Conservative & Minimally Invasive
Many of you probably feel invigorated after a thunderstorm or during a stroll along the beach. If so, ozone may be at least partly responsible for your feelings of youthful energy. Ozone (O3) is an energized form of oxygen. It is that clean, fresh smell you notice during a thunderstorm and it has been known as a powerful medicine for more than 100 years. In many ways, ozone is a perfect medicine . . . it completely destroys bacteria, mold, yeast and viruses while simultaneously stimulating the immune system. Ozone allows us to treat many dental conditions in a very conservative manner.
A Healthier, More Aesthetic Alternative
Mercury Free Options
We all know by now that the term “silver filling” is a euphemism . . . they are silver in color only and actually contain 50% mercury. During the removal of “silver fillings,” the mercury component of the filling is vaporized. If the removal process is done improperly, you can be exposed to dangerous levels of mercury vapor . . . an important point that is often overlooked by dentists who are not committed to mercury-safe dentistry.
At Eastin Center for Modern Dentistry, we have developed a mercury-safe protocol that provides 8 layers of protection between you and the mercury in your fillings. These steps have been proven to greatly reduce your exposure to mercury vapor during amalgam filling removal.
Why Choose Holistic Dentistry?
First do no harm
I honor the fundamental principle of medicine, "first do no harm" . . . as such I use materials that are as safe and non-toxic as possible, use methods that are conservative and minimally invasive and use safeguards to protect against exposure to toxins like mercury.
I am a tooth conserving dentist
Once tooth structure is removed, it is gone forever. This is why I hate crowning teeth. I also hate doing things that set a tooth up for needing a root canal.
When appropriate or when requested, we utilize the Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT) to help identify which of the 6300 available dental products are best tolerated by your immune system.
Ozone is extremely beneficial when the tooth nerve has been damaged by decay. Using O3 water followed by O3 gas will often prevent the nerve from dying, thus preventing the need for a root canal or extraction.
