Dental Fillings

Safe, Holistic & Mercury Free Approach

The effect of a holistic dentist completing all fillings using composite, tooth-colored materials and a whole body wellness approachAs a holistic dentist, Dr. Siddall is passionate about using mercury free restorations in our office near Traverse City. Studies have shown that many people are sensitive to the materials contained inside amalgam fillings – including mercury. Instead, Dr. Siddall completes all fillings using composite, tooth-colored materials and a whole body wellness approach.

Composite (white) fillings have many added benefits in addition to being free of mercury. They also have characteristics that make them:

  • Smaller, Less Invasive
  • More Aesthetically Pleasing
  • Easy to Bond Directly to Tooth Enamel

Drill-Free Option

Is it possible to perform a dental filling without a drill? Yes! With dental lasers, Dr. Siddall is able to offer drill-free fillings in many cases.

Safe Removal of Mercury from Your Teeth

Removal of mercury fillings using isolation techniques that prevent the mercury vapors from entering back into the body, the air, or the water supplyAre you looking for a holistic dentist in Traverse City? Our Lake Leelanau holistic dental practice offers amalgam removal techniques approved by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. Although many dentists can remove amalgam fillings, very few use this environmentally safe method.

The procedure involves using isolation techniques that prevent the mercury vapors from entering back into your body, the air, or our water supply. In fact, Dr. Siddall uses specialized air filtration devices and oxygen during each amalgam removal treatment. Why is this important? Because the bulk of mercury is released at the time a filling is placed, and the time when a filling is removed.

We invite you to consider our holistic dentist office near Traverse City for your family’s mercury free dental treatment.

We also offer Dental Crowns to restore severely decayed or fractured teeth.
