Holistic Dental Services
Serving patients in the Miami-Dade region and beyond, we provide a full range of holistic and biological dental services.
Our office is fluoride-free, mercury-free, and mercury-safe. To minimize exposure to radiation, we use only digital imaging and take x-rays only when needed (never “routinely”).
When teeth need to be repaired, we use only tooth-colored composite fillings and ceramic (porcelain) restorations. We never use amalgam or other metals. The composites we use are fluoride-free and BPA-free. The implants we place are ceramic only.
To ensure biocompatibility – especially for our most sensitive patients – we can order testing from Clifford Consulting and Research.
Safe Amalgam Removal
Amalgam fillings are 50% mercury, and mercury is a potent neurotoxin. It’s been linked with Alzheimer’s Disease and autism, not to mention a host of neurological, autoimmune, and other serious disorders.
So to protect the health of our patients, dental team, and environment, we follow strict safety protocols when removing mercury amalgam “silver” fillings.
Root Canal Removal
Root canal teeth have been linked with a wide variety of cancers, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic conditions. For this reason, many choose to have them removed. We can do so and thoroughly disinfect the socket and underlying bone to promote good healing. We are happy to to work with your other healthcare providers in supporting your whole body healing afterwards.
Ozone is super-charged oxygen, an ideal disinfectant. We use it to treat various dental sensitivities, infected teeth, and extraction sites. To minimize the risk of cross-infection, we use distilled water in our dental lines for all treatments.
Surgery-Free Periodontal Treatment
Advanced gum disease can put your teeth at risk. In the past, only surgical options were available to help. Today, we have dental ozone and lasers to help us thoroughly disinfect periodontal pockets and support tissue regeneration. Such treatments are painless, easy on the patient, and support your body’s self-healing mechanisms. Add optimal nutrition and dedicated hygiene, and profound improvement is a reality.
Biocompatible Dental Implants
Implants are one of the best options when you need to replace missing teeth. They look and function just like natural ones. Cared for properly, they can last just as long. While titanium implants are traditional, we favor biocompatible zirconium (ceramic) implants when they’re needed to restore a smile. The implants are placed surgically in your jaw, and then topped with a crown or bridge.
