Are You Ready to Reap the Benefits of a Biological Dentist? Here’s Why You Should Look into How to Find One Near You!

Have you sought a dental experience consisting of wholly natural treatments, void of non-toxic materials and metals? Holistic (also called biological) dentistry is a subset of dentistry that focuses on your oral health as a part of your overall health and well-being. In contrast, traditional dentistry focuses solely on oral health, not linking it to other health concerns you may face. If you have been wondering how you can find a biological/holistic dentist in the United States, you should reach out to Dr. David Son, DDS. in the Irvine, California, area.

Dr. David Son has over 25 years of experience practicing dentistry and has wholly embraced the holistic dentistry method. He received his training in biological dentistry at the Swiss Biohealth Clinic in Switzerland and continues to be on the leading edge of his field by continuing his education and training. Let us look into this fascinating field of dentistry and how it can benefit you and other dental patients worldwide.

What is a Biological Dentist?

In dentistry, the term biological can be interchanged with the terms holistic, natural, and functional. Whatever your dentist labels themselves as (for this article, we will use the term biological), a biological dentist treats dental health issues as a piece of your overall health. When you visit your biological dentist, they will seek to find a root cause for why this oral health condition exists. Instead of treating your mouth as an isolated part of your biology, a biological dentist will see if other aspects of your health could be causing your oral health concerns. Biological dentists go above and beyond what is taught in traditional dental school to provide their patients with a complete experience.

A biological dentist will offer treatment that will not put other areas of your body at risk while educating you on changes you can make in your life to help avoid future dental health issues. A significant portion of the treatment you will get from your local biological dentist will be in the form of education. You must know how to care for your whole body because, when you do that, your oral health will also reap the benefits.

Differences Between Biological and Traditional Dentistry

Because the focus of traditional dentistry is limited to the treatment of the teeth, gums, and other oral organs only, the procedures and materials used can differ from that of a biological dentist, whose focus on oral health encompasses how it is impacted by and impacts the health of the entire body. Differences between traditional dentists and biological dentists include:

  • The use of fluoride in treatments: Fluoride is a mineral naturally occurring in nature and can be found in natural resources, including water and rocks. Dentists have utilized fluoride in the treatment of teeth and bones for many years. Fluoride has been found to strengthen teeth and bones and is also used as a preventative measure. Biological dentists avoid the use of fluoride in treatments. When fluoride is overused, the patient could suffer from fluorosis due to the toxic nature fluoride has on the body.
  • Root Canals: When a tooth’s inner pulp becomes infected, a traditional dentist will surely turn to root canal therapy for treatment. When a root canal is performed, the infected material of the inner tooth is removed, the tooth is cleaned, and then sealed and capped with a crown. Biological dentists tend to resist performing this procedure due to the toxic chemicals used in sterilizing the tooth. Biological dentists don’t always believe in the effectiveness of this procedure. With the introduction of ozone therapy, some biological dentists have begun to use this to clean the tooth.
  • Dental Fillings: This area of dentistry is not so different today from how biological and traditional dentists perform it, but there was a time when mercury and other metals were the predominant materials used in dental fillings. Mercury is toxic to the body and can be dangerous to patients. Many dentists have turned to composite resin fillings in traditional and biological dentistry. This material is biocompatible and presents many other benefits that old metal amalgam fillings cannot match. If you have a metal filling, you should inquire with your local biological dentist about having them removed.
