At Claremont Dental Institute, we define holistic dentistry as “whole body dentistry”. When we treat your teeth and gums, we consider the impact it makes on your overall wellness and health. We take all aspects of your masticatory system and systemic health into consideration when maintaining and restoring your smile.
Our dental care team combines state-of-the-art dental science and advanced training with a deep concern for our patients’ emotional and spiritual wellness. This unique whole-body approach to dental care helps you enjoy optimal oral health.
Our gentle, holistic approach helps patients with dental anxiety feel more at ease when visiting the dentist. Our compassionate dental care team provides a nurturing environment where we focus on patient education and building positive relationships with our patients.
We offer biological dentistry options to patients of all ages in the Claremont area, including communities such as San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, La Verne, Rancho Cucamonga, and Upland, California.
A Holistic Approach To Oral Wellness
During your initial consultation with your dentist, we evaluate all aspects and functions of your entire chewing system. Your Claremont Dental Institute dentist analyzes the alignment of your bite and function of the jaw and screens for any signs of developing dental concerns or oral disease.
Based on our findings, as well as your personal goals, we help patients build treatment plans that are minimally invasive while providing optimal results.
Our holistic dentistry includes comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for TMJ, metal-free dental fillings, and 100% ceramic dental implants. We combine cutting-edge dental technology for more precise diagnostics that allow for less intrusive and more natural treatment options.
Our Claremont, CA dentist office offers 100% metal-free solutions for various dental concerns.
Our dentists offer ceramic dental implants for the replacement of missing teeth. Zirconia ceramic implants are highly durable and safe for patients with titanium allergy or who practice holistic lifestyles. Ceramic implants are fully biocompatible and support the long-term stability of the bite and overall oral health.
We also provide white dental fillings that are mercury-free. Mercury is a toxic substance found in old metal fillings linked to systemic health complications.
“Amazingly, 72% of those surveyed in the US did not know that silver fillings contain mercury and when they do find out, 92% of the respondents would have wanted to know about the possible mercury issues when the silver fillings were first placed. We can help you get rid of the toxins in your mouth with safe amalgam filing removal.”
—Dr. Steve Fountain
Your dentist may recommend the removal of old mercury dental fillings. We adhere to all protocols for safely removing mercury fillings from the Association of Mercury Safe Dentistry (IAMSD), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.
Once the mercury fillings are removed, your dentist will create a custom ceramic filling replacement. Ceramic fillings are color matched to the teeth for a seamless, highly aesthetic result. Ceramic fillings are durable and help to seal out future decay.
