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

Three directions of burden

In case of metals, there are generally three different directions of burden. On the one side the poisonousness of the material plays a role. Especially amalgam, due to its heavy metals, represents an extremely high burden for the organism. Furthermore, every metal represents a foreign element for the immune system and can potentially trigger allergies. Auto immune diseases can also be formed or favoured. The electrical component also plays a role that should not be underestimated in the burden through metals. The metal supplies used in the mouth act as small antennas, which react sensitively to electromagnetic radiation. The radiation is increased and the surrounding tissue is clearly heated.

Amalgam in dentistry

Since the beginning of its use, there have been some heavy discussions as to the use of amalgam in dentistry. Yet it is undisputed that amalgam is a non-biological material, which can cause allergic or inflammatory reactions. Its toxic components can inhibit important functions in the body. From the environmental dentistry’s and biological dentistry’s point of view, the removal of amalgam fillings is therefore highly recommended.

In case of a necessary amalgam removal (such as in the case of leaky fillings) it can happen, that these fillings are simply drilled out without proper protective measures. Thus, toxic mercury components develop and get into the body. After amalgam removal, patients often complain about fatigue or joint or muscle pain. Therefore, biological dentistry pays strict attention to the professional removal of amalgam fillings.

Biological dentistry strives for a consistently metal-free dentistry. First improvements in the general condition of the patients can often already be observed immediately after the metal removal treatment.
