Kevin M. Christ, DMD ~ Biocompatible and Safe Dentistry
As dental technology improves, the available options for tooth restoration increases. Dr. Christ strives to provide dental restorations that simulate the natural tooth in both appearance and function as much as possible while avoiding any possible human side effects.
Most recently, toxic compounds used in dental restorations, such as mercury, have become a main concern and focus of Dr. Christ. Mercury is one of the most toxic metals in the environment and has been a key element of silver amalgam fillings.
In addition to the concerns of whether a restoration is compatible or not, Dr. Christ has to take into consideration other factors such as: the size of the area needing repair, the biting surface involved and the tooth’s functionality. Other important factors considered include aesthetic appearance, strength and durability. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with a safe, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing restoration.
Please discuss options with Dr. Christ, as your health is his primary focus. Dr. Christ is also a friend of the environment, as he strives to provide sustainable, healthy and environmentally conscientious solutions and exercises decision-making and management of his practice towards this goal.
