In recent years there has been a growing concern for the potential health hazards caused by dental materials which include toxic compounds, most notable the use of silver amalgam fillings which contain mercury. At Landmark Dental Group, we provide biocompatible dentistry to avoid using harmful materials in your treatments so that we can provide care that will promote your immediate and long-term oral health. Our goal is to improve your oral and overall health and wellbeing. We invite you to contact us at 808-946-6326 to learn more about biocompatible dentistry in Honolulu, Hawaii, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Christopher Chow.
Also known as biological or holistic dentistry, biocompatible dentistry emphasizes an approach to dental care that considers your dental health in the context of your overall health. Our dentists and team have chosen to use materials that are safe for your body and which will work with your body to promote better health. Part of this commitment to you and your health includes materials testing, through the Clifford Consulting and Research Lab. Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing helps to screen potentially unsafe materials so that we can choose the best type of materials for your treatments.
