Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but what good is beauty if the materials that go into making the smile do not function harmoniously with it? Dr. William B. Langston III and his team are proud to offer holistic dentistry near Forney. Our practice focuses on using biocompatible materials and treatment techniques that not only benefit the mouth, but that also support whole-body health. Dr. Langston possesses an in-depth understanding of the various ways in which the body and mouth are connected, and he knows that dental health can have a profound impact on overall well-being. We believe that no one should have to deal with chronic pain, and that your dental care has the potential to positively affect your quality of life. Whether you need tooth restorations, preventive care, or dedicated sleep apnea therapy, our team is ready to help.
When we say that we use biocompatible materials for restorative services, what do we mean? Biocompatible materials are materials that work well within the human body, preventing problems that can arise as a result of using non-compatible materials. A foremost example of a biocompatible material is composite resin, which is a popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Silver amalgam fillings do not work well with the teeth. They commonly lead to problems several years after placement. Mercury-free dentistry does not cause such issues. This makes composite resin fillings a more healthful option for treating cavities.
Though we often take them for granted, jaw joints are a vital part of both oral and overall health. Also called temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, these precious joints are located directly in front of each ear. They are controlled by the muscles in your jaw, and even a seemingly minor misalignment or imbalance in this system can contribute to headaches, teeth grinding or clenching, shoulder and neck pain, and other health complications. As a respected leader in the field of joint disorder study and treatment, your dentist near Forney uses effective, conservative therapies, including functional orthodontics, to correct malocclusion (a bad bite) and restore balance to a the teeth, joints, and jaw muscles. He also provides TMJ Therapy, a tried and true solution for chronic jaw discomfort.
Dr. Langston is focused on keeping both his patients and team members safe. That is why he has invested in multiple advanced technologies that contribute to a healthful office environment. For example, we use UV light sanitization, which sanitizes up to 1,200 square feet without the use of any potentially harmful chemicals. We have also added extraoral suction devices, which stop up to 99.97% of germs and viruses from spreading throughout the office during routine care. Last but certainly not least, we have adopted electrostatic disinfection by bringing the Victory electrostatic sprayer into our practice. This remarkable device makes cleaning after every patient and deep cleaning at the end of each day as easy and thorough as possible.
