Why Yogis Will Love Holistic Dentistry http://www.assureasmile.com/miami-dentist-blog/why-yogis-will-love-holistic-dentistry/ Sat, 05 Feb 2011 11:22:36 +0000 http://www.assureasmile.com/miami-dentist-blog/?p=428 miami-dentist-why-yogis-will-love-holistic-dentistryYogis and holistic dentists have at least one thing in common. Each concentrates on the big picture at hand. For Yogis, this includes using stretches and breathing techniques to unveil the connection between the mental and the physical. In the same way, holistic dentistry seeks to connect oral conditions with the overall health of a patient’s body systems. Both practices seek to understand cause and effect relationships and recognize that the genuine change—be it mental or physical—requires more than mere reactionary quick fixes.

Dental Amalgam 101 http://www.assureasmile.com/miami-dentist-blog/dental-amalgam-101/ Wed, 26 Jan 2011 10:20:32 +0000 http://www.assureasmile.com/miami-dentist-blog/?p=406 Dental amalgam is the proper term to refer to the silver material that is used in dental procedures like fillings. This material is actually a combination of mercury and at least one other metal, like tin. Invented in France in the early 1800s, dental amalgam has remained a popular filling agent because of its strength. However, experts at the World Health Organization have made a clear assertion: Mercury from dental amalgam feeds more mercury into a person’s body system than any other source combined, prompting many to seek safe amalgam removal.
