When Doctors Disagree, Who Should You Believe? Medicine is a science, right? Studied and perfected over time? If that’s the case, then why do doctors so often disagree? The differ in their diagnoses, in their treatments, and in their interpretations of the research. Dentistry is no different. Dentists disagree all the time. One dentist may recommend a filling while one says you need an onlay....
If you find yourself Googling Natural Dentist, you won’t find much about it from the American Dental Association. The field of natural dentistry is not taught in dental schools and is not recognized as a specialty (like orthodontists, oral surgeons, or pediatric dentists). In fact, ask any dentist about natural dentistry and he or she will give you the deer in the headlights look because...

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:
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.
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.
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.
