Biological dentistry

What is Biological Dentistry?, – Biological dentistry relates to removing major obstacles to healthy living and hasten recovery from chronic illness. It stresses the relationship of oral health to total wellness because of the interconnection of the teeth to body organ. This fact was made known when it was established that the teeth and body organs share the same pathway (meridians). A trained biological dentists focuses on the use of safe or the least toxic restorative materials for dental works and is alert on the unrecognized impact of dental toxins and the hidden infections as a health hazard to unsuspecting patients.

5 Dental Contribution to Illnesses

1. Temporo-Mandibular Disorder (TMD) (Misaligned jaw / bad bite)
• Refer to a collection of medical and dental conditions affecting the TMJ and/or the muscles of mastication, as well as its contiguous tissue components.

2. Bio-Incompatibility (allergy) to dental restoration materials
• Toxicity from dental restoration & other materials
(ex.: Mercury fillings (Amalgam), Fluoride)

3.  Electrogalvanization

4. Dissimilar metals produces high dental currents that lead to galvanic corrosion of the restoration materials. (ex.: gold, silver, cobalt, chromium)

5. Dental Interference Field
• Unerupted teeth
• Wisdom teeth (impacted or not)
• Root canal filled teeth
• Bone cavities
• Cysts
• Non-vital/non-root canal filled teeth
• Granulomas
• Areas of bone condensation due to healed or unhealed osteitis


Interactive Meridian Tooth Chart:

The easy-to-use tooth chart for effective tool in educating patients about the relationship of their mouth to the rest of the body. Every organ and every part of your body is directly linked to a specific tooth or area of the mouth via these meridians, or energy highways. The Interactive Meridian Tooth Chart has been developed to allow the dentist and patient to learn about the relationship between the teeth and the body as an aide for overall health and wellness issues.

Mercury ToxicityWhat is Amalgam filling?

Amalgam filling is also known as mercury or silver filling which is commonly used to restore posterior (back) teeth due to its strength, least time consuming on the manipulation and least costly. It is also called mercury filling because 50% of its composition is mercury, 30% silver, and others are tin, zinc and copper. Mercury is a toxic substance that is poisonous to the nervous system. It is more toxic than lead, arsenic and cadmium. The safe level of mercury exposure to human being is zero. About 440 medical symptoms responded upon amalgam removal to completely eliminate stored mercury in the body. The patient’s immune system is evaluated in preparation to amalgam removal. Immune system buildup at least 1 to 2 weeks is undertaken to prepare the patient to a greater risk of unexpected bodily reaction of an abrupt heavy metal removal. Preparation consists of vitamins and minerals supplement intake, nutritional counseling and lifestyle modifications.

Protocols for amalgam removal
1. Using high vac-suction machine.
2. Isolation of the tooth with amalgam by rubber dam.
3. Copious amounts of water application.
4. Utilizing mercury vapor ionizer.
5. Air room ionizer to prevent mercury vapor spread and inhalation.
5. Follow sequential schedule amalgam removal according to 7, 14, 21 days protocol.
6. Nasal oxygen administration.
7. Conscious sedation preferably to anxious patients with multiple amalgam fillings.

 

Effects of Mercury Toxicity

♦ Psychological Disturbances – Irritability, nervousness, shyness or timidity, loss of Memory, lack of attention, loss of self-confidence, lack of self-control, fits of anger, decline of intellect anxiety.

♦ Oral Cavity Disorders – Gingivitis, stomatitis, foul breath, metallic taste, bleeding gums, alveolar bone loss, loosening of teeth, excessive salivation, tissue pigmentation, leukoplakia (white patches), ulceration of gingiva, palate and tongue, and burning sensation in mouth & throat.

♦ Gastrointestinal Effects – Gastrointestinal problems, abdominal cramps, constipation or diarrhea.

♦ Systemic Effects

● Cardiovascular – Feeble and irregular pulse, pain or pressure in chest, irregular heartbeat (tachycardia, pradycardia).
● Neurological – Ringing or noise in the ears, chronic or frequent headaches, fine tremors (hands, feet, lips, eyelids, tongue).
● Respiratory -Emphysema, persistent cough, shallow & irregular respiration.
● Immunological – Allergies, sinusitis asthma, rhinitis (inflammation of the nose), lymphadenopathy, especially cervical (neck).
● Endocrine – Subnormal temperature, excessive perspiration, cold, clammy skin, especially hands & feet.
● Others – Fatigue, joint pains, speech disorders, anemia, edema (swelling), bulemia, loss of weight, muscle weakness, yeast syndrome, myesthenia gravis, parkinson’s disease, alzheimer’s disease, learning disabilities, rheumatoid arthritis, dim or double vision, hypoxia (lack oxygen), lupus erythematosus, ankylosis spondylitis, loss of appetite (anorexia), multiple chemical sensitivities.

♦ Severe Cases – Hallucinations, manic depression, panic attacks, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder.

♦ Other Side Effects – Faintness, stiffness, eczema, tremors, nausea, weakness, weight loss, bloody vomit, cancer, birth defects, mottled teeth, loss of appetite, sores in the mouth; black tar like stools, stomach cramps or pain, pain and aching of bones, unusual increase in saliva; white, black or brown discoloration of teeth, osteoporosis & especially hip fractures in areas where water is fluoridated, aging, decreases the ability of the White Blood Cells (WBC) to phagocytes or destroy, bacteria & other foreign agents.

 

 

Flouride ToxicityWhat are Fluorides? Fluorides are organic and inorganic naturally occurring compounds that contain fluorine element. It is generally colorless, more or less soluble in water that either can take the form of solid, liquid and gas. Fluorides have large amount of usage in the chemical industry such as in the aluminum production, drinking water fluoridation and the manufacture of fluoridated dental preparations.How fluoride affects health?At high level, fluorides can result in tooth and bone damage. Excessive amount of fluoride can lead to dental fluorosis thus prevent the normal maturation of the enamel during the period of tooth development in children up to 8 years old. On severe cases it could also cause skeletal fluorosis which increased risk of bone fracture. Countries with high level of fluoride like Africa, China and India are very much prone to this condition.
Biological Dentistry Guidelines
Dentist trained in the pioneering field of biological dentistry are required to observe strict protocols on amalgam removal, extraction of dead tooth/teeth and surgery on bone cavitation especially on medically compromised patients, and in particular those who are suffering from cancer.
