Metal Free Dentistry

Description
Transcript

Dr. Mark Caggiano reflects on the time when he entered the field of dentistry in Seattle and how at that time, all dental treatments involved the usage of metals. As per Dr. Caggiano, metals tend to irritate the tissue and cause chronic inflammation. For that very reason, he only uses porcelain body materials when restoring people’s mouth.

Dr. Mark Caggiano, D.D.S
One of the things as a dentist that I learned from an early age is that we are constantly producing things for patients and you know when I got into dentistry our products were not very good. Most of everything that we did contained metal. In my experience with dentistry and the mouth and the overall health of people is anytime you are putting metal around something, most metals you tend to irritate the tissue and you tend to cause more trouble than not. Well about 15 years or so ago, we were able to use just strictly all porcelain materials. And when we restore patients’ mouth nowadays we don’t use any metals. The advantage of that is number one; you get a beautifully aesthetic restoration or material. But the number two is the overall health of the mouth benefits because you don’t have chronic inflammation. A lot of time you see people smile and they have like these blue and black lines above their teeth. There’s none of that. That’s chronic irritation and inflammation. Our porcelain body materials have none of that. We use that in the front and the back, to restore and fix people’s mouth.

For over 25 years, Dr. Mark Caggiano, DDS has provided cosmetic and restorative dentistry in a comfortable, professional environment. Dr. Caggiano received a degree in Biology and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The University of Southern California. He has had extensive post-graduate training and is a member of numerous professional organizations including The American Dental Association and The International Dental Implant Association. Dr. Caggiano makes dental treatment relaxed and comfortable for patients while enhancing their oral health and beautifying their smiles.
