Composite fillings free CA patients from many of the health worries of BPA and mercury

Composite fillings free from the health hazards of BPA and mercury

There was a time when your only real choice for restoration of tooth decay was a “silver” amalgam filling. Amalgam contains mercury, a known neurotoxin. Our composite resin fillings are the most biologically compatible material, with the least amount of BPA. They blend beautifully with your teeth, and are strong and durable. Sacramento Natural Dentistry is pleased to provide composite fillings that free patients in the Citrus Heights, CA area of many of the health concerns associated with BPA and mercury.

What’s the worry with BPA? 

Bisphenol A is a chemical that hardens plastics. It has been used in the manufacture of food and beverage containers for more than 40 years. However, recent evidence indicates that BPA can affect brain function, behavior, and development of the prostate gland by mimicking natural hormones. Unborn babies, infants, and young children are at highest risk.

Composite fillings 

Composite fillings are a mixture of tooth-colored plastic combined with finely ground glass for a light-reflective quality similar to tooth enamel. Composite fillings are used to repair tooth decay, without an obvious restoration that mars the smile. Some composite filling materials contain significant amounts of BPA. This is a concern for any health-conscious patient, especially for women who might become pregnant, and for parents of small children who are more cavity-prone than adults.

Sacramento Natural Dentistry uses a composite filling material with the lowest trace amount of BPA. It looks completely natural, with a range of shades and opacities available, making it ideal for anterior restorations. It also has outstanding strength for fillings in molars that are subjected to a great deal of bite force. These fillings resist wear and breakage, and retain a polished appearance.

Composite fillings are just one example of how your oral health and whole-body wellness is in good hands at Sacramento Natural Dentistry in Citrus Heights, CA. New patients are welcome – call (916) 823-8585 to schedule an appointment.

I want to give a recommendation for a natural dentist to anyone seeking a holistic leaning dentist, or any dentistry at all for that matter. I had a dental emergency due to several cavities that ended up being put on hold because of the virus shutdown. Living in Tahoe, the options of which dentists I had to choose from was short, and all of them were closed still. Over the last month I wound up with severe tooth pain from the bacteria in the cavities that very nearly became systemic. Two days ago I searched google for a natural dentist in Sacramento and the first one that was open and actually answered their phone was the good people at Sacramento Natural Dentistry. I explained to them my predicament and they got me an appointment yesterday at two o'clock. (Next day appointment after being closed for two months!) After taking x-rays and seeing the severity of the condition, I was offered a choice in treatment options. Yes you heard that right, a choice as to which procedures best fit my life situation. After a conversation about my options, some lidocaine was administered and 3 cavities were filled with precision and amazing efficiency followed by an extraction of a tooth that we determined was beyond being worth saving. The staff was helpful and kind and treated me with respect. The dentist who performed the procedure, Dr. Darryl Azouz who has twenty two years experience in dentistry, was patient and attentive, professional and very personable. I immediately noticed his authenticity and genuine care for others. Throughout the procedure we conversed and I really must say that overall it was the most pleasant time I've ever had in a dentists chair. Any of you out there who are looking for good holistic dental care at a fair price as well as a heart based approach, I can tell you that he and his team were well worth my drive from Tahoe for a visit. I am grateful to have found them and will return for future dental work without hesitation. Keep safe and many blessings.

I love this office! Dr. Azouz is the best dentist my family has ever had. I have had nothing but positive experiences every time I have had anything done in this office. I have referred several friends and family and all have been so happy with Dr. Azouz. My kids now love going to the dentist and I appreciate how good Dr. Azouz and the staff are with them. This is an office you will not be disappointed in, and is great for all ages!
