Metal-free for more well-being
at the Center for Biological Dentistry and Implantology in Vienna

We preserve and reconstruct your teeth using metal-free and, as far as possible, neutral materials, so that at the end of the treatment there are no allergy-causing or toxically effective foreign bodies or necrotic components left in your oral cavity. In the past decades, however, a number of metals have been used for the restoration of dentures, but in the long term they have proved to be harmful to the human organism.

Three load directions

For metals, there are basically three different directions of loading. On the one hand, the toxicity of the material plays a role. Amalgam in particular represents an extremely high burden for the organism due to its heavy metals. In addition, any metal represents a foreign body to the immune system and can potentially trigger allergies. Autoimmune diseases can also develop or be promoted. The electrical component also plays a non-negligible role in metal exposure. The metal restorations inserted in the mouth act as small antennas that are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, the radiation is amplified and the surrounding tissue is significantly heated as a result.

Amalgam in dentistry

Since the early days of its use, there have been heated discussions about the use of amalgam in dentistry. However, it is undisputed that amalgam is a non-biological substance that can cause allergic or inflammatory reactions. Its toxic components can inhibit important functions in the body. Therefore, from the point of view of environmental dentistry and biological dentistry, the removal of amalgam fillings is highly recommended.

Amalgam removal

If amalgam has to be removed (for example, if fillings have become leaky), it is possible that these fillings may simply be drilled out without appropriate protective measures. This allows toxic mercury components to enter the body. It is not uncommon for patients to complain of fatigue or joint or muscle discomfort after amalgam removal. Therefore, in biological dentistry, strict attention is paid to the professional removal of amalgam fillings.

Biological dentistry strives for a consistently metal-free dentistry. The first improvements in the general condition of patients can often be seen immediately after the treatment to remove the metal.
