The main focus of environmental dentistry lies on an intense dental treatment of chronically ill patients, as well as the use of individual and preventive treatment concepts for healthy patients. Its goal is to detect potential risks on the oral cavity and avoiding chronically inflammable diseases even outside the oral cavity. Therefore, intense support by your regular doctor is very important.
We dentist can barely avoid installing foreign material as filling into our patients bodies. In most cases those materials don’t cause any negative reactions from your body, as they are being intensively checked before the use.
Nevertheless, in the individual situation of a patient, any material can be a trigger for chronically inflammation, intolerances or allergies, as it forms several interactions with the organism..
On the other hand, more and more patient already suffer from chronically inflammable diseases. In those cases we have to focus on testing for material intolerance, inflammation or other reasons. Additional inflammation has to be avoided in order to not support or even fasten already existing diseases..
All of this has to be found out through toxicological, immunological and environmental dentistry knowledge and corresponding modern laboratory diagnostics.
