Our experienced dentist, Dr. Laura B. Ousley, is pleased to provide biological dentistry. Sometimes referred to as holistic dentistry, biological dentistry is a special approach to dental care. In biological dentistry, we provide all dental treatments with the understanding that your oral health is an integral component of your overall wellbeing. We are conscious of the fact that any procedure or treatment that is performed in your mouth has an impact on the total health of your body. We strive to provide dental care that has a minimal impact on your overall health and has no negative effects. For example, we do not use amalgam (silver) fillings at our dental office. Amalgam fillings are approximately 50% mercury, and research has shown that the mercury in amalgam fillings may be potentially toxic and unsafe for your body. We are a mercury-free dental office and we work hard to always provide you with the highest level of dental care that is beneficial to your overall wellbeing. To discover more about the benefits of biological and holistic dentistry in Oklahoma City and Guthrie, Oklahoma, we invite you to call or visit us today. Our friendly dental team is happy to answer your questions and schedule your next visit with Dr. Laura B. Ousley! Amalgam Removal Do you have any amalgam fillings? Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are created from a mixture of metals. This mixture is approximately 50% mercury, and research has indicated that amalgam fillings may be unsafe for your health. At the dental practice of Laura B. Ousley, DDS, we are committed to providing dentistry that is good for both your mouth and your total body health. We are a mercury-free office and we provide amalgam removal to improve the health of your smile and your body as a whole. Dr. Laura B. Ousley, our knowledgeable dentist, practices safe amalgam removal to ensure that you are exposed to as little mercury as possible. After your old amalgam filling has been removed, we will replace it with a composite filling. Composite fillings are created from a resin material that contains no mercury or other harmful materials. In addition, composite fillings are more aesthetic than amalgam fillings – while amalgam fillings are silver in color and can darken over time, composite dental fillings are designed to match the natural color of your teeth. If you have one or more amalgam fillings, we encourage you to contact us today to learn more about dental amalgam removal in Guthrie and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We are dedicated to improving your oral health!
