Why you should consider seeing a biological or holistic dentist
A biological (also called holistic or natural) dentist works with the health of the whole body in mind. When a biological dentist treats your mouth, they do so with the belief that your mouth’s health is inextricably linked to your overall well-being. Dr. Fallah treats patients in the Carlsbad, California area with the understanding that oral health issues adversely affect the health of other areas of the body. He believes that the treatment of a patient’s mouth must be done so in a way that it can work in harmony with the rest of the body.
Biological dentists typically believe that dental treatments should be as minimally invasive as possible. Dr. Fallah also takes pride in educating patients to use safe and biocompatible materials for at-home oral care. When comparing a biological dentist to a traditional dentist, one of the biggest differences you will notice is that they do not view dental treatments as “one-size-fits-all.” Dr. Fallah takes a very individualized approach to dental care and understands that every patient is different and has unique needs.
Reasons to choose a biological dentist
The most significant reason to choose a biological dentist is that, as mentioned, they treat the mouth with the mindset that it is linked to the health of the entire body. Because of this, any materials used in treatments are all biocompatible and safe so that patients will not experience any allergic reactions. Materials such as composite resin (for fillings) and porcelain (for restorations) are utilized instead of metals. Metal amalgams contain harmful metals such as mercury that are toxic to the body. Finally, biological dentists seek to educate patients. Dr. Fallah is passionate about his field and seeks to educate his patients on the link between oral health and how it can benefit overall health.
