Annapolis Cosmetic Dentist Offering Holistic and Mercury-Free Dentistry
Annapolis, MD — Given the recent push towards ”greener” living and a more sustainable interaction with our environment, Dr. Yasaman Roland, a cosmetic dentist in Annapolis, has announced her practice offers services in holistic and mercury free dentistry. In an effort to help support the health and environmental concerns of her patients, Dr. Roland says she is committed to providing the most advanced treatments in mercury free dentistry as well as digital x-rays, laser therapy, and natural hygiene products. She says she hopes patients recognize her dedication to their comfort and safety through the conscious efforts she has implemented within her office.
Dr. Roland says one of the most important qualities to look for in a dentist is the pursuit of a holistic approach to treatment for their patients, such that every element of a patient’s dental experience reflects a commitment to overall health. At her Annapolis cosmetic dentistry practice, she focuses on a wide range of general and aesthetic procedures from smile rejuvenation and porcelain veneers to orthodontics and TMJ treatment. Dr. Roland’s treatments also include a unique focus on herbal teeth cleaning products, dye-free and gluten free polishing paste, and digital x-rays to help reduce radiation exposure for her patients. Through the use of innovative dental materials, she also says patients can help eliminate their exposure to harmful toxins such as mercury.
In the past, standard treatment for cavities and tooth decay involved the placement of dental fillings using amalgam, a shiny, metallic-looking material that contains the toxic substance mercury. Mercury, even in small amounts, has now been known to cause an increase in health risks and can be harmful to the environment when disposed of as waste from a dental practice. As the U.S. government officially calls for a phase down of dental mercury, Dr. Roland says she is proud to provide mercury free dentistry in Annapolis in the hopes of reducing danger to her patients as well as her practice’s footprint on the environment. With the development of strong composite and porcelain fillings, Dr. Roland says patients now have access to more health-conscious choices for the treatment of cavities and tooth decay. The tooth-colored fillings also offer cosmetic benefits since they blend in with the natural enamel of one’s teeth.
