Lake Leelanau Dental FAQ's
What is a holistic dentist?
A holistic dentist is a dental provider who works to achieve total body wellness. Our dentists implement dental services that are free of toxins, improve your oral health, and benefit your overall quality of life. Special attention is given to things like mercury fillings and fluoride. Our Lake Leelanau office is one of the very few holistic dentist practices in the Traverse City, MI area.
Do you offer mercury filling removal?
Yes. Our mercury filling removal services use methods approved by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. We implement specialized protocol including a rubber dam, oxygen, and air filtration to safely gather all of the released mercury vapors and particles during amalgam fillings removal.
What types of sedation options are available in your office?
We offer both nitrous oxide and oral sedation dentistry. Our patients can request nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) during any dental appointment, including fillings. Oral sedation is ideal for people who want to feel like they are napping through their treatment.
Is sedation dentistry safe?
Our sedation options are extremely safe. Nitrous oxide sedation is very mild, and most people drive themselves home after their procedure. Oral sedation is a bit heavier, but patients are still partially conscious (you will need to have someone drive you home.) The effects wear off after just a few hours.
What are dermal fillers used for?
Dermal fillers and Botox have many valuable uses. We use Botox for managing conditions like TMJ disorder, chronic clenching, facial aesthetics, and smile makeovers. Dr. Siddall is also a member of the Academy of Facial Aesthetics.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are a great way to permanently replace your missing teeth. They can support dental crowns, bridges and even dentures! With modern advancements in dental implants, more people are candidates for the treatment than ever before. Schedule your consultation with your holistic dentist to find out if implants are right for you.
What are same-day dental crowns?
Same-day dental crowns are made using CEREC technology. CEREC creates a customized restoration like a crown, inlay, onlay or veneer while you wait. Instead of making two trips to our office, everything can be finished in one visit!
What are dental lasers used for?
Dental lasers have a number of uses, especially when it comes to non-surgical periodontal therapy and drill-free fillings. Lasers can do everything from detecting cavities to treating cold sores with little to no discomfort.
Do you offer orthodontic treatments?
We offer adult braces, and interceptive orthodontics for children. Our options for orthodontic treatment (including clear braces) can help you smile with more confidence and improved oral health.
What is full mouth rehabilitation?
Full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation involves restoring and replacing all of your missing and damaged teeth. We offer most rehab treatments in one day. More extensive cases can be completed in just two visits. Call us to schedule a complimentary evaluation.
Can I see you for sleep apnea treatments?
Yes. We can order a sleep study or create a custom-fit oral appliance to help patients manage sleep apnea and prevent snoring.
