We’ve been a mercury-free dental practice in Palmyra, Indiana, for over 25 years! This commitment keeps your smile free from potentially harmful mercury, helping preserve your oral health for a lifetime.
There are many reasons why we’ve opted for composite, or resin, fillings over metal. In addition to being better for your overall health, because they are adhesive retained, no healthy tooth must be removed to get them to hold! This is very exciting for dentists who wish to preserve as much natural tooth as possible. We are committed to preserving as much of the original tooth as possible and providing you with the highest quality, longest-lasting solution.
Sartini Dentistry is committed to providing the very best in dental care because we understand the deep connection that your oral health has with your overall well-being. Health-based dentistry emphasizes an approach to dental care that considers your dental health in the context of your overall health and well-being. Also known as biological dentistry, biocompatible dentistry or alternative dentistry, it focuses on promoting your overall health and wellness.
Periodontal Disease, Heart Disease and Stroke
Heart disease and stroke have also been linked to periodontal disease. There are several ways in which these conditions are linked. The bacteria that cause gum disease may attach themselves to coronary arteries when they enter the bloodstream. This contributes to blood clot formation and narrows the arteries, which in turn can lead to a heart attack. The inflammation caused by gum disease can also cause plaque buildup, swelling the arteries and worsening pre-existing heart conditions.
