How do you treat sleep apnea?
We happily offer home sleep apnea tests with equipment that is approved by most medical insurances. This is to measure your breathing and blood oxygen level. We may also measure your heart rate or other aspects of your body. This is often more accurate and comfortable for patients than going to a sleep center for testing.
What is biological dentistry?
We offer biologically compatible dentistry. This type of care means we only use safe, natural materials and procedures in our office. Dr. Storey evaluates your overall, long-term health as part of your treatment care. We also refrain from substances that are toxic to the body, such as mercury in fillings and use a laser in our root canal therapy. We also recommend Xylitol for stronger teeth and cavity prevention rather than fluoride.
How are the materials and procedures different at our office?
The materials and procedures used at our practice have been tested and proven to not interfere with a patient’s biomeridians.
Are metal fillings really dangerous?
Because metal expands and contracts with fluctuating temperatures, metal fillings also do. This means decay can grow in the spaces surrounding the filling. It has also been shown that over time, metal fillings have cracked teeth and leaked toxins as they break down. For this reason, we do not use any metals at our practice and offer zirconia dental implants as an alternative to titanium.
Are there advantages to zirconia or metal-free dental implants?
Since 2004, implants made with zirconia have shown no adverse effects. In fact, it has been demonstrated to not interfere with the body’s biomeridians.
