Taking good care of your teeth and gums doesn’t just result in better dental health, it results in better overall health. Our team wants your smile – and the rest of you – to look and feel great today and well into the future. So we take a long-term approach to your care with holistic dentistry in Chattanooga.
As part of our holistic approach, we:
- Focus on preventing decay and gum disease, two problems that affect not only your mouth but the rest of you too
- Use non-metal fillings to avoid exposure to mercury and safely remove amalgam fillings that contain mercury
- Shorten recovery time after oral surgery with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, a technique that uses your own blood to encourage your body to heal
- Promote a feeling of well-being with aromatherapy that not only smells good but improves your mood too

Safely Remove Your Amalgam Fillings
Amalgam (metal) fillings have been in widespread use for years, though recent research has created questions about the effects of long-term exposure to mercury found in metal fillings. The FDA has approved the use of mercury in fillings for adults – though it does note that “the developing neurological systems in fetuses and young children may be more sensitive to the neurotoxic effects of mercury vapor.”
Since research is far from conclusive, our dentists don’t use metal fillings. Instead, we repair cavities with composite fillings. Composite contains no mercury and offers aesthetic benefits as well. We match the color to your other teeth, so your filling blends in seamlessly with your smile.
In addition, our dentists have been trained in the protocols for safe removal of amalgam fillings. We also have all of the required equipment, including a powerful suction system. Enjoy peace of mind while updating your dental restorations!
PRP Therapy Helps Your Body Heal Following Dental Procedures
We want you to feel better as soon as possible after oral surgery. So we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance created from your own blood that enhances your body’s natural healing power. We’re the only dental practice in Chattanooga that uses this cutting-edge technology!
All we need from you is a small blood sample. We then use a centrifuge to separate the blood into plasma and other cells. When placed on your surgery site, this platelet-rich substance encourages tissue regeneration and speeds up healing.
Enjoy Comforts Before, During, & After Treatment
No matter which procedures you receive, our staff makes you comfortable before, during, and after your treatment. Enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks from the refreshment bar in our waiting room. Take advantage of amenities like pillows and iPads in our private care rooms. Freshen up with moist towelettes and all-natural lip balm following your treatment.
