Biological Dentistry or Bio-Compatible Dentistry is a non-toxic and healthy approach to dentistry that not only deals with safe oral care but also on how dentistry can play a vital role in your body's overall health. Dentists who abide by this alternate approach to dentistry are known as Biological Dentists.
Biological Dentists follow a more natural way to treatment rather than the conventional way. They avoid the use of amalgam in dental fillings and focuses on non-surgical methods for treating oral diseases. They do not recommend root canal treatments as it adversely effects the health of the patient due to bacterial outflow in the bloodstream.
In general they use non-toxic, bio-compatible restorative materials and conduct a bio-compatible test on these materials before any treatment can begin. Therefore the patient is aware of what is best for their body.
