How Dental Implants Can Save Your Mouth

A wonderful thing about living in this day and age are the many advances we have made in medicine and science that allow us to accomplish things that were science fiction just a generation ago. Today, a dental implant can be as realistic as your natural tooth, both functionally and aesthetically. I proudly offer dental implants at my San Diego practice, giving patients the opportunity to replace missing teeth and restore their dental function. […]

Dental Anxiety Treatment – Prep for Your Trip to the Dentist

Anxiety is a common emotion to feel before your annual trip to the dentist. Not knowing whether or not you will have a cavity, or score low on the flossing scale can get anyone all wound up before they even step foot into the office. In my San Diego holistic dentistry practice, I work with multiple patients and assist them in curbing their dental anxiety before and during their visit. There are various methods and procedures I have found to be successful with my patients in the past. In preparing for your visit to the dentist, here are a few things to help you clear your dental anxiety. […]

“Adult Braces” Is Not an Oxymoron

I meet many adults who, for whatever reason, never wore braces as a child or teen and now wish they had or are in need of them again as an adult. We all want to look our best, and we all know a great smile goes a long way. Yet, over and over again, I hear my patients say, “I want that perfect smile – I just don’t want to have to wear big shiny braces!” At my San Diego orthodontics practice, I offer several subtle options to help you achieve a straighter grin.

Handling Pain Holistically

More and more people are waking to the awareness that our bodies are not comprised of compartmentalized systems that work independently of one another. It is true that modern medicine has made incredible advances thanks to the study and comprehension of how our nervous, digestive, circulatory, and other systems operate. But these systems all work together to support the health of one body. They are integrated, and damage to one system can have far-reaching impact to the rest of the body. This is the basis for holistic dentistry at our San Diego practice. […]

Swish & Gargle: The Benefits of Mouthwash

Do you swish? Gargle? Irrigate your mouth with a bright blue or green liquid that makes you pucker? If mouthwash isn’t part of your dental hygiene routine, perhaps I can provide some compelling evidence for why it should be! It’s important to note that I called mouthwash a “part of” your hygiene. Don’t be fooled – a few good swishes of mouthwash alone won’t keep your teeth and gums healthy. But, along with a regimen of attentive brushing and flossing, it can and should be an important piece of an overall solution to lifelong dental health. As your San Diego family dentist, let me walk you through the benefits of mouthwash. […]

Part 2 – Acid, Food, and You: A Holistic Dentistry Solution

In Part 1 of this series, we learned about pH levels and how our dental and overall bodily health are interconnected. This is why I offer holistic dentistry at my San Diego practice : what affects one part of the body affects the whole thing! Today, I will discuss some highly acidic foods and drinks, and provide some helpful tips on how to minimize their impact on your dental health. […]

Acid, Food, and You: A Holistic Dentistry Solution (Part 1)

It’s important to remember that the human body is one interconnected unit. External influences that might seem isolated, such as the sun on your skin or a blow to the head, can have far-reaching impacts throughout the body. Our teeth are no different, which is why I offer holistic dentistry at my San Diego practice. […]

Understanding the Causes of Sleep Apnea

Apnea is the Greek word for “without breath”, so sleep apnea is sleep without breathing. Sleep apnea is very common and often becomes more frequent as age increases. If an individual stops breathing during the night, oxygen levels in the body fall. If this continues to occur frequently, blood oxygen levels could plummet to serious health consequences. Therefore, sleep apnea should not be taken lightly and should be addressed by those affected. Fortunately, I can often treat mild to moderate sleep apnea at my San Diego practice. […]

Benefits of Dental Implants Over Dentures

Are you considering various dental treatments to cope with tooth loss? Today I wanted to discuss the benefits of dental implants at my San Diego practice, especially compared to traditional, removable dentures. First of all, I use metal-free materials when restoring dental implants and I place a particular emphasis on artistic technique to ensure that your teeth always look natural and feel great. Also, keep in mind that implants can be used effectively to help with replacing one tooth or a full set of teeth depending on your particular needs. […]
