Experience You Can Trust
Dr. McBride understands that mercury can affect your oral health, your well-being, and your quality of life. He and his team have helped patients live healthier lives—mercury free. They have experience with the particular protocols and procedures necessary to safely remove mercury fillings. Besides being "Mercury Free," meaning that mercury is not used, The Dental Wellness Center is "Mercury Safe," meaning that there are protocols in place to safely remove them.
The hygienist will assess the state of their gum health, perhaps with the Halometer to legitimize the problem. It is usually found that the person has unhealthy gums, and teeth cleanings and home care instructions are given. This is borne out by American Dental Association statistics indicate that 85 - 90 percent of all adults will have some form of gum disease during their lifetime.
In our office, the source of the problem is identified for each patient by assessing the types and numbers of oral bacteria. Our hygienist has a scholastic background in microbiology and the use of the microscope. Appropriate regimens are prescribed for each patient based upon individual microscopic and periodontal assessments. Gum infection is eliminated or controlled, healthy gums are developed with an added benefit - the person now has sweet breath and knows how to keep it that way.
