The Importance of Biocompatible Dental Fillings


Biological dentistry is a modern and growing approach to oral health. It is about conservation, prevention, whole-body health, and biocompatibility. By using compatible materials, we are able to decrease inflammation and systemic reactions to ensure that your body is able to function with foreign filling materials inside your mouth. Traditional and conventional dentists continue to use some of the oldest methods and materials like mercury-containing amalgam fillings. Rest assured that your team at Pure Holistic Dental strives for the best care using the highest quality materials in your mouth. 

Risks of Using Non-Compatible Materials

We understand that these toxic fillings cause adverse effects throughout the whole body. That is why we choose to use biocompatible resin fillings based on the chemistry and level of toxins in the filling materials.

Since there are is a wide range of white filling materials that a dentist can use the level of toxicity and compatibility varies greatly. There are some brands of filling and bond materials that react very well to the body and others that can cause neurological issues over time. 

You might be thinking: Isn’t resin plastic? Doesn’t that contain another toxin, BPA, what about fluoride? Not here in our office! Our materials are BPA, metal, and fluoride-free!

What Biocompatible Brands or Materials are Used In Your Office? 

Some of the materials/brands we use include:

  • VOCO 
  • Admira Fusion 
  • Grandioso 
  • Porcelain/Ceramic
  • Zirconia

These metal-free materials decrease the likelihood of sensitivity and are often used to replace old mercury fillings. So why don’t more offices use these materials? The truth is that these quality materials are more expensive than other filling materials.
So when dental insurance chooses what materials to cover, they will choose the cheapest filling material like a mercury filling to fix your tooth.

Even among all the white filling materials we selectively choose the least toxic materials that do not contain fluoride or BPAs . You can trust that our doctors in Sugar Land will help you find the best materials. It should always be about quality, especially when it comes to your health and safety. 

By using compatible materials also helps us preserve more of your natural tooth structure. Our resin fillings don’t expand or contract, which means no effect on neighboring teeth or new cracks. With proper care and hygiene, our fillings are made to last and provide you peace of mind.
