Because Metal-Free is the Way to Be
What if we told you there was a way to have fillings free from harmful toxins such as mercury? What if we told you we have a minimally invasive way to help your little one overcome their cavities without a drill in sight?
That’s what you get when you see the SMART certified team of Dr. Lewis Yu and Dr. Grace Liu at All About Smiles for biological and holistic dental care in Wilmington.
What Does SMART Mean?
SMART officially stands for the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique. Our doctors obtained the certification to effectively use it to treat patients of all ages from the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Technology (IAOMT).
Your dental team at All About Smiles along with the IAOMT works hard to promote dentistry that’s safe and free from mercury along with all of the continuing advancements in biological dentistry. When we remove metal or amalgam fillings from your mouth, there’s a good chance that mercury vapors are ending up in the air and are inhaled directly into your lungs. You and our team could all be at risk.
This led the IAOMT to develop the SMART protocol to reduce the negative health effects that can accompany the removal of old, failing fillings. We have the proper ventilation, protective gear for you and our staff, high suction to quickly pick up particles prior to becoming airborne, and vitamin dosing before and after treatment.
Kids Get SMART Too!
We love being SMART about all the ways we provide biological and holistic dentistry in Wilmington, especially to our smallest smiles. When we’re talking about children’s oral health (we start seeing them as young as age one) SMART stands for Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment. This is just a long, drawn-out way of saying your kiddo has an advantage when it comes to fixing their cavities.
This fast, painless option for eliminating cavities uses silver compounds, a natural antimicrobial, and a BPA-free composite filling that will give them the functionality and durability they so deserve.
You won’t have to worry about:
– Annoying or scary drills
– Unnecessary or unwanted shots
– Anesthesia or sedation
Comfort and compassion is what we try to focus on, providing the area’s leading biological and holistic dentistry in Wilmington for families of all shapes and sizes.
