General dentistry services in Carlsbad
General dentistry is an encompassing term that includes most of the dental treatments you are likely to need throughout life. You might think of your general dentist as gatekeeper for your overall oral health. In the hands of a biological dentist, the benefit extends to your overall wellbeing.
The majority of dental procedures are either diagnostic or preventive in nature. Dr. Fallah places strong emphasis on hygiene. He helps patients avoid the discomfort of dental disease, as well as the inconvenience and cost of extensive treatment with:
Professional cleaning of teeth, gums, and mouth.
Sharing of knowledge about prevention and the mouth-body connection.
Leading edge diagnostic technologies such as low-radiation digital x-rays and 3D imaging.
Oral cancer screening, a quick and painless test that could save your life.
Galvanic measurement to determine electrical voltage in teeth.
Treatment for gum disease - DNA testing identify specific bacteria that are overpopulating in the mouth. (This is in no way genetic identification recognition. It is a saliva test that only evaluates oral pathogens.) This may involve traditional deep cleaning, a process of mechanically removing build up of bacterial plaque and hardened tartar from tooth and root surfaces, and ozone therapy to eliminate pathogens and infection. In some cases, minimally-invasive surgery is needed to remove diseased gum tissue and re-establish a tight seal to teeth.
Biocompatibility testing - Each person’s body reacts differently to materials used in dental restorations. Sometimes an adverse effect occurs over time, months or years after treatment. Biocompatibility testing helps to determine the safest materials for your mouth and body.
Replacement of missing teeth - You may opt for a partial or full denture, a traditional crown and bridge unit, a biocompatible zirconia dental implant, or an implant retained denture.
Dental crowns - Metal free restorations that look natural while providing strength and protection to a tooth damaged by wear, trauma, or significant decay.
Mercury-free fillings - Dr. Fallah uses composite resin bonding materials that contain no mercury or metal and only trace amounts of BPAs to repair cavities. These restorations blend seamlessly with natural dentition.
Safe removal of amalgam fillings - Dr. Fallah’s amalgam removal protocol exceeds strict guidelines encouraged by the IAOMT. A micro seal technique creates an air-tight seal, safeguarding the patient’s airway from mercury vapor and particles.
Bite adjustment - Bite is balanced by correctly fitting restorations, and through the use of occlusal appliances.
Sleep apnea - More than oral appliance therapy, this mandibular repositioning device brings long-term relief from sleep apnea by improving dental alignment.
Treatment of head, neck, and jaw pain.
Custom dental solutions with a holistic approach
The oral-systemic connection is undeniable. Oral health closely reflects general health, and many systemic health issue present symptoms in the mouth. Diabetes is a classic example. Untreated gum disease increases risk of developing diabetes, and uncontrolled glucose levels contribute to periodontal disease. Thus, as a holistic practitioner, Dr. Fallah takes a broader approach to general dentistry.
He begins by taking as much time as necessary to understand what you want to accomplish, listening carefully to identify your concerns, and weighing in on health-related priorities. If you want to take analysis to the next level, he utilizes special diagnostic techniques to determine factors that may be taxing your immune system. For example, APOE genotyping can be very beneficial in determining how your unique physiology handles toxic loads from dental restoration materials such as amalgam, or biological issues including toxins in cavitations (infected holes in bone).
There is no pressure to pursue holistic methods, and treatment planning is a collaborative, relaxed process. Depending on your needs, Dr. Fallah also works closely with your other providers for integrated healthcare.
A biological approach to general dentistry focuses on helping you stay well from head to toe. For a full range of preventive, diagnostic, restorative, and cosmetic services, call Dr. Al A. Fallah in Carlsbad, CA at (760) 576-2779 .
