Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging/Health Through Awareness free webinar series presents Louis Trovato, DDS, NMD, FAGD, FICOI, FAACP, IBDM, AIAOMT. In this webinar he will shed some light on the burning question, “What is biologic dentistry and why do we need it?”
Too often a dentist may claim to be a holistic or “mercury-free” dentist, but he/she may have only taken a weekend course or read a book about biocompatible dentistry. Learning the true art of biocompatible dentistry requires much training and time. We continue to hear horror stories about well-meaning but untrained family dentists who remove silver fillings without the proper precautions – exposing both parties to high levels of mercury vapor. Even when the dentist claimed to be skilled in non-toxic biocompatible dentistry, we have found many were not adequately trained and demonstrated numerous unacceptable shortcomings such as:
- Improper, unsafe removal techniques
- Incorrect testing of biocompatible dental materials
- Improper dental restoration methods
- Lack of proper dental equipment such as rubber dams, room air filtration, nasal oxygen, etc.
