As Pres elect of the Holistic Dental Association and an accredited member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, I respectfully suggest some due diligence at www.IAOMT.org where you are welcome to peruse 1000+ articles from professional peer reviewed neurology/ toxicology /scientific journals that have no monetary connection to the placement or removal of amalgam (which is more than 50% mercury and does leach mercury vapor for the life of the material in the mouth, in the office/ suction lines, in the water supply down line from the dental office, in the environment, etc. (especially the microscopic particles smaller than you can see and small enough to go right through face masks of dental staff during removal).  

So taking NOT taking out amalgams is NOT the right thing to do. ...taking them out with all necessary precautions to protect patients, auxiliaries /dentists, and the environment is the prudent thing to do.

Use of a protocol that minimizes the exposure to all concerned includes dental dam, negative ion generator, effective masks, alternate air source, drapes, air cleaners, supplemental glutathione, vit C, activated charcoal, digestive enzymes, etc (provided the patient's APOE4 and CPOX genetic status is satisfactory) is the prudent thing to do.

FYI:  Mercury vapor leaches out of the filings at a rate proportionate to their surface area. The newer high copper alloys leach at at least 4 times that of older alloys. Heat, friction such as chewing and brushing increases the release of Hg vapor by 10x --which in a person with 4 average sized filings will exceed the OSHA workday PEL (permissible exposure limit).  The vapor emitted from these fillings is then breathed in and absorbed right through the tissue of the  oral cavity, so intimately positioned by the brain.

Within minutes of vapor inhalation, mercury can cross the blood brain barrier and other tissues where it is quickly oxidized and destroys many enzymatic reactions hampering body's metabolism and causing neurotoxicity.

Mercury is exchanged from mother to baby, concentrated in the placenta at 170% of the mothers burden effectively detoxing the mother, who incidentally may not have any amalgams because she could have detoxed her mother's mercury.  Breast milk contains mercury in amounts directly correlated to surface area of the amalgams in mothers who have amalgams or dental staff who have accumulated mercury as occupational exposure. Fecundability or inability to get pregnant is higher in dental staff than population.

Dentistry is the largest contributor of mercury into pottable water from dental office waste and the sewer systems in which 8 tons per year of Hg is excreted by those who have Hg fillings in their mouths. 

So, knowledge and safe treatment of the most toxic non-radioactive element is paramount.

Blessings over all~

We use homeopathy, aromatherapy, ozone, lasers, essential oils and more to help your immune system heal your teeth!  

Yes, teeth can heal!  There is a twice daily tidal wave of acidity and alkalinity to wash the toxins and damaged cells away from teeth through dentinal tubules and then lay down new minerals to repair the damage from microbes and toxins.

If you don't have leaky gut, and the digestion process works to break down food and absorb the nutrients, then your body can actually heal teeth! 

They "sweat" through the dentinal tubules and flush out the enamel as the body washes away the bad and brings in the new..  Our bodies are designed to be self-healing, I believe, and the good Lord is a great architect and physician to have such an intricate blueprint for the body to work the way it does under healthy circumstances.

We have to work very hard to keep the circumstances optimum for the body to do its job! Too many toxins or not enough nutrients will inhibit the body's innate ability to be self-cleaning and self- healing!

Warmest regards,

Dear Holistic Dentist: Should I have a root canal tooth taken out due to I have read Dr. Hal Huggins work.   But, the dental staff are saying to me to not lose a tooth because of shifting. What are my options? Thanks, Larry
Dear Larry,
No, the root canal teeth should not be left if you have any health issues and/ or you do not have regular ozone treatments available to you. There are Holistic Root canals for folks who do no want their teeth out when the nerve dies. These use ozonated water (3000 X better disinfectant than bleach) and a filling material called Biocalex instead of gutta percha.

Yes, the removal of teeth should include the curettage of the socket ("removal of the ligament") including any granulation tissue, periapical pathosis, and a margin of 1mm bone particularly at the root apex and any site of periodontal pathology. I also use platelet rich fibrin created from the patient's own blood to fill the void left as the tooth is extracted. This prevents the need for any foreign / synthetic substances like dead cow or people bone being placed in the body!

The best replacement option in my opinion is the Clear- Met partial. I have posted a picture of just one example of what has proven to be the most well liked, most dependable, most comfortable prosthetic made available in the my 35 year career. It is non- toxic of course!

Other option is an implant. There are now zirconium implants that are not metal, and do not seem to rust like the titanium ones have proven to do. The energetic patterns of the body do not seem to be disrupted by their placement since they are not metal. With the porcelain /zirconium implants, you would need to be sure to have a non- metal crown and connector on the implant.

I do not think that a bridge is a good option because you would have to cut down other teeth- remove all the enamel to make a bridge.  Metal partials are not a good option due to galvanic reactions. And, yes, I do think you should replace missing teeth due to the proprioceptive function of the teeth and mouth.

Kind regards,
 Dr. Lorie

Oxygen-Ozone Therapy Two essential things in life: oxygen and water. We can use them as highly effective, non-toxic tools to prevent and treat oral disease. Oxygen/Ozone is a well-studied therapy that has been around for hundreds of years and has been successful at treating everything from AIDS, to Cancer, and Lyme Disease.

Why do we need to use Oxygen/Ozone in oral healthcare? Because our body is a biologic/ecologic system, it functions in either an anaerobic or aerobic environment. The anaerobic environment occurs when there are pathogens/ biotoxins. These biotoxins can be a mixed infection not only compromised of bacteria, but fung, viral, and parasitic infection as well. This infection results in anaerobiosis or a fermentive process that is oxygen hating, acid loving, and is an uncontrolled oxidative injury and a pathologic dominant environment. This is essentially what gum/periodontal disease and decay/caries infections are.

In order for us to function well biologically, we need to create a shift from anaerobic to aerobic. There are very few methods that are proven to do this in a biologic way. Biologic healing is that which provides the body with the right tools to support the body’s ability to heal itself. The tools should also be safe, non-toxic, and non-invasive if at all possible. Another factor in biologic medicine and dentistry is to also allow the body to learn from whatever is causing the reaction that is harmful to it. Oxygen/ozone therapy is a great fit for accomplishing all of these things.

In dental disease, as well as disease in general, we are dealing with biofilms. Biofilms are colonies or very well organized groups of microorganisms/pathogens. It is a fully functioning city with its own language. They can learn from their environment because the biofilm has a very smart layer/cell wall that protects it. There are very few things that can penetrate it because they are increasingly becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics and antimicrobials. These drugs that are used regularly are also prescribed based on symptoms more often than the cause, and are toxic to our body, affecting our ecologic system in a negative way.

Oxygen/Ozone is a reaction that is already created by our body when exposed to pathogens. So, providing a low, and slow dose in addition to our own, can up-regulate the immune system to better deal with the microorganisms that are damaging to us. It does this by penetrating the biofilm, allows the body to learn from the pathogens, and help the body create a memory of it (auto-vaccine), thus allowing the body to heal itself when the pathogens enter into the body again.

There's a new diagnostic high-tech tool that specifically measures inflammation.

It's called thermal imaging or thermography. In a nutshell, this tool creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns -- patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. It uses a scanning-type infrared camera that measures your body surface temperature, presenting the information as a digitized image.

These thermal images (called thermograms) are analyzed for abnormalities that may be signs of disease in your body. Additionally, since your body is thermally symmetrical if normal, thermal asymmetries can indicate problems.

---Mammograms can actually INCREASE your chances of BREAST CANCER---

Mammograms expose your body to radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray, this makes you vulnerable unnecessarily to further risks of radiation-induced cancer.

Additionally, mammography compresses the breasts tightly (and often painfully), which could lead to a lethal spread of any existing malignant cells.

And there is no solid evidence that mammograms save lives. In fact, research demonstrates that adding an annual mammogram to a careful physical examination of the breasts does not improve breast cancer survival rates over getting the examination alone.

---FDA Approved in 1982: SAFE breast cancer screening tool---Only prediction of breast cancer in the FUTURE---

Nutrition can support your body’s own ability to eat up cancer. It is estimated that 4-5 cancers have been gobbled up by the body before a cancer is ever detected. Just don’t let your Killer-T cells get tired out!! Call or email now! Schedule your thermogram at our Wellness Day on August 28th 2013!

  Physically, lack of good quality sleep can increase your risk for cancer, stroke, heart attack, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure!!

So how can you sleep better — and avoid or reverse sleep deprivation? Here are a few simple steps... sleep experts recommend:

"10 Tips for Better Sleep"

1. 9-11pm are the two most important hours to sleep. Move up your bedtime up gradually= be consistant even on weekends and avoid napping during the day.
2. Avoid computer, TV and cell phone use 2 hours before bed= remove all blue and green lights on electronics in your room as they interupt deep sleep.
3. Keep your bedroom at a cool temperature (about 65 degrees).
4. Keep children and pets out of your bed for quiet, uninterupted sleep.
5. Don't use caffeine after 2 p.m. and limit to one serving a day.
6. Avoid alcohol for 3 hours prior to bedtime.
7. If you're hungry before bed, have a light snack of a carbohydrate- and fiber-rich food, such half an apple
8. Exercise between 5 and 7 p.m. for the most restorative sleep. Avoid strenuous exercise for 3 hours before bedtime.
9. Get a new mattress if yours is over 10 years old.
10. Use blinds or drapes to make your bedroom as dark as possible.

Did you know that most OTC vitamin C is made from High Fructose Corn Syrup (which is made in chlor-akyli plants that "lose" 8 tons of mercury per year in each of the 8 US plants)?
Research has linked the U.S. obesity epidemic to the use of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). HFCS has been tied to heart disease, fatty liver disease, diabetes, and gout.
Dr. Brownstein says:  Avoid sodas, sports drinks, & “juice” not labeled 100 percent organic. Don’t eat fast food. Limit your intake of
pastas, breads, and anything containing refined grain. EAT WHOLE, FRESH FOODS.

Much better to use vitamins from whole food source grown in soils naturally rich in nitrogen! We offer nutritional therapy as an adjunct to dental health therapies that include healing gum disease and preventing decay!
