Mercury Free (Amalgam Silver Filling Free), Mercury Safe, Holistic, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
Dr. Ayman Zraiqat's "Mercury Safe Dentist" office is located in Santa Ana, CA. He is a holistic, mercury free (amalgam/silver filling free) and mercury safe dentist and he is dedicated to practicing safe and healthy dentistry. His mission is to treat his patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with his patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. He also fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
Safe Mercury Amalgam/Silver Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Zraiqat is aware that mercury vapor, dental infections, and TMJ (bite) problems can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of this concern, our office focuses on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way. For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.
To accomplish this, we utilize removal protocols for safely removing amalgam fillings based on the recommendations of the New Directions Dentistry (NDD) which has set the standard for practicing mercury safe dentistry.
Dr. Zraiqat has completed the NDD course, and received his Certification, in How to Make Your Practice Mercury Safe - Minimizing Occupational Exposure to Mercury in the Dental Office. This is the only course of its kind offered to dentists and qualifies him to remove mercury amalgam fillings safely, protecting himself, his staff, his patients, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury vapor at the dental office. For more information about why we use safe removal protocols and an explanation of what they are, Click Here.
The IAOMT has developed rigorous standards for safely removing mercury amalgam dental fillings by reducing the unnecessary and excessive exposure to mercury released from these fillings. The IAOMT's recommendations are known as the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
At this time, Dr. Zraiqat is one of a small number of IAOMT members who qualifies as a SMART Certified IAOMT dentist. With the SMART designation you can be confident that he is fully qualified to safely remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings.
Holistic/Biological Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Dr. Zraiqat also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, technology, and experience with a deep concern for his patients' emotional well-being and comfort.
Whole Body Dental Philosophy
This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of biocompatible dental materials whenever possible. He also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist him in his efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. His Health-Centered - Patient First approach to holistic dentistry means that he treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.
Dr. Zraiqat is a founding member of the American Academy of Ozonotherapy and has had extensive training in ozone therapy. Ozone Therapy in dentistry has a number of uses to support traditional dental treatment. These include disinfecting the bacteria that causes tooth decay, support for periodontal treatment and as a support treatment to help disinfect root canals. This effective, non-toxic, non-invasive treatment has been shown to be effective in the right situation. Please ask us if this therapy is right for you.
Dr. Zraigat also practices Biomimetic dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry, a type of tooth-conserving dentistry, treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. In dental practices around the world, Biomimetic Dentistry has practically eliminated cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canal treatment. Patients are happier compared to conventional treatment. For more information please Click Here. (www.academyofbiomimeticdent.org)
Dr. Zraiqat believes that continuing education is a powerful tool that allows him to give you and your family the best, state-of-the-art dental care.
