The Biological Dental Practice

Biological dentistry is simply an extension of traditional or conventional dentistry that broadens its scope to encompass the overall health of a patient.  It pays close attention to the inter-relationship between such areas as nutrition, the immune system, the central nervous system and the general health of the mouth and teeth to improve the well being of the total patient.   In other words, with a Biological Dentist you get more. You get a dentist whose goal is not only to restore your teeth to a "like-new" condition in both appearance and function but to also resolve any existing problems with toxic materials or hidden infections.  We invite you to look at some before and after pictures on the "Beautiful Teeth" page.



Biological dentists are very concerned about the materials used in dental fillings and appliances and the safety of root canals.  They also pay close attention to the impact a toxic material or a hidden infection in the oral cavity has on other areas and systems in the body.

Perhaps the strongest reason a dentist has to become a Biological Dentist is his concern about the implantation of mercury in patients mouths.  Many patients are finding that their mercury-silver fillings have been slowly releasing quantities of mercury that their bodies are not able to handle. The constant flow of mercury from the fillings in their mouth of some patients results in a weakened immune system that loses its ability to fight off chronic degenerative diseases.  In addition, to place the amalgam the tooth has to be carved out. This weakens the tooth and increases the chances it may crack in the future.

Metal fillings can also cause other problems with the central nervous system and the brain from the electric current that fillings of different metal materials can generate in the mouth.  These different metals when moistened by the saliva become a small battery that generates  electricity that can cause interference with the body's natural electrical system.

Did you know that the term "mad hatter" in Alice in Wonderland was from actual hat makers. In the 1800's hat makers became poisoned by the mercury they rubbed onto the felt material.  These poor people, after working for some years making hats from mercury impregnated felt would become ill and mentally disturbed and then have to quit their jobs.  They literally went crazy.  Many people that wore those hats also became ill.

Fortunately, today there are many less toxic options to mercury-silver amalgam fillings for your teeth.  The perfect dental filling material does not exist.  The materials currently available are gold or ceramic inlays, and a wide variety of composite resins and acrylic plastics.  These materials require a higher degree of skill and technique than amalgam fillings.  Composite fillings are glued in place with a glue that actually strengthens the tooth.  If a composite filling needs repair or has worn down the entire filling does not need to be replaced as is the case with amalgam.  The color of the composite fillings can be matched to your teeth producing a natural, healthy look.

Many people who choose to have their amalgam removed report that they feel better as soon as the less toxic material has replaced the old amalgam filling.  The likely explanation for this is that the low energy electrical current flow has been stopped, thus relieving the patients particular problem.

Biological dentists exercise extreme care when removing amalgam fillings on several levels.  The fillings that generate the higher electrical current need to be removed first.  Proper care and equipment is needed to minimize the amount of mercury that ends up in a patient's body during the removal of the amalgam.  A nutritional regimen that is designed to help eliminate mercury from the body can be implemented for sensitive patients who experience symptoms during or immediately after removal of the amalgam.  If mercury poisoning is severe chelation therapy may be employed to eliminate the mercury and other metals from the patient's body.

One of modern dentistry's strangest aspects is the fact that when mercury-silver fillings are removed from a patient's mouth they are considered hazardous waste by the EPA.  Removed mercury-silver amalgam fillings must be stored under water in a special container.  disposal can only be by designated hazardous waste processors.  A dentist's operating room does not have carpeting.  Carpets around the dental chair are against regulations because they can contaminate the entire office.

Sensitivity to any poison varies with each individual. This includes mercury.  Mercury impacts the immune system, the central nervous system, the thyroid gland and other systems.  It is the most dangerous poison that is not radio-active.  Only Uranium-235 is more deadly than mercury.




Teeth are not the solid objects you may think they are.  They are alive. They have thousands of miles of microscopic vessels that nourish the tooth.  When a tooth is dead or dying these microscopic vessels can become the home of bacteria or bacterial toxins.  These teeth become the chronic source of infection, the "foci of infection", as the bacteria move into the blood stream.  Some of the more toxic bacteria do not need oxygen to live inside those tiny vessels in a dead or dying tooth.

The root canal procedure entails the removal of the tooth's nerve and filling the entire nerve canal with with a root canal filler (a paste) and gutta-percha.  Unfortunately, all of those microscopic vessels in the now dead tooth cannot be 100% sealed off by this material.  Thus, the root canal can become prone to chronic infection which cannot be detected by X-ray and is most often painless.  A chronic infection anywhere in the body can release toxic substances that can damage health.  A dead or dying tooth can become a nest of toxic bacteria that constantly flows into the blood stream.  Such infections can place stress on the immune system and weaken health with long term ramifications if not corrected at an early stage.

Cavitations are a foci of infection that are often overlooked.  The teeth are not directly connected to the bone.  There is a connecting tissue called the periodontal tissue between the teeth and the bone.   This periodontal tissue connects the two together.  When a tooth is extracted part of the periodontal tissue remains which can be infected.  Then the gum "heals" over leaving a pocket of infection called a cavitation.  Again this infection is very difficult to detect and if left untreated can become a source of chronic infection similar to infected root canals.  Anyone who does not feel well after having dental extractions should consider visiting a biological dentist to determine if any cavitations remain.


Gum disease, if not treated, can lead to lost teeth.  The standard treatment is an unpleasant surgical scraping to remove the infection before any teeth fall out.  Please see our FAQ about gum disease. Analysis of the body and blood Ph and other laboratory tests may be required to determine if the typical surgery can be avoided which is also the more economical solution.  We also have some nutrition based treatments which in many cases will avoid the need for gum surgery.


Mis-alignment or stress of the jawbone is common.  People that have this problem will often hear a slight clicking sound as the jaw opens and closes.  It may be the result of an imperfect bite,  teeth missing, accidents or dental appliances or other reasons.  It can cause facial ticks, headaches, neck aches, fatigue, disturbed sleep and other symptoms.  The medical term for the jawbone is the temporo-mandibular joint and is located just below the ears.  Correction of the temporo-mandibular joint alignment often results in diminished symptoms for a patient.


Healthy teeth require many minerals that are no longer present in today's refined foods.  These minerals include calcium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, boron and manganese.  None of these elements are contained in refined sugar, white flour or white rice.  Sugar feeds the bacteria in the mouth that cause plaque and can destroy teeth.  Most cola drinks can damage tooth enamel.  They also contain phosphoric acid that binds with and removes calcium, magnesium and zinc from the body.  The result is bone loss, a common problem today.

The connection with dental health and nutrition is not new.  Almost 50 years ago books were written about the relationship between the modern diet and dental health.  It was found back then that whenever Western food replaced native natural foods that dental health declined quickly and severely.  The deficiencies in processed and refined foods of the required trace elements today are even greater than 50 years ago when this phenomena was first publicized.  In other words, we have gone from bad to worse from a nutritional standpoint.

Vitamin C, bioflavinoids and other nutrients are necessary for healthy gums.  Chewing is encouraged when eating raw hard foods such as carrots.  Whole grain breads will also encourage chewing which will improve the bite.  Many children wear braces for jaw alignment that may be corrected by thoroughly chewing natural foods.  Encouraging a child to chew completely will also aid digestion while the jaw is aligned by nature.
