At BioDental Healing, we operate differently from the traditional Western dentist that accepts the use of fluoride in their work – as well as advocating it for use at home. Our fluoride free dentist, Dr. Villarreal, does not advocate, promote, or use fluoride in any of our work.
Our holistic approach factors in the mind, body, and spirit to achieve a healthy balance. Achieving this balance is very difficult if fluoride is introduced into the body.
Why No Fluoride?
While fluoride has been continuously approved for use by the CDA and ADA, this does not mean it has no chance of damaging your body in some way. Large-scale studies have shown consistent high dose fluoride ingestion is linked with:
- Brittle bones and enamel
- Dental fluorosis
- Hip fractures
- Kidney stones
- Lower IQ in children
As for fluoride effectiveness in tooth decay prevention – the studies that have been performed on this subject matter were not randomized, controlled, or blinded studies. They have failed to show any significant reduction in preventing tooth decay.
