people that will cause harm. This would pertain to materials including mercury amalgam fillings, nickel beryllium metals, and procedures such as root canals. The further practical application of this certification is to properly and safely remove these materials and treat any infected oral areas in our patients.
Dr. Wilke is one of the first dentists in the United States to become Certified in Biological Dentistry. This certification is through The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine. (IABDM) The certification involves written exams as well as oral case presentations. This new designation indicates that Dr. Wilke has studied to show himself approved.
