Dentist in Citrus Heights, CA provides treatment with the whole body in mind

Citrus Heights, CA provides dental treatment

Regular visits with your dentist are a vital component of oral health. Just as important is the type of materials and procedures that your dentist uses. These days, we find many patients making the shift to a dentist who understands the connection between oral health and total wellness. This connection between the mouth and the rest of the body is important, and one we keep at the front of our minds as we visit with each one of our patients.

The oral systemic connection

If you are on the hunt for a holistic or biological dental provider, chances are you’ve read some of the many studies that have found a connection between oral issues such as gum disease and other medical conditions such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and even cancer. Gum disease is one of the most common oral health problems, and in many cases is completely preventable.

Gum disease is classified into two stages: gingivitis and advanced periodontal disease. Gingivitis, the first stage includes symptoms such as swollen, tender, or bleeding gums and chronic bad breath. In most cases, gingivitis can be reversed when caught early. Advanced periodontal disease occurs as the gum tissue begins to separate from the teeth, leaving deep pockets. These pockets can become filled with plaque and bacteria, eventually leading to infection. Once infection occurs, patients are at a high risk of tooth loss and bone degeneration.

The best way to prevent gum disease is through oral hygiene. Proper brushing and flossing, and regular dental visits, along with quitting smoking and improving nutrition can help.

Tooth decay is a problem that can lead to cavities and have a negative impact on the body. Consuming a diet high in sugar and improper oral hygiene both contribute to tooth decay. Signs of cavities can include sensitivity to hot or cold, pain, or dark areas on the tooth.

The best way to prevent decay and disease is through proper brushing and flossing. Regularly scheduled dental exams are also important. Dental hygienists use specialized instruments that can reach areas below the gums that patients cannot. At Sacramento Natural Dentistry, we also use ozone gas below the gums to sterilize the pockets around the tooth below the gumline.

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 love this office! Dr. Azouz is the best dentist my family has ever had. I have had nothing but positive experiences every time I have had anything done in this office. 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!
