Holistic, Biological Dentistry Near Atlanta, CA

People often mistakenly believe that dentistry and medicine are two completely separate fields. However, this false dichotomy is more a result of tradition than actual science. Numerous studies have shown that oral health and overall body health are actually very closely linked.

Reinhold Voll, a German doctor, believes that the majority of health problems are caused by mouth conditions.

Now, dentistry is beginning to see the connection between gum disease and other conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, and so forth. Most dentists also recognize that poor oral health can greatly interfere with a person’s emotional well-being and overall quality of life.

Biological Dentistry: How Is It Different?

Biological dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the overall health of the patient, rather than just the teeth. This approach to dentistry takes into account the whole body and how dental health can impact overall health. Biological dentists often use more natural materials and treatments, and they may avoid using certain chemicals or procedures that could be harmful to the patient.

Dentistry that adheres to biological principles is, by definition, holistic. The functions of teeth, gums, and mouth are not considered separately. Each of them, including physical, energetic, and spiritual parts, is understood to be part of a dynamic whole. Biological dentists treat you as a whole person – body, mind, and spirit.

Biological dentistry is a type of dental practice that takes into account both traditional healing methods and modern-day dental techniques.

Biological dentistry is an approach to dental care that focuses on the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. This type of dentistry looks at the mouth not as a separate entity, but as part of the whole body, which includes the physical, energetic, and spiritual aspects.

We use state-of-the-art techniques and tools, including lasers, dental ozone, and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin). In addition, we support all types of dental treatments with practices such as nutrition, acupuncture, neural therapy, homeopathy, light therapy, and others.

We focus on preventive measures and education. Helping you make informed decisions about your dental care is our top priority. We also want to arm you with the knowledge you need to maintain optimal oral health for the rest of your life.

Biological dentistry is gentle, protecting the teeth from any trauma that could cause early damage. For more invasive procedures like fillings, crowns, or implants, we only use biocompatible materials. Dentures (partial or full), orthodontic devices, and oral appliances all fall under the same category.

We offer mercury-free, fluoride-free, and mercury-safe dentistry, which is also known as biological dentistry. Our dental office follows strict safety protocols when removing amalgam fillings to protect both the patient and the environment. We never place “silver” amalgam fillings. Whenever a patient has amalgam fillings, we never polish them or treat them in ways that would increase mercury vapor release, since this neurotoxin can be harmful when inhaled.

The use of mercury fillings has been associated with a number of chronic health problems, including root canal infections and jawbone osteonecrosis – also known as “cavitations.” At our dental practice, we are very familiar with treating patients who have chronic health issues, and we routinely work with integrative physicians, naturopaths, chiropractors, osteopaths, and other healers to coordinate our patients’ overall healing journeys.

We prioritize our patients as individuals with agency, not passive patients. Biological dentists get to know you by your dental and medical history, as well as what you value and care about in life.

A biological dentist will not tell you what treatment to choose. We will provide you with information about the advantages and disadvantages of each option, so that you can make the health decisions that are right for you and your family.

We always welcome new patients and their families at Dazzling Smiles. Our dental center is eco-friendly, relaxing, and comfortable – perfect for your family to visit. Contact us today and find out how a holistic dental approach can make a difference in your life.

About Dazzling Smiles

The decisions made in our biological dental practice always have the big picture in mind. Instead of just treating a dental issue, Dr. McKenzie chooses techniques, materials, and care based on whole-body health. The goal of our practice is to provide effective dental treatments in the safest and healthiest way possible. We are able to do this by making specific choices.

  • We do not use dental amalgam for cavity repair because it contains mercury.
  • Cavities are fixed with tooth-colored resin and ceramic materials.
  • Ceramic is also used in dental implant treatment, a method introduced by Dr. McKenzie in the state of Georgia.
  • Fluoride products are not used in our office, nor recommended by Dr. McKenzie.
  • Dr. McKenzie recommends using gum treatments and oral hygiene products that contain all-natural essential oils and healing herbs instead of potentially harsh chemicals.
  • We take care to ensure that patients are safe and healthy at all times.
  • We offer the best possible solutions to dental concerns by keeping up with the latest developments, discoveries, and research in biological dentistry.

Dazzling Smiles is proud to be the holistic choice for residents of Atlanta, GA, and beyond including Cartersville. We invite you and your family to experience the difference that a natural, biological, minimally invasive approach to dental care can offer, and we look forward to meeting you soon!

About

About Atlanta, GA

Atlanta ( at-LAN-t\u0259) is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Georgia. With a population of 498,715 living within the city limits, it is the eighth-most populous city in the Southeast and 38th most populous city in the United States according to the 2020 U.S. census. It is the core of the much larger Atlanta metropolitan area, which is home to 6,144,050 people, making it the eighth-largest metropolitan area in the United States. It is the seat of Fulton County, the most populous county in Georgia. Situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains at an elevation of just over 1,000 feet (300 m) above sea level, it features unique topography that includes rolling hills, lush greenery, and the most dense urban tree coverage of any major city in the United States.

Atlanta was originally founded as the terminus of a major state-sponsored railroad, but it soon became the convergence point among several railroads, spurring its rapid growth. One of those railroads included the Western and Atlantic Railroad, from which the name “Atlanta” is derived, signifying the city’s growing reputation as a major hub of transportation. During the American Civil War, it served a strategically important role for the Confederacy until it was captured in 1864. The city was almost entirely burnt to the ground during General William T. Sherman’s March to the Sea. However, the city rebounded dramatically in the post-war period and quickly became a national industrial center and the unofficial capital of the “New South”. After World War II, it also became manufacturing and technology hub. During the 1950s and 1960s, it became a major organizing center of the American Civil Rights Movement, with Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, and many other locals becoming prominent figures in the movement’s leadership. In the modern era, Atlanta has stayed true to its reputation as a major center of transportation, with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport becoming the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic in 1998 (a position it has held every year since, with the exception of 2020 as a result of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic).

With a gross domestic product (GDP) of $406 billion, Atlanta has the tenth largest economy of cities in the U.S. and the 20th largest in the world. Its economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors in industries including transportation, aerospace, logistics, healthcare, news and media operations, film and television production, information technology, finance, and biomedical research and public policy. The gentrification of some its neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Summer Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century with the growth of the Atlanta Beltline. This has altered its demographics, politics, aesthetics, and culture.
