Discover how a biological dentist can provide more thorough care for your oral and systemic health.
We often forget that our oral health is connected to our overall health. Therefore, our mouths give us insight into our general health and vice versa. When you turn to our Stittsville, ON dentist Dr. Roy Kang for biological dentistry, Dr. Kang and his team take a comprehensive, whole-body approach to the care you get to support not just healthy teeth and gums but your general health and overall wellbeing, too.
What makes a biological dentist different from regular dentists?
Dr. Kang underwent all of the same education and training that a traditional dentist undergoes before he becomes a doctor. The only difference is in the practices and principles we put in place with regards to patient care.
While a regular dentist may focus more on treating and diagnosing diseases of the teeth and gums, the biological dentistry care we offer here in Stittsville, ON, looks at all aspects of your lifestyle and health to pinpoint potential risk factors and ways to reduce your risk for developing certain dental issues. We focus on preventive measures we can take now to promote better overall health and also support healthy teeth and gums.
What dental treatments and services are different with a biological dentist?
Here at Kang Dentistry, our focus is on providing dental solutions that are more holistic and natural, while avoiding any procedures or dental work that could come with complications or health concerns. For example, many dentists have and still use metal amalgam to fill cavities. This metal amalgam is known to contain mercury, which can be toxic and dangerous for your health.
Here at Kang Dentistry, we avoid toxic metals and other dental materials that could pose a risk to your health and instead provide restorations that are crafted from safe and more esthetically pleasing materials such as composite resin, ceramic, and porcelain.
From discussing root canal therapy alternatives to supplementation and ceramic dental implants, we offer a wide range of procedures, treatment options, and preventive care that put our patient’s health at the forefront of everything we do.
