Holistic Dentistry in Beachwood

Generations of doctors have known that oral health is the gateway to overall health, and that is something we hold very closely here at The Center for Advanced Dentistry. When you come to visit us, we want to take care of you as a whole being, not just a set of teeth. Your holistic dentist in Beachwood, Dr. Benjamin Hornstein, considers this during every consultation, exam, and procedure he performs every day. This approach shapes our practice, and in that spirit, we are able to offer you services you simply won’t find anywhere else that will make your smile and your body healthy.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

Traditionally, fillings were made of a material called amalgam. Like the name suggests, it is made of a combination of metals, including mercury. This causes many people pause because it is widely known that mercury is an extremely toxic substance, and would never want it in their mouth.

Because of this, we only use non-toxic, mercury-free fillings in Beachwood. Rather than using the same material for every patient, we go the extra step and perform biocompatibility testing to find out which material will work best. This helps people get their teeth repaired in a way that considers their entire body.

We Can Remove Your Amalgam Fillings

Of course, if you already have amalgam fillings, we are willing to safely remove them for you if this is in your best interest. Once again, we go the extra mile to ensure your overall health. Our process is very thorough in order to completely protect your wellbeing. After reviewing your medical and dental health history, we follow precautions while removing your amalgam fillings:

Each step is meticulously considered in order to put your health and safety first. This attention to detail is our trademark and can make all the different in both your experience and in your long-term results.

Allergy/Biocompatibility Testing

In dentistry 5000 different materials are available to dentists that are utilized for a multitude of different applications. Exposure to any of these materials can cause individuals sensitivity and possible allergies based on your unique immune system. We prefer to avoid this reaction by offering a third party genetic test that can determine specific sensitivities based on each person’s biochemistry. This way we can ensure we are using this safest materials possible for each specific person. Our office can provide you a test kit that can be used to determine your own specific plan. To complete the test, each person must submit a blood test that is sent to a lab in Colorado for evaluation. The test utilizes each person's own specific antibodies to ensure compatibility with the materials we will use to restore your teeth. This is another example of how we ensure the safety of each of our patients based on their own unique immune system.
