Holistically & Biologically Inclined Dentistry in 2022
Hello, this is Dr. Jonathan J. Bechtel, DDS and I am super excited about continuing to provide holistically and biologically inclined dentistry in 2022. I’m fully dedicated to the integrated health and wellness of the whole body and helping my patients with their health and wellness goals. I feel blessed to be practicing holistically and biologically inclined Dentistry that is health-focused and patient-centered. I continue to be focused on providing comprehensive dental care using minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. I believe minimally invasive holistic & biologic dentistry helps my patients live longer, healthier, happier lives. I believe in treating you as a whole person and each visit is filled with my personal and undivided attention.
What Is Holistically and Biologically Inclined Dentistry?
Holistically and biologically inclined, in the care that I offer, is defined as: Holistic because I believe that the health of the mouth and our overall health cannot be separated. Biologic because I continually strive to find new and better ways to help individuals get and stay healthy, always seeking materials and techniques that are as biocompatible as possible while at the same time providing for durability, longevity, and conservatism.
The Impact of Holistic Dentistry on the Body
I have designed all my treatments to support your overall wellness, with incredible benefits beyond your oral health, including:
• Treating infections and diseases that can spread from the mouth to other systems or organs
• Providing conservative treatments that are minimally invasive
• Preventing mercury exposure by providing mercury-free filling services
• Reducing exposure to irritants and potential allergens found in traditional dentistry
• Diagnosing and providing preventative services for chronic conditions that impact the gums and teeth
Mercury Safe Dentistry
My practice is a dedicated mercury-free dentistry that offers mercury-safe removal services. That means that we do not place any mercury fillings and are certified to safely remove mercury fillings for patients throughout the Lansing area.
IAOMT Certification and Training: I am SMART certified from the IAOMT, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. The SMART certification entails a successfully completed training course in regards to proper mercury removal and understanding of the harmful, damaging effects of mercury use in dentistry.
Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry
I am fully committed to providing restorative dental services that uphold our holistic wellness standards. My team and I are honored to offer a biologic alternative to conventional crowns with minimally invasive restorations.
Biomimetic restoration utilizes porcelain inlays and onlays as well as stress-reduced direct composite restorations that work together in restoring the biomechanics of damaged teeth.
Traditional restorative treatments ranging from metal crowns to gold crowns, amalgam fillings, and porcelain-fused crowns don’t offer the benefit of being minimally conservative.
Dental Ozone Therapy
At my Lansing, MI dental practice, Dental Ozone Therapy is incorporated into all of my dental procedures, including treating gum disease, restorative dentistry, and oral surgery to enhance our treatments for the benefit of our patients’ oral health. I provide my patients with a consultation on Dental Ozone Therapy to help discover whether adding ozone therapy to your dental health care would be beneficial.
I am continually experiencing an increased demand from patients requesting Dental Ozone Therapy because its holistic, conservative, painless, minimally invasive, and can dramatically decrease healing time.
Dental Ozone Therapy is a powerful weapon against bacteria. This minimally invasive and conservative approach to oral care is fast becoming one of the most effective treatment options used in holistic dentistry today.
