Whether you come to us for a simple exam and cleaning, a complete smile makeover, or anything in between, our team takes a holistic, biological approach to your dental care.
We do dentistry with your whole body health in mind. Each and every procedure we do is done in a way that supports your overall wellness.
This requires that we do more than just treat symptoms. We identify and treat root causes.
Biocompatible, Biological Dentistry
Biological dentistry is a holistic dental approach that recognizes the influence that oral health has on overall health, both physically and energetically.
So we go the extra mile to ensure that we use only biocompatible materials, especially when repairing or replacing teeth. We do not place “silver” mercury amalgam fillings, nor any other metal restorations. The composite resins we use to make tooth-colored fillings are fluoride-free and BPA-free. We do not use fluoride but offer a more comprehensive approach that emphasizes nutrition, holistic hygiene, ozone, and other more natural means that honor your active role in keeping your mouth disease-free.
When a patient chooses to have their mercury fillings replaced with biocompatible restorations, we follow strict safety protocols to minimize exposure to that potent neurotoxin.
Dr. Parsi is accredited in biological dentistry by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT), and is certified by the IAOMT in their Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, or SMART.
Because of his accreditation, Dr. Parsi is also well aware of how hidden oral infections can impact overall health. Issues such as lingering infection in root canal teeth and jawbone cavitations have been known to contribute to a wide array of medical issues, including autoimmune and neurological disorders and enigmatic conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and multiple chemical sensitivities.
Having treated many complex mouth/body cases over the years, Dr. Parsi is both familiar and comfortable working with their physicians and other healthcare providers to coordinate care. We always want to be sure to address the dental issues in such a way as to not aggravate any systemic conditions but pave the way toward welcome, uneventful healing.
Your Bite Can Affect Your Health, Too
Of course, these are only some of the ways in which oral and overall health intersect. One often overlooked one is the health of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), parafunctional habits such as bruxing (habitual clenching and grinding, often during sleep), and even the bite can affect a person’s mouth/body health.
The bite, after all, sits at the top of the postural chain that runs from your head through your spine to your feet. When one part of this skeletal system is out of alignment, other parts are affected.
The result is typically chronic headaches and other upper body, face, and back pain, amongst other woes. Many people live with such pain for years, never realizing that the root cause of the problem is in the bite.
Simply by correcting the bite, Dr. Parsi has helped many patients over the years say goodbye to such pain for good.
