Go figure, along the way, the world of health realized what we have known all along - that the head is connected to the rest of the body! As time goes on, more and more research is showing that a healthy mouth drastically reduces a person’s chances of developing other serious diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and even dementia. The mouth is the main portal of entry into the rest of the body, and bleeding gums are the easiest way for bacteria to enter your blood’s circulatory system. This portal of entry is how bacteria can cause potentially life-threatening changes to our health. We put this knowledge into practice with all of our patients, at every appointment. Our philosophy is that it’s much easier to smile when your body is healthy, and we’re able to help with that using our comprehensive dental care.
It is extremely frustrating to find comfort at a dental office, only to be referred to another doctor when you need something special! At Ellicott City Smiles, we’re happy to say that we’re able to handle almost any treatment you might need, in our office, with our doctors and clinical staff. From basic checkups and cleanings to more advanced services like dental implants, sleep apnea therapy, and oral surgery, you can trust that we’ll always have exactly what you need.
Since 1995, Dr. Blum has been providing Mercury-Free Dentistry! Traditional dental materials are often made of metal and include the well-known neurotoxic substance, mercury. At our office, we practice the safe removal of mercury, and we restore your healthy smile using more natural-looking alternatives that are both metal and mercury-free. This will give you better results, while also protecting your overall health. Using composite resin and all-ceramic restorations, we can seamlessly repair your smile so it looks like nothing ever happened to it in the first place.
The way we look at things is that we don’t just treat teeth here, we treat people!
Your comfort and safety will always be our number one priority. We will do everything we can to ensure that you enjoy stress-free dental visits. If you have any questions or concerns related to an upcoming appointment, please let us know, and we’ll make sure that your dental experience is both comfortable and pleasant.
