Biological and integrative care at the dentist in Manhattan and Brooklyn, NY
A biological dentist takes an integrative and holistic approach to your dental health. The dental team at TriBeCa Dental Associates focuses on safe, effective treatments and preventative care to nurture your body’s natural healing abilities and minimize each procedure’s impact on your body.
The link between your oral health and your body
Tooth decay, gum disease, and missing teeth are common oral health issues, but their effects reach far beyond your mouth. Bacteria and the toxins they create can travel through your bloodstream to your heart, brain, and other parts of your body. Issues with your bite and mouth can also cause snoring and sleep apnea, as well as digestive issues. Treating these issues promptly can improve your overall wellbeing and reduce your risk of developing chronic conditions.
Still, the way your dentist treats these issues can make a big difference. Some patients may have a reaction to metal fillings or crowns, or would prefer to have natural looking restorations in their mouths. Our practice focuses on removing infections and placing biocompatible restorations that can help your body recover faster and minimize the risk of a reaction so you can have a healthy, happy smile.
Integrative treatments with state-of-the-art technology
Our practice has invested in powerful technologies that can help us diagnose and treat issues with your oral health as soon as they develop, and in many cases, prevent them. We utilize Cone Beam CT scans to produce high-quality 3D images of your mouth and jaw in seconds so we can identify diseased tissues and decay quickly and avoid surprises during procedures. For patients who want to minimize their exposure to radiation, we can identify cavities in the earliest stages using CariVu.
Our practice’s focus on biological dentistry means we utilize a wide range of alternative therapies to approach infections and prevention. In addition to target fluoride therapy, we use DNA testing to identify pathogens in your mouth and target them with antimicrobial and antibiotic medications. Ozone therapy is another powerful tool to remove pathogenic bacteria while strengthening your teeth and boosting your body’s immune system. We provide same-day ceramic crowns, inlays, and onlays to minimize your trips to the dentist when you need advanced care.
