Why isn’t it common knowledge that many diseases are linked to oral health?
Your smile can be enhanced with meticulous cosmetic care using natural-looking non toxic and durable materials. When done correctly, a holistic smile makeover that takes into account your structure and your bite can have a dramatic effect on your overall sense of well-being as well as how you appear to the world.
Parents have asked me about non toxic braces over the years. A material commonly used in brackets and wires is nickel, which is listed as a cancer causing metal in California’s Prop 65 list of toxic materials. It is now possible to do nickel free orthodontics, as well as BPA and monomer free appliances and resins. Good news for parents!
