Biological Dentistry
Our Philosophy

It has been recognized that oral health has a tremendous impact on the general health of the body. Researchers all over the world, especially in Europe and Japan estimate that perhaps as much as half of all chronic degenerative illness can be linked either directly or indirectly to dental problems and the traditional techniques of modern dentistry used to treat them.

Biological Dentistry, also called Holistic Dentistry, Natural Dentistry or Integrative Dentistry, refers to the branch of Dentistry that views the health of the mouth as integrally related to the overall health of the body. Its objective is to eliminate the toxins and infections of the mouth that may play a factor in facial and neck pain and various chronic degenerative conditions.

While conventional dentistry is designed to treat only the symptoms produced by poor oral health, biological dentistry aims to eliminate the core causes of these problems. By treating the sources of disease, discomfort and toxicity, biological dentistry seeks not only to improve oral health, but also to bring about greater overall health to the body.

Your body is not a collection of individual organs that function independently of one another. It is a complex, fragile network of parts that engage in constant communication with each other to ensure the health of the whole organism. For this reason, the condition of one part directly influences the operation of all. That is why you owe it to yourself to seek a dentist who understands the effects of oral health on the entire body.

The major types of dental problems that can compromise the immune system are:

  • Infections under and around teeth

  • Toxicity from dental restoration materials

  • Temporomandibular joint dysfunction

  • Oral galvanism


Dental amalgam fillings can release mercury, tin, copper, silver, and sometimes zinc into the body. All of these metals have various degrees of toxicity and when placed as fillings in the teeth can corrode or disassociate into metallic ions. These metallic ions can then migrate from the tooth into the root of the tooth, the mouth, the bone, the connective tissues of the jaw, and finally into nerves. From there they can travel into the central nervous system.
The materials used in dental work must be strong enough to do the job. That is why most dentists use alloys or combinations of metals, which may include, copper, palladium, nickel, platinum, silver, and others, which, could also be toxic. However, there are now alternative materials which are preferable and more than adequate to accomplish the task.

If possible, always avoid metal in the mouth, and opt for a porcelain based or ceramic composite material. This warning is especially important if there is already amalgam present. The presence of other metals will cause increased electrical currents, and therefore greater corrosion of the amalgam. This results in even higher levels of toxic by-products being released into the body
If you are ill, never proceed with any dental work until you have had a compatibility test. A special laboratory will determine which materials your system will be least sensitive to perform this test, also called a Dental Materials Reactivity Test . The test considers metals as well as composite, cements, and other dental components, which can often cause immunological reactions.
