Dr. Robert Sexauer, Dr. Krystal Gillis, and their team have a common priority, and that is your wellbeing. Everything that we do here in our office is centered on your overall health, not just teeth. We take great care to use biocompatible materials and gentle, conservative techniques, with a focus on healing.
We do not use nickel, or base metals that are common allergens and raise other health concerns. For example, in some instances, an amalgam (mercury containing) filling may be an inexpensive, functional restoration, but we do not believe it is the healthiest choice. We only offer products, services, and materials that we believe in. Therefore, we primarily use porcelain and composite resin materials. On occasion, if metal is indicated, we only use high noble gold, which is extremely biocompatible. We also select our sealants and restorative resin materials carefully, choosing those with high quality.
Our prophy paste does not contain fluoride, and we do not recommend its use as a supplement. Although it does have therapeutic benefits, killing the bacteria that cause tooth decay, it has toxic effects when used systemically. Applied properly, it may be used topically, but we never advise ingesting it. We work with you to eliminate and prevent dental caries (tooth decay) in a safe and healthy way.
Periodontal health is also an important aspect of our practice, as it is vital for oral and overall health. Untreated periodontal disease can damage your jawbone, and cause eventual tooth loss. Additionally, many studies have found evidence linking periodontal disease to coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic degenerative diseases.
When you visit our office for dental exams, we do a bacterial culture test to determine exactly what microorganisms are living in your mouth, including below the gumline. This is an excellent diagnostic tool, which helps us determine how healthy, or unhealthy, your gums actually are. From there, we can design a personalized treatment plan, either curative or preventive.
When you visit our office, you can be rest assured that we will take good care of you. We take pride in providing high quality, personalized dental care for residents of Clinton, MO and beyond. Call us at (660) 885-6933 and schedule an appointment today.
