What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry is based around the idea that the body should be kept as pure and intact as possible throughout a patient’s life. That’s why Dr. Silver provides minimally invasive care and biocompatible materials, such as air abrasion instead of traditional drills or ceramics instead of amalgam metals. We’re focused on doing as little as possible in order to help your smile and your quality of life last well into the future. To learn more, please visit our holistic dentistry page.

How often should I go to the dentist?

Our answer to this question depends on the specific patient and their needs. In most cases, Dr. Silver recommends two checkups and cleanings each year, or one each six months. These regular visits will give our team the chance to catch various concerns at their earliest stages and address them successfully, such as gum disease, cavities, or general tooth decay.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone (also known as O3) is enriched oxygen, and its presence in the mouth can help strengthen dental structure, reverse decay, battle against harmful infections, and bolster the effectiveness of your care in a minimally invasive fashion. You can learn about ozone therapy and its various benefits and uses here.

How should I replace my missing teeth?

Dr. Silver offers several options for tooth replacement. His top recommendation is dental implants or mini dental implants, which rebuild teeth from the root up and provide exceptional longevity, durability, and aesthetics. Other options include dentures and bridges. Our goal is to determine the option that best fits your specific needs and goals.

Why is my tooth hurting?

Dental pain can arise from a variety of services, many of which are very serious.
