Ayurveda

Ayurveda (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge), originating in India 3,000-5,000 years ago, is one of the oldest holistic healing methods in the world.

This age old practice of medicine not only recommends treatments with specific herbs and minerals to cure various oral diseases but also recommends daily use of Ayurvedic methods for the prevention of and maintenance of oral health.

For those who prefer a more natural approach to oral health, a number of applications are available to help promote good oral health and the body from disease.

dental enamel and gluten intolerance

When most people think of celiac disease, they think of digestive discomfort and weight loss. While these are often symptoms of gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity and overall celiac disease, some are surprised to know that there is a direct connection between celiac and oral health. In fact, many people will not present with the classic digestive symptoms that lead to a celiac diagnosis, but instead will present with oral health issues that are related to celiac disease.

Mercury Toxicity

Conventional dental fillings are a mixture of metals consisting of approximately 50% mercury, followed by silver, copper, tin and zinc.  Most people are unaware that their so-called silver fillings are composed primarily of mercury, which is a potent neurotoxin. 

Studies have shown that over time, mercury leaches out of the fillings in the form of vapor or abraded particles.  Where does it go? Some of the mercury is swallowed as it can mix with foods, some may be inhaled in the form of vapor, and some may be exhaled.

O3 Ozone Therapy In Dentistry

Ozone is a symbol O triatomic molecule (O3) and is a naturally occurring compound that consists of a few oxygen atoms. As long as the sun is shining, it continuously forms in our upper atmosphere. It keeps our air clean and removes pollutants since it's heavier than air. The scent you get after a rainfall is due to the Ozone. For over 100 years, ozone therapy has been used in the medical field to successfully treat a number of different diseases. Its widespread use is due to its noninvasive nature, unique properties, and absence of adverse reactions and side effects.
