Holistic/Biological Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Bressack also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, technology, and experience with a deep concern for his patients' emotional well-being and comfort. This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of biocompatible dental materials whenever possible.
We utilize safe amalgam removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, click here.
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Bressack is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, his office focuses on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way.
Composites were first used in the 1960's and have greatly developed since then. Before the 1980's, one of the main concerns about composite fillings was that they wear down and break. The composite fillings used today are placed using a bonding agent that adheres the filling to the tooth reinforcing them to withstand the pressure and grinding that the back teeth are subjected to. This process also spares tooth structure and helps prevent leakage which causes sensitivity and recurrent decay. Amalgam fillings are more prone to leakage and fracturing due to the constant expanding and contracting of the metal when having hot and cold food or liquids.

Composite fillings are made of micro particles of glass in a plastic resin. They do not contain any toxic heavy metals which eventually corrode. They are easily repairable as well.

It is possible for a person to be allergic to some composite materials if they have chemical sensitivities. Our office always tests these materials for compatibility before being placed in the mouth. We also make sure our composites are BPA free.
Dr. Bressack believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care. Each year he takes many hours of continuing education courses and he has advanced training in many areas of holistic and conventional dentistry.
