At the Premier Post Falls Metal-Free Dentistry Practice, traditional Dentistry is changing for the best
At Loftus Family Dental, we are always on the lookout for new solutions to old problems that have kept us awake at night. Replacing traditional metal materials with much more advanced, biocompatible ones is proving to be of great benefit to our patients.
For generations, the only option to solve the most common ailments was through metal: Fillings, Dental Crowns, and other Metal Dental Prostheses. Over time, however, we have come to understand that these treatments might not have been for the best; not only were they aesthetically unpleasing, they could also create further damage and even endanger overall physical health.
Why is that? Metal has never been the flexible, resistant material we wanted it to be. It causes discoloration, it reacts poorly to temperature changes, and it creates new space for bacteria and decay by reshaping and expanding. Metal constructions have also always required your Dentist to take away part of your original tooth structure, causing chipping, fracturing, and other potential damage to your teeth.
Here at Loftus Family Dental, we always keep up-to-date with the latest, most advanced technology available in Modern Dentistry. As such, we have discovered wonderful alternatives to the traditional metal materials that are proving to be much more satisfactory to our Post Falls patients.
We offer several Metal-Free alternatives, including composite fillings, that takes care of most of the issues related to metal fillings while also providing a more satisfying white color to make your smile shine brightly. These new fillings are blended with adhesive, and no removal of existing tooth structures is necessary, keeping the teeth in question healthy and intact.
Composite fillings are made from glass and plastic, and they, fortunately, do not carry any of the dangerous additives often found in metal fillings, such as mercury. In addition, we also have many other options made from even more biocompatible materials, ensuring the most organic and safe connection to your existing teeth and dental arches.
