Basic tenets of biological dentistry

There is no specific rulebook for biological dentistry. Rather, this type of practice frees the dentist to gather together the best of conventional dental methods, emerging techniques and technologies, ancient holistic medical knowledge, and an integration with other healthcare fields for the benefit of the patient. Biological (holistic or natural) dentistry represents the most customized form of dental care.

In the care of a biological dentist, you can generally count on treatment in accordance with the following core concepts.

Mouth-body connection – Historically, in healthcare, the mouth has been treated as a separate entity from the rest of the body, which is absurd. Your teeth, jaws, and soft tissues are obviously body parts, and the connection goes much deeper. The mouth is the most crucial element of bodily survival, supporting breathing and nourishment. From birth, every single thing that enters the mouth has some impact on the rest of the body. A biological dentist may advise on poor nutrition, and counsel you about lifestyle habits such as smoking, because he or she knows that the detrimental effects go far beyond your smile.

The biological dentist is quick to address oral conditions such as gum disease that may ravage the body with increased risk of diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and other inflammatory systemic illnesses. The mouth is also a reflection of what is happening internally, so a biological dentist is vigilant for symptoms that present orally, including inflamed gums, discolored teeth, unusual decay, or soft tissue lesions.

First, do no harm – A biological dentist cautiously seeks dental materials and treatment techniques that expose the body to harmful elements to the least degree possible. No amalgam fillings are placed, as this material contains about 50 percent mercury, a potent neurotoxin. At the request of the patient or when silver-colored fillings fail, amalgam is removed in accordance with strict safety standards to minimize exposure to mercury vapor and particulate matter.

Dentists have access to a broad range of products for dental restorations. Biocompatibility testing may be recommended. This test analyzes your body’s sensitivity to thousands of common elements in these products, so that the dentist may make choices that reduce risk of adverse reactions to dental work.

Minimize toxic load – Based on wellness and immune system response, each individual has a different capacity to manage toxic load. Exposure to a given chemical or medical condition may cause very little problem for one individual but be devastating to another. The biological dentist is attuned to situations that may increase toxic load on the body.

Biological dentists do not prescribe topical or oral fluoride treatments. All options should always be discussed with the patient, and when it comes to Root Canal Therapy, many patients opt to avoid this procedure as it is believed to leave a dead tooth with no blood supply residing in vital bone and gum tissue. Tooth structure may look impervious, but it is full of microscopic channels where harmful oral pathogens hide. Thus, the notion exists that it is impossible to completely sanitize root canals and that bacteria migrate from the treated tooth into adjacent tissues, requiring the immune system to battle resulting toxins 24/7/365.

Address the unseen – The biological dentist looks beyond the surface to reveal conditions that may be compromising overall wellness. For example, holes in jawbone at the sites of extracted teeth may foster necrosis, though bone and soft tissues at the surface have healed. Cavitations evade most x-rays, requiring focused diagnostics and treatment.

Patients in Roseville, CA benefit from biological dentistry in many ways. They enjoy comfortable, functional mouths and smile with confidence knowing their teeth are attractive. Their dental treatment promotes overall wellness for improved energy and quality of life.

I want to give a recommendation for a natural dentist to anyone seeking a holistic leaning dentist, or any dentistry at all for that matter. I had a dental emergency due to several cavities that ended up being put on hold because of the virus shutdown. Living in Tahoe, the options of which dentists I had to choose from was short, and all of them were closed still. Over the last month I wound up with severe tooth pain from the bacteria in the cavities that very nearly became systemic. Two days ago I searched google for a natural dentist in Sacramento and the first one that was open and actually answered their phone was the good people at Sacramento Natural Dentistry. I explained to them my predicament and they got me an appointment yesterday at two o'clock. (Next day appointment after being closed for two months!) After taking x-rays and seeing the severity of the condition, I was offered a choice in treatment options. Yes you heard that right, a choice as to which procedures best fit my life situation. After a conversation about my options, some lidocaine was administered and 3 cavities were filled with precision and amazing efficiency followed by an extraction of a tooth that we determined was beyond being worth saving. The staff was helpful and kind and treated me with respect. The dentist who performed the procedure, Dr. Darryl Azouz who has twenty two years experience in dentistry, was patient and attentive, professional and very personable. I immediately noticed his authenticity and genuine care for others. Throughout the procedure we conversed and I really must say that overall it was the most pleasant time I've ever had in a dentists chair. Any of you out there who are looking for good holistic dental care at a fair price as well as a heart based approach, I can tell you that he and his team were well worth my drive from Tahoe for a visit. I am grateful to have found them and will return for future dental work without hesitation. Keep safe and many blessings.

I have referred several friends and family and all have been so happy with Dr. Azouz. My kids now love going to the dentist and I appreciate how good Dr. Azouz and the staff are with them. This is an office you will not be disappointed in, and is great for all ages!
