Experience The Benefits Of Holistic Dentistry
At Black Diamond Dentistry, we describe ourselves as a holistic dentist office. But what does that mean? Here’s what it means to us.
At the most basic level, we are interested in your overall health, not just your teeth. We can about you, not just your smile.
We still provide general service include dental cleanings and exams, gum disease treatment, and more. But we do so in a way that respects your needs and considers the impact those treatments can have on other aspects of your health.
To fully appreciate our approach, we encourage you to schedule your next dental appointment at our office in Black Diamond, WA. Call 360-284-7647 today.
Protect More Than Your Smile
The same harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease can cause other problems if they get into your bloodstream. Researchers have found the same bacteria that cause periodontal problems in the hearts of patients with cardiovascular disease.
We don’t want you to have any of those issues, so we want to do everything we can to keep you and your mouth as healthy as possible. Professional cleanings are how we remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your mouth. Dental exams help us identify problems early, so you can get treatment in the early stages and before bacteria can spread.
Our holistic approach is also why we prefer metal-free fillings for our patients. Composite fillings have the added benefit of matching the color of your natural teeth. They blend in with your smile, instead of becoming a distraction.
Care For Your Mental Health
For many people, just thinking about visiting the dentist is a cause of anxiety . Dr. Yancy Sipes and the rest of our team understands this, which is why we have incorporated comfort items to make your dental care easier to handle.
We use advanced technology, such as dental lasers, which allow us to perform treatments painlessly and efficiently. Our digital X-rays are better for you as well. These use just a fraction of the radiation of film X-rays, making them safer for everyone in the long run.
We also offer two kinds of dental sedation. Laughing gas is safe for patients of all ages, while oral sedation can help older patients with a wide variety of procedures. Both sedation options keep you relaxed and pain-free.
The most important thing may be our staff, however. We take time to get to know our patients. By building relationships with you and your loved ones, we can make changes to our approach. How we treat you can make a huge difference in your willingness to return for the preventive care you need to have a healthy smile for many years to come.
