What Is Dr. Dragos’ Holistic Approach?

Focus on Prevention, Not Invasion

A beautiful smile captivates others. But maintaining a strong foundation of healthy teeth is essential in order to keep your smile shining.

As we age, the state of our oral health determines our ability to chew, bite, smile, and more. Dr. Dragos and his dedicated staff have always advocated a combination of education and preventive, routine oral health habits before an invasive procedure is considered. Dr. Dragos believes that his approach to oral health not only prevents tooth decay but also promotes better overall health and wellness.

When you visit with Dr. Dragos, he will provide you with preventative strategies to reduce or eliminate oral health concerns that are individually tailored to your needs.

High Quality Cosmetic Material

Dr. Dragos avoids using traditional amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, which can be highly toxic to the human body. If the mercury leaks from your amalgam fillings, it can wreak havoc on your health.

If you currently have an amalgam filling, please feel free to call our office for a free consultation to discuss your removal options.

Dr. Dragos offers many alternative tooth restoration materials that are cosmetically enhancing and biocompatible. With Dr. Dragos, there are a wide range of services including composite fillings, porcelain crowns, and dental implants, depending on your situation and needs.

Our staff always uses the highest quality material and best practice techniques on all procedures. In order to ensure your teeth remain healthy after your dental visit, Dr. Dragos uses the finest laboratories in New York for all cosmetic and general dentistry services.

Dr. Dragos and our staff always use proper safety protocol when disposing of amalgam fillings. 

Connecting the Mouth to the Body        

There is an integral relationship between oral health and general health.

Practicing good oral health is very important because oral health habits become evident in our daily lives. By incorporating a holistic outlook to treatment planning, you can be assured that your overall and oral health is our number one priority.

Did you know?

Did you know sugar (sucrose) is the required substrate to cause tooth decay? Excessive sugar intake is also the suspected culprit behind many chronic health diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more.
