What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the practice of repairing and restoring teeth and gums to achieve optimal heath and aesthetic results. Procedures may include crowns, bondings, bridges, and implants, all of which are performed in the comfort of the dentist office with every care taken to ensure the very best outcomes.
There are many benefits to restorative dentistry, including, but not limited to, helping you achieve a perfect smile. Restorative dentistry helps lend much-needed support to the structures of the mouth, promoting alignment and making it easier to maintain proper oral health habits.
Why holistic dentistry for restorative needs?
As a holistic dentist, Dr. Barreto is dedicated to treating the whole patient. Holistic restorative practices enable him to address not just direct issues of the teeth and gums but the root causes of those issues, which often originate in other places in the body. Seemingly unrelated behaviors and conditions can have a large impact on the health of the mouth, so it is critical that any restorative practice appreciates these interconnected relationships and treats them all at the same time.
What do holistic dentists use for fillings?
Dr. Barreto is an organic dentist, meaning he will not use any materials in fillings that could harm the body. Traditional fillings contain toxic substances that can seep into the blood stream and damage the central nervous system and immune system. For example, amalgam, a popular filling material that contains more that 50% mercury, which can be distributed into the blood during routine cleanings and other procedures. In holistic dentistry, safe composite resins are used in place of these toxic materials, achieving the same results with significantly less risk to the patient.
What makes Dr. Hank Barreto the best organic dentist in Miami?
Dr. Barreto believes that “holistic” and “organic” are more than just dentistry buzzwords. In his twenty plus years of practice, he has pioneered what it means to practice homeopathic, organic dentistry, with innovative techniques that are always patient-focused. Each patient who walks through the door is treated as an individual with unique needs and goals, and Dr. Barreto works hard to ensure that those needs are met without the potential risks and dangers of traditional dentistry practices.
