A Healthier Approach to Dentistry
Did you know there’s a whole new approach to dental care that takes the health of your entire body into account? Typically referred to as holistic, biological, or toxic-free dentistry, this approach focuses on keeping your mouth healthy to improve your overall wellbeing.
At Julien Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we’re proud to provide toxic-free dental care that prioritizes your safety and long-term health. Keep reading to learn about Dr. Sambataro and our team’s unique methods, as well as how you can benefit.
One of the biggest problems with traditional dental care is the routine use of silver amalgam fillings. In addition to not being the strongest material available, these fillings slowly leak mercury into your mouth that accumulates throughout the body over time.
Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive metal in existence, making it highly poisonous to ingest in any way. Unfortunately, hundreds of millions of Americans have received amalgam fillings and most of them aren’t even aware of the health risks.
Shockingly, some experts believe that up to 90% of Americans suffer from low-level mercury poisoning and amalgam fillings are the primary source of contamination. Mercury poisoning can lead to a wide range of symptoms including:
- Weakened immune system
- Illnesses ranging from chronic fatigue to cancer
- Neuromuscular effects
- Cognitive and motor dysfunction
- Memory loss
That’s why Dr. Sambataro never uses amalgam fillings at our practice. In some cases, he can also safely remove your old fillings if they pose a threat to your ongoing health.
No Root Canals
Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental treatments performed. It’s designed to remove bacteria from inside your tooth to help you avoid an extraction. While this may sound like a good idea, root canal treatment can actually result in negative consequences that may be even worse than losing your tooth.
After a root canal has been performed, bacteria can become trapped inside the tooth and are released into your bloodstream every time you bite down. To make matters even worse, these infected canals aren’t accessible to dental tools during checkups and you may not experience visible symptoms in the tooth. As a result, the problem will often remain undetected.
When you visit our practice, Dr. Sambataro will thoroughly examine your teeth and determine the best course of treatment that takes your long-term health and wellbeing into account.
A Different Approach to Gum Disease
According to some estimates, as much as 85% of adults in the U.S. suffer from gum disease in some form. While traditional dentists often perform invasive surgery to eliminate the infection, they only focus on treating the visible symptoms rather than the underlying issues. This can lead to recurring health problems and a frustrating amount of time spent at the dentist’s office.
As a holistic, biological dental practice, we focus on improving the health of your mouth to enhance your quality of life. Rather than just eliminating your infection, we want to prevent it from happening again in the future. By achieving optimal oral health, you can also reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other severe health problems that have been linked to gum disease.
Quick Facts About Toxic-Free Dentistry

- You can dramatically strengthen your immune system and add years to your life by eliminating gum disease and the more than 350 strains of bacteria it can breed
- Periodontal (gum) disease makes you one and a half times more likely to have a fatal heart attack, twice as likely to develop coronary artery disease, and three times as likely to suffer a stroke
- Periodontal disease has also been linked to respiratory disease, osteoporosis, premature and underweight births, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s (due to increased arterial inflammation and hardening)
- Innovative biological treatments and home care treatments have made it easier than ever to achieve and maintain excellent oral health for a lifetime
