What should I know about fluoride?
Fluoride is dangerous in spite of all we read about how safe it is. Scientific research indicates the harmful effects of fluoride.

See these web sites and more details in my book:

Adverse Health and Behavior from Silicoflourides
Fluoride Action Network (FAN) News and info
International Society for fluoride Research Journal
What should I know about a root canal?
A root canal is the removal of the nerve from the main inside of the tooth. This opening is then cleaned to remove any remaining nerve tissue. The empty canal space is then filled with gutta-purcha and a sealant.

What should we do to replace missing teeth?
Two ways to accomplish “replacement of missing teeth”
1) A permanent bridge can be bonded to teeth on each side of the space using unshaded BellGlass, (most compatible).
2) Using an all-plastic, heat cured (plastic partial) that is removable, and doesn’t contain cadmium, making it more compatible than the standard pink plastic
and Dr. Curt Pendergrass.


What should you know about Sealants?
Some dentists believe sealants placed on the chewing surface of young patient’s teeth will prevent decay.

For further information see:

“Exposure to estrogen-like agents especially during fetal or early post natal development can trigger gender bending changes (Science News: 07/15/99, page 44),
or reproductive havoc (Science News: 01/2 2/94 page 56).
They may also foster cancer in reproductive organs such as the breast. (Science News: 07/3/99, page 10.)”

My personal feelings about sealants: they should not be used. If the tooth is decayed, it should be repaired with compatible filling material. If the tooth is not decayed, keep it clean, along with good nutrition for the natural life of the tooth.


What should you know about TMJ pain?
TMJ pain is most often caused by spasms in the muscles that help to open and close the jaw. Patients can do a simple physical therapy technique, in most cases, that keeps the area free from pain. Read more about the exercises in my upcoming book, Rescued By My Dentist.

Other causes of TMJ pain can be an imbalance of the bite, a filling that is too high, a bridge or partial the does not fit well. Even a food allergy can cause this type of pain. Notice if the pain suddenly and repeatedly occurs shortly after you eat certain foods. Often you can find the answer faster than anyone else by keeping detailed records of what you eat.


What should you know about cost?

Healthy dentistry is expensive and typically not covered by most insurance plans. And not all dentists, even holistic ones, are well trained in dental health. It is therefore best to select a dentist who will place correct filling material the very first time and use low-speed drilling. If you have many metal fillings, or have been ill for a long time, consider a dentist who will follow these procedures.

Removal of the metals is not always the answer for everyone’s dental or medical problem.

However, it just might be your key to wellness.
