- The Dubai-based clinic will assist patients with their oral and overall general health and well-being through education, awareness and preventative methods
- Will offer biocompatibility tests to ensure dental treatment does not have an adverse reaction on a patient’s general health or well-being
Those in search of an alternative to traditional dentistry are being empowered to try out biological dentistry thanks to the launch of the holistic approach at Dr Roze & Associates Dental Clinic.
Using a biological approach to dental care, the clinic will assist patients with their oral and overall general health and well-being through education, awareness and preventative methods as well as the implementation of healthy behaviours.
Dr David Roze, Founder and Oral Surgeon, Dr Roze & Associates Dental Clinic, said: “Not only have technological advances played an important role in dental care and treatment over recent years, but the emergence of biological dentistry has helped transform traditional forms of dentistry.
“A biological dentist is a dentist who practices dentistry while understanding that what happens to the teeth and gums may have an impact on the rest of the body. By making a patient orally healthy, we are positively influencing their general health and well-being.”
Scientific studies have shown that many chronic diseases are caused by dental problems. As a result, biological dentists believe prevention is the best cure – tooth decay can be cured or prevented with proper nutrition.
Biological dentists believe that placing metal and/or other foreign materials in the teeth and gums may have unintended consequences. That’s why many biological dentists offer biocompatibility tests to make sure that the filling, crown, root canal, or other restoration doesn’t cause an adverse reaction on the rest of the body.
One of the key aspects which defines a biological dentist is the rejection of the use of mercury-based, or amalgam fillings.
This is due to 50% of the mercury used to create these fillings can later being found stored in the liver, kidneys, intestines, central nervous system, thyroid and in the brain.
Biological dentists suggest the removal of these fillings and instead use metal-free restorations that do not contain mercury and are biocompatible with the body’s natural tissue.
Dr Roze, said: “Our clinic follows a strict Scandinavian protocol for amalgam removal. We use a rubber dam, oxygen mask, surgical suction, double masks and latex sheets that fit around the tooth to prevent any particles of the filling ending up in your mouth or stomach during the removal.
“This not only helps prevent the patient from inhaling any mercury, but also protects our dental team.”
Helping patients achieve a fully organic lifestyle, the clinic recommends a range of toothpastes that are cruelty-free and contain no artificial colours, flavouring or SLS. The products utilise the natural cleansing properties of herbs to mimic the function of traditional toothpaste. Their value isn’t limited to people who prefer organic products as a lifestyle choice: they’re for anyone who wishes to avoid exposure to fluoride and synthetic substances.
Dental lasers have allowed Dr Roze and his team to reduce the need for antibiotics and prescriptions of anti-inflammatory drugs, ultimately speeding up the healing process in a more natural way.
A dental laser is a focused and powerful light that can help reduce bacterial activity in a natural way. They can also promote the healing and obtain the haemostasis without sutures – depending on the wave length used.
Micro dentistry uses microscope-based technology to examine problems in a tooth, such as a cavity. This allows for magnification up to 40 times, compared to six times when using a traditional loop. The high-quality microscopic picture allows for ultra-precise work on each tooth, removing only what needs to be removed to retain as much healthy dental tissue as possible.
“What makes our clinic unique is our approach to the huge advancements the world has witnessed in dental care and treatment over recent years. We are very proud and excited to begin the practice of biological dentistry in Dubai, and we look forward to seeing our patients enjoy the results,” Dr Roze concluded.
