Green Dentistry is a holistic practice that offers our patients healthy general dentistry treatments to improve oral and overall health and wellness. We work to optimize your oral health along with your nutrition, diet and mental/physical wellbeing. Our practice has invested in the latest advancements in dental technology and features a spa-like and comfortable environment for all your advanced and general dentistry needs. Dr. Nammy Patel specializes in holistic care in every step of the dental process including making your smile more attractive, functional and healthy.
Green Dentistry upholds four core values: we aim for every patient to look their best, have full oral function, experience no pain and have dentistry that lasts for the long-term.
While we offer advanced dentistry from gum grafting to orthodontics, our practice is also your home for holistic general dentistry. Routine hygiene cleanings should be performed every six months and during these appointments, we will look for any other preventative dentistry needs you may have. Our general dentistry procedures include:
Our holistic dental exams are in a relaxing and spa-like environment to help you feel comfortable. We utilize advanced, digital technology to capture highly detailed images of your oral structure and will look for symptoms of gum disease or oral cancer. Detecting concerns early, we can preserve your oral health by addressing problems when they are most easily treated.
Our preventative general dentistry treatments include a thorough teeth and gum cleaning. We will remove plaque and tartar buildup and educate you on proper oral care, including proper brushing and flossing techniques, what kinds of toothbrushes are best, and how to remove stains from teeth.
A common holistic general dentistry procedure we perform is the replacement of metal amalgam fillings with healthy composite fillings. Dr. Patel is able to replace your old metal fillings or protect newly damaged areas with our composite fillings that are made of a resin and glass mixture and match the look of your natural teeth. This composite material is healthier for your mouth and body than older metal fillings.
When your teeth have been damaged but still have substantial natural structure, we can protect the damaged area with inlay and only general dentistry. Inlays lay within the cusps of the teeth, while onlays cover one or more cusps. They protect your teeth just as a dental crown would, but require less damage to your natural tooth structure. Dr. Patel always tries to provide the least invasive treatments in order to preserve your natural oral health.
Our holistic general dentistry treatments keep our patients in optimum dental and whole-body health. Our practice, Green Dentistry, is the first recognized green and LEED Certified dental practice in all of California. With our commitment to advanced technology and holistic wellbeing, we aim to provide high-quality care for each and every patient. When you visit Dr. Patel and our practice routinely for hygiene and general dentistry in San Francisco, CA, you can rest assured that we will keep you in optimal health and ensure serious concerns are not overlooked.
