Holistic Dentistry West San Jose
Holistic dentists are dentists who perform dentistry that is good for the body as well as the teeth and gums.
Your Oral Hygiene Can Affect Your Overall Health?
At Pries Dental Care, our San Jose Dentists are true believers that preventive dental care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall dental health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine teeth cleaning, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.
Mercury Free Dentistry
Pries Dental Care is a mercury free (amalgam/silver filling-free) and mercury safe dental practice and we are dedicated to the practice of whole person, wellness-based dentistry. Mercury is a toxin and even small amounts are too great a risk to the body and your overall health. While amalgam fillings last longer than composites, they put extreme pressure on the tooth and often cause weakening of the tooth — meaning that the filling may outlast the tooth it was placed in.
