ADD / ADHD Treatment

Part of what I want to do with this blog is to talk more about other areas of health in addition to dentistry because we all know that there’s more to life than dental right? Well… Rhea found this site which happens to be here in San Diego. We have a friend who has a kid with ADD and we think this place could help....

Disease Prevention Starts With Detoxification First

I was reading a post on how a guy lost all of his articles. “I like having a small library of articles touching on how “only the body heals itself” and disease prevention through whole food nutrition.” I feel sorry for this guy because it has taken me many years to get my collection of information.  I think you should start doing the same. I...

Mercury Issues In San Diego Water

Double check the water you’re drinking because it could be contaminated with mercury. The source… amalgam (mercury fillings scrap) when removed from your mouth at the dentist goes into the water system.  That’s right.  Dentists currently do not have to have an “amalgam separator” installed in their offices. An amalgam separator (as seen here) is a device that links into the sewer system inside a...

Holistic Dentistry

Optimal overall health begins and ends in the oral cavity. There have been many medical studies over the years that have shown a link between poor oral health and diseases such as arthritis. Sometimes, however, dental treatments are so preoccupied with resolving oral problems that they neglect the health of the rest of the body. This is why the services of a holistic dentist in Encinitas is vital.

As one of the most trusted natural dentists in San Diego County, Dr. Marvin Pantangco offers top-class holistic dentistry treatments to his patients. When you choose us for your dental care needs, you can be assured that every dental treatment and procedure you undergo is not only good for you oral health, but also your overall well-being as well.

Some of the holistic dentistry services offered at The Center for Natural Dentistry include:

Biocompatibility Testing

The introduction of implants and other similar dental prosthetics require the body to accept the material used to fashion such prosthetics. Biocompatibility testing services help you and your natural dentist determine your body’s compatibility with certain materials, significantly reducing the chances of rejection and potentially dangerous reactions, as well as improve the chances of a successful procedure.

Safe Dental Materials

Unfortunately, some dental materials may contain substances that may have an adverse effect on your overall health. For example, amalgam fillings can leak, exposing you to toxic mercury. Heavy metals such as aluminum can be found in dentures. We can help identify any potentially dangerous substances you may currently be using, remove them, and replace them for you.

Nutrition

Brushing and flossing your teeth are great ways to preserve the health of your teeth, but you should also be aware of whether or not your body gets enough nutrients from your daily diet to support your teeth. A holistic dentist like Dr. Marvin can help you make any adjustments to your diet to make sure your body is getting enough of the vitamins and minerals necessary to maintain strong, healthy teeth.

Ozone Dentistry

One of the most complex and perplexing problems in dentistry today is infection control. Ozone therapy creates a transient oxidative burst, a reaction that overstresses and kills harmful microorganisms, effectively disinfecting an area. As an added bonus, ozone therapy is also known to improve blood flow and induce faster healing.
