Our services and treatments focus on treating gum disease and tooth decay without using harsh materials or chemicals that can adversely affect your health, like Amalgam fillings.

Dangers of Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings, or silver fillings, are composed of 50 percent mercury, making them the most toxic materials used by general dentists. Mercury is the most toxic, non-radioactive element found on the planet. Research published on the effects of mercury has shown that it is even more toxic than lead, arsenic or cadmium. A biological dentist realizes the risk to their patients that may occur years or decades after mercury-containing fillings are placed in their teeth. Even mothers of infants have been shown to pass the mercury from their fillings to their babies.Just as dental health is an important part of any individual’s overall health, using nontoxic and systemically compatible materials to perform dental work is an important factor in creating a healthy mouth and a healthy body.

About Our Practice

BioDental Healing is not your ordinary dental office. We believe in a different approach to dentistry – holistic dentistry. Holistic dentistry aims at helping you enhance the overall health of your mind, body, and spirit through the power of alternative dental care.

Mercury Removal Newbury Park

If you’re looking for mercury removal Newbury Park, then you probably already understand the issues with mercury fillings. For example, if you have a silver filling, every time you chew a small amount of mercury from your filling (about 2-20 micrograms a day) is released into your body. Mercury is poisonous to your body and should not be in your mouth.

Why You Need Mercury Removal Newbury Park

  • Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to man. Additionally, most mercury amalgam fillings are made with up to as much as 50% mercury.
  • Mercury poisoning can cause a number of health issues, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis.
  • Mercury fillings are banned in other countries like Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.

TMJ Treatment Newbury Park

Looking for a TMJ Treatment in Newbury Park? Consider the biological dental approach. Disorders of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) are a group of conditions that cause pain in and around the TMJ and nearby muscles. Clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth puts an additional strain on the muscles of the jaw causing inflammation. TMJ problems can affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.

Symptoms of TMJ disorders

Pain is one of the most common symptoms of TMJ Disorders. TMJ pain is often described as a dull ache in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear. In other cases, some people report no pain but instead experience jaw dysfunction. Other symptoms can include:

  • pain in the neck and shoulders
  • migraine and/or chronic headache
  • jaw muscle stiffness
  • limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • painful clicking, popping or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth
  • a bite that feels “off”
  • ear pain, pressure and/or ringing in the ears
  • diminished hearing
  • dizziness and vision problems
  • tooth sensitivity

BioDental Healing TMJ Treatment In Newbury Park

Stabilization splints (biteplate, nightguard) are the most widely used treatments for TMJ disorders. Additional holistic treatments like gentle jaw stretching and relaxation exercises can also help.

Our safety standards are held very high here @ BioDental Healing. As a result, we steer clear from any questionable chemicals or ingredients such as BPA, which stands for “bisphemol A”, an industrial synthetic chemical that has been used in plastics and resins since 1960. We don’t believe any amount of plastic belongs in the mouth, which is why we offer both BPA free fillings & BPA free dental night guards.

BPA free dental night guards are a great way to treat issues with TMJ and chronic teeth grinding because they are non-invasive and do not require any form of surgery.

Grinding the teeth is an area of concern because if not treated may come with serious consequences to your teeth such as chips & cracks, tongue indentation, flattening of teeth, more frequent headaches, and you could even strip off the enamel.

To learn more about our treatment options for TMJ and/or teeth grinding, either call our office @ (805) 375-2233 or conveniently contact us online.

What Is A Meridian Tooth Chart

Here at BioDental Healing, we rely on the Meridian Tooth Chart as one of our resources when assessing your dental health. The Meridian Tooth Chart is based on acupuncture meridians, pathways of energy that span across interrelated body parts, glands, and tissues. Each tooth is associated with a particular meridian, through which energy flows.

The Relationship Between Teeth & Vital Organs

Every tooth has a meridian going to it. There are 12 meridians in total, and each of the 32 teeth are represented on them. The bicuspids share one meridian; the molars share another; the anterior (front) teeth, yet another. The maxillary bicuspids share with the mandibular molars, and the maxillary molars share with the mandibular bicuspids.

Why You Should Choose Biological Dentistry

Here at BioDental Healing, we pride ourselves on our biological dentistry practice and how it takes into account our patients’ whole-body health. The word “biological” refers to life, and we respect and honor all living things.

What Is Biological Dentistry?

Biological dentistry is conservative dentistry. The aim is to be minimally invasive yet appropriately active. It combines the techniques used in traditional dentistry with a focus on using non-toxic dental materials based on the belief that dental toxins can have an effect on your overall health. A biological dentist recognizes the link between oral health and that of the entire body. Diseases and toxic materials that exist in the mouth can negatively impact systems throughout the body. For instance, amalgam has been the traditional material used in fillings to replace decay in the tooth. Amalgam is avoided by biological dentists because of its mercury content, along with other metals, which are considered to be toxic.

Qualified Biological Dentists in Newbury Park

At BioDental Healing, our caring and qualified biological dentists are conveniently located in Newbury Park, offering convenient access to patients in all of Ventura County. For those interested in the services of biological dentists in Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, and Simi Valley, we are within fast and easy driving distance. Some of the services that you can attain from a biological dentist include the removal of toxic metals that have been used during previous dental treatment by a traditional dentist. Routine dental work is also performed with the use of nontoxic materials. As a leading holistic dentist, we provide unconventional dentistry with a focus on the overall health of the patient which includes the contribution of nutrition to healthy teeth and the treatment of gum disease, bite issues and alignment problems.

Our Mission

We believe our job is to help you achieve your best physical, dental and emotional health as safely as possible and in as short a time period as possible. We offer conscious sedation and auxiliary treatments as part of our protocol to help achieve your optimal health. Contact us today to schedule an appointment, or learn more about our biological dental practice.

The Importance Of Dental Material Compatibility Testing

Why You Need Dental Material Tests: Allergies.

Some of the common materials that can induce an allergy include metals like gold, nickel, chromium, cobalt, palladium, and mercury compounds. Other metals can also be toxic under certain circumstances.

SOME OF THE BIOCOMPATIBILITY LAB TESTS THAT MAY BE RECOMMENDED INCLUDE:

 

 

With over 2,000 dental materials available today in use across 15,000+ dental products, it is necessary to know how a recommended treatment material reacts with a patient’s body to ensure optimal health, the longevity of the treatment, and low risk of adverse reactions. Since your biochemistry is unique to you, a dental material that works well for another person may not necessarily be right for you.

As a biological dentist, Dr. Villarreal will test any dental materials before proceeding with your treatment to avoid complications. Please visit Biodental Healing in Newbury Park for your consultation or to learn more about biocompatibility testing.

What’s Wrong With Amalgam Fillings?

According to the FDA, Dental amalgam contains elemental mercury. It releases low levels of mercury in the form of a vapor that can be inhaled and absorbed by the lungs. Under their standards, dental amalgam poses potential health risks.

Why We Never Use Amalgam:

Amalgam fillings cause unnecessary exposure to the electrical currents that are created whenever the various metals in fillings and crowns make contact inside your mouth. There is a growing agreement that these currents are potentially harmful.

Amalgam Harms the Environment.

A large majority of dental contamination comes from the use of mercury. Mercury occurs naturally as a sulfide and in many different minerals. It is estimated that roughly 20,000-30,000 tons of mercury are expelled into the environment as waste as a result of daily human activities every year. When it comes to amalgam dental filling placement, roughly 46% of the amalgam is used while the rest is waste. *

We have implemented a very high-tech device into our plumbing system known as the Solometex Hg5, which is capable of amalgam separation to prevent it from reaching local water systems and the ocean after removal from your mouth. This is all part of our commitment to practicing Mercury Safe Protocol.

Please visit our state of the art facility in Newbury Park so we may discuss how to safely remove this toxic material from your body. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our Decision to Be An Amalgam Free Dental Office

Dental schools still teach dentists to use mercury silver amalgam fillings and the American Dental Association (ADA) continues to tell the public they are safe. However, recently more and more questions have been raised about the safety of the mercury vapor released from amalgams in patient’s teeth.

This has resulted in a controversy and an ongoing debate about them – with some dentists saying they are safe and some saying they aren’t. This has now evolved to the point where over 50% of practicing dentists are no longer putting amalgam fillings in their patients’ teeth. Also, of interest is that three countries, Norway, Sweden and Denmark have banned the use of mercury amalgam fillings in the dental practice.

 

 

In addition, because it has been proven that high levels of toxic mercury vapor are released when amalgam fillings are unsafely removed, I’ve made my office as occupationally mercury safe as possible.

“To that purpose, I use state-of-the art technology, equipment, and safe removal protocols, to protect my patients, my staff, myself and the environment from excessive, and unnecessary, occupational exposure to mercury at my office. Thus, I’ve now made my practice both mercury free (amalgam free) and mercury safe.”

Becoming both an amalgam filling free and mercury safe dental practice was my decision, but I believe that deciding whether to have your existing amalgam fillings removed and replaced must be your choice. Because I place great importance on Patient Education, I feel it is my responsibility to educate my patients about the relationship of oral to overall issues and to provide them with the information required for them to make educated decisions. That is why we provide education and why we also encourage patients to go to the ADA’s website (www.ada.org) to learn more about the pros and cons of removing, or keeping, these fillings. But again, we want to make it clear that the decision to remove and replace these fillings can only be made by you.

 

Yours in health,

David Villarreal, DDS
