Owen Allison - Susquehanna Dental Arts
Dr. Allison maintains a progressive full-service family dental practice in the Columbia shopping center. He is among a growing number of dentists who reject the notion that mercury-silver fillings are appropriate for use in their patients. For the last 20 years he has been on the forefront of the zero-mercury movement in dentistry, which is slowly taking hold in this country. Many other developed nations worldwide have banned mercury from use in dental restorations. Many patients come from a distance for their dental care. Some want the mercury-rich amalgam fillings removed safely and replaced with safer bonded materials. A good source of information about this subject can be found at www.IAOMT.org. Another of Dr. Allison's special interests is in the replacement of missing teeth (any number of them) with narrow body implants restored with crowns,bridges, or dentures. Contemporary dentistry; at it's heart, is concerned with improving people's health. Nutrition is the key to health and good nutrition is impossible without functional and comfortable teeth. Dental implants need not be excessively expensive of your time and money. Mini-implants have stood the test of timely service and are much easier on your mouth and your pocketbook. According to him, Dr.Allison's best days are when he can get a patient out of their toxic mercury fillings safely and easily and on to better health or when he can give a person their "teeth" back, which is how the patients describe the implant supported replacement teeth. Dr. Allison and his talented staff have many best days.
