What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry uses a practical, all-natural, eco-friendly approach to meeting your and your family’s dental needs. The practice specializes in a safe mercury amalgam removal technique (SMART) certified by dental experts, as mercury is a highly toxic, non-radioactive element found in some fillings.

Mercury poisoning can harm numerous body systems, including your digestive, respiratory, cardiac, urinary, and immune systems. Unfortunately, silver amalgam fillings consist of 50% mercury, and when inhaled, mercury can enter your bloodstream. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) notes that silver dental fillings add more mercury to the body than all other sources of mercury combined. That’s why the Urbandale Smiles specialists don’t use (and remove as needed) such fillings.

What is SMART?

SMART is a technique in which your dentist gently, effectively, and safely removes fillings containing mercury from your mouth. They are very careful when doing so to avoid exposing you to excessive amounts of mercury. 

Urbandale Smiles uses International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)-recommended procedures to ensure safe filling removal without negative outcomes.
