Holistic/Biological Dentistry

Holistic/Biological Dentistry

Dr. Pavlin takes a Holistic approach to dental care because she believes that each patient deserves to be treated as a whole person, not just a mouth needing to be fixed. As a biologic dentist she operates according to the idea that your teeth are an integral part of your body and as such your overall health

She recognizes that your oral and dental health can have major influence on other disease processes in your body. Any treatment performed takes this fact into account . The primary aim of holistic/biologic dentistry is to resolve your dental problems while working in harmony with the rest of your body.

A biologic or a holistic dentist can serve all your needs, but if you are considering removal of dental amalgams; its absolute necessity. Research shows that old silver, metal fillings , known also as amalgam fillings, contain more than 50% mercury. Mercury is a very toxic substance that can cause a variety of health issues such as MS , Hypothyroidism and Alzeheimers.

It is released in small amounts when chewing, drinking hot liquids, grinding , and brushing teeth with electric toothbrushes. The most dangerous mercury is release during unsafe removal of mercury filings.

Most conventional dentists simply do not have the know how to do it without putting your health at risk in the process.

For example, some things need to be done to keep you safe (Huggins protocol) during the removal include:

  • Providing our with an alternative air source and instructing you not to breath through your mouth.
  • Using cold-water spray to minimize mercury vapors.
  • Putting a dental dam in your mouth so you don't swallow or inhale any toxins and bits of amalgam.
  • Using a high-volume evacuator suction that goes over the tooth and two others near the tooth at all times to evacuate the mercury vapors.
  • Charcoal is given as a preventive measure to absord vapors, particles and toxins.
  • Wearing mercury gas mask and protective coverings.
