FREE Smile Makeover Consultation
San Diego and Carlsbad holistic cosmetic dentist, Dr. Fallah, mercury free dentist, provides full mouth reconstruction, smile makeovers for his patients in his state-of-the-art dental center in Carlsbad, CA.
Dr. Fallah's Holistic beliefs are that the health of your teeth, gums, temporo-mandibular joints, head and neck muscles, and your bite are an integral part of the total health of your body. As more and more studies suggest connections between oral health and other aspects of physical well-being, holistic methods are becoming increasingly relevant to the field of dentistry.
Dr. Fallah believes that successful oral health involves treating every patient as a whole person and is committed to excellence in this area. As a result of this commitment, Dr. Fallah, accredited by the
IAOMT, is able to combine state-of-the art technology with a wide range of natural and biological approaches to oral health.
For many years, dentistry has focused almost exclusively on dental problems, without considering the fact that ailments of other parts of the body may be related to dental health. In recent years, however, many doctors have adopted a 'whole body' approach, and are seeing that a holistic approach to dentistry is beneficial to their patients' health, wellness, and longevity. Although holistic dentistry has become much more common, many people do not know the differences between traditional dentistry and holistic dentistry.
What is Holistic Dentistry?
"Holistic" means examining the entire body system, rather than focusing on individual symptoms. Often in medicine, single symptoms
can be indicators of a much deeper, more complex problem. Treating the single symptom can often fail to address the underlying medical issue.
Holistic dentistry looks at the overall health of each patient as it relates to their dental health. More comprehensive than
traditional dentistry, the holistic approach combines both integrative medicine and natural approaches with modern dental diagnostics
and treatments. Holistic dentists examine much more than just their patients' teeth. Holistic dentists understand that there
are many other factors that may impact dental health, such as bite problems, nutrition and diet, and other imbalances that can cause
health issues. A holistic dentist goes beyond simply treating diseases in teeth and gums and looks at the overall health and
wellness of each patient.
Why Visit a Holistic Dentist?
Today, many people are seeking more natural ways to treat their health symptoms- and are looking beyond conventional Western medicine. Traditional modern medical treatments usually involve prescription medication or harsh treatments in order to alleviate symptoms. However, these treatment methods can often result in side-effects or complications that can be avoided through a holistic approach.
When visiting a holistic dentist, patients see that the dentist uses a combination of natural healing and modern science to find an effective combination of treatments for each individual. The holistic dentist will focus on the mind, body, and emotional health of the patient, rather than simply the teeth. This treatment process works toward improving overall health and wellness, and as a result of this treatment, the dental health will improve, as well.
A major advantage to using holistic dentistry rather than traditional dentistry is the avoidance of some modern dental treatments that may be associated with other health complications. While many common dental treatments may seem like a proper solution for the teeth, those treatments can often have negative effects on the general health and wellness of the patient.
Differences between traditional dentistry and holistic dentistry:
- Holistic dentists will not use mercury amalgam in fillings. Mercury amalgam is toxic to the body, and often contains 50% mercury. The holistic dentist will use safer substances that are toxin free.
- Holistic dentists treat gum disease without invasive surgery.
- Holistic dentists will use specific methods to treat teeth with root canals. Teeth with root canals may cause systemic health problems. Root canal procedures often trap bacteria which may spread to other parts of the body, causing severe complications.
- Holistic dental offices most often use digital X-rays, which have 90% less radiation exposure than traditional X-rays, and don't involve the use of any chemicals in the office.
- Holistic dentists follow strict and specific protocols to limit mercury exposure when amalgam fillings are being removed.
Holistic Dentistry Benefits
The results seen in holistic dentistry speak for themselves. Numerous patients have seen great health successes through the work of holistic dentists. For example, some have lived with 'mystery' or untreated, undiagnosed illnesses for years where traditional doctors were unable to find a cause or solution. After visiting a holistic dentist, many learned that earlier dental treatments they had received may have been the cause of a chronic illness. Holistic dentists take immediate steps to remedy ongoing problems, such as balancing a bite, fixing a root canal on a tooth, or removing amalgam fillings, and often the illness disappears almost immediately.
When visiting a holistic dentist, remember that your dental health is directly linked to your overall health, and that the teeth are an integral part of the complete body system. By avoiding dental treatments that may cause complications in other parts of the body, or relieving the toxic impact of past treatments, total body health is improved.
Prevention versus Treatment
Many patients are turning to holistic dentists to clean their mouth of past toxic treatments. Holistic dentists can safely and effectively remove old amalgam fillings and replace them with a much more natural looking, safer filling that is toxin and mercury free. Holistic dentists can advise you regarding root canals and may be able to reverse any adverse effects. Symptoms of mercury poisoning and complications from root canal treatments are not always noticed, because often the effects can surface in other body symptoms, and go undiagnosed by a traditional dentist or physician.
Holistic dentists work to help you prevent future dental problems that might require invasive treatment, such as surgery or tooth removal. Through whole body wellness, emotional well-being, and improved nutrition and dental care, holistic dentists can help you make more positive lifestyle choices which can increase not only your dental health but your overall well being, happiness, and longevity.
