An important philosophy saturates everything we do here at Dr. Sperbeck’s office. The understanding that health for the whole body is crucial for the health of individual areas of the body has been lost through developing technology and modernization of our society. We believe wholeheartedly that the only way your mouth can truly be healthy and beautiful is if the rest of your body is nourished and well. There is no use in trying to treat a certain bacteria infecting your mouth if the cause of the problem is in your stomach, for example. Many problems arising in the mouth have been linked to heart disease and unnecessary hormonal imbalances, yet dentists, time and time again, could not completely eliminate the problem in the mouth, because the root problem was not recognized.
We also believe that it is important to use biocompatible materials in our dentistry. The standard chemicals, medicines, tools, and substances used today are often detrimental in some way or another to good health and wholesomeness. We use the best materials available, meaning that they do not affect the promotion of good health, and they work harmoniously with the body’s natural strength and beauty.
