Eco-Friendly Dental Care
Next to digitization, eco-friendliness is a major part of most advanced technologies, including those designed specifically for dental health care. For instance, digital X-rays and imaging not only produce clear, immediate imaging results, but also emit significantly less radiation and use less energy than traditional X-rays. The software that runs the imaging takes a step further in helping us create a completely paperless office. In addition, we’ve also incorporated several other green techniques, including mercury-free restorations that reduce contact with, and eliminate the need to dispose of, the hazardous material. For instance, instead of mercury-laced metal fillings, we treat cavities using biocompatible, custom-designed composite resin. Unlike metal, the resin consists only of finely ground acrylic and quartz-like particles, which are safe for patients of all ages and can blend in naturally with healthy tooth structure.
