Deldar Dental’s Holistic Approach

Safer, modern, healthier

More people are looking to their healthcare providers for holistic healthcare. Their desires don’t stop with their general health either. Patients want a more holistic approach to dentistry. And we’re with them! We believe 100 percent in treating our Indianapolis, Carmel, and Noblesville patients in a whole-body manner. How do we do this?

How your Noblesville dentist provides a Holistic Approach to dentistry

Taking a holistic approach to dentistry often means going against the grain of conventional practices. At Deldar Dental—your Indianapolis, Carmel, and Noblesville dentist office—we don’t have a problem with that. Our number one focus is on the health and safety of our patients. There are 4 ways in which we currently treat our patients in a more holistic, healthful manner.

Amalgam-Free Environment

One of the first things to leave our office was amalgam fillings, also known as silver or metal fillings. With the research that’s come to light, we’re not sure why anyone would want to work with this material. Amalgam fillings are hazardous to our patients and to those of us who work here.

The mercury in amalgam fillings has been shown to slowly leak out of the filling material every time a person chews, clenches their jaw, or grinds their teeth. These mercury vapors then get into their bloodstream and can cause a lot of damage to the body.

In addition, those who work with amalgam fillings are constantly exposed to these vapors. The entire office becomes contaminated. Those who experience the effects of exposure don’t even have to be in the treatment room.

Instead of exposing our patients and the dental team to this toxic substance, Dr. Deldar has decided to eliminate amalgam.

BPA-Free Filling Materials

We use composite fillings instead of the mercury-laden amalgam fillings. This brought about another challenge, though, when it came to a holistic approach to dentistry. What about BPA? BPA, or bisphenol A, is a compound that mimics estrogen. This is one of the ingredients that are used in plastic containers and bottles.

Its negative effects are well-researched. The compound is known to contribute to psychological problems, like moodiness or aggressiveness. There are also concerns that it may be linked to certain types of cancers as well.
Our concern was that, even though we removed amalgam fillings, we would be exposing patients to BPA. Many composite filling materials contain this compound. Thankfully, more companies are coming on-board with the holistic approach to dentistry. The result: BPA-free filling materials.

We provide Laser Acupuncture to reduce the gag reflex

Another holistic service we’ve provided to our patients is laser acupuncture. This is like traditional acupuncture, except instead of using needles we use a laser.

This is a great option for patients who have a difficult time with their gag reflex. We get an amazing response with this method. Patient comfort is our #1 concern.

Conservative Dentistry Is Our Ultimate Goal

Our ultimate goal when serving our patients is to be conservative. We’re not going to recommend treatment because a patient “might” need it. First, Dr. Deldar makes absolutely sure a procedure is needed. Then, he determines how he can take care of the patient’s needs in the most conservative way possible.
That means that all of our restorative procedures are done in a minimally invasive way. We want you to keep as much of your natural dentition as possible. In Dr. Deldar’s own words: “What God gave you is best. Keep it!”
