A Biological Dentist Implements a More Natural Approach to Treatment
When it comes to repairing teeth, there have always been a number of options that dentists can use. Within our practice, we make sure to use materials that not only look and feel natural but that refrain from causing any harmful side effects in the body. Visiting a biological dentist can help you reduce the risk of dangerous systemic health issues caused by mercury and other materials containing metal.
Our Use of Biological Materials
We use materials that are:
- Focus on full body health
Over the past few years, concerns have been raised about the use of dental materials that have toxic compounds, the most common of which is the toxic metal mercury. Mercury is a major component of silver amalgam fillings, which are about 50 percent mercury. Mercury can easily vaporize at room temperature, and when inhaled, mercury vapor can find its way into the bloodstream causing a number of harmful side effects including problems to the immune, urinary, cardiac, respiratory and digestive systems.
Whether you have existing mercury fillings or are looking to restore your smile with a more natural alternative for the first time, biological dentist Dr. Max Teja can help you design a treatment which suits your needs.

For your safety, we offer a variety of alternative options for treatment that contain no toxic materials and are mercury-free, metal-free, and biocompatible.
