Biological Dentistry

There is a growing trend of interest in this field along with natural health.

                         Biological dentists recognize the close
connection between dental health and such areas as nutrition, body structure,
the cranial system, the immune system and the central nervous system.  Most are very concerned about the
materials used in dental fillings, the safety of root canals, cavitations and
holistic approaches to gum disease. 
Many are interested in nutritional aspects of dentistry and the
alignment of the temporo-mandibular joint.
dentists may use electro-acupuncture machines or other methods to detect subtle
dental infections.  Antibiotic
therapy may be ineffective against these conditions because circulation is poor
in these teeth.  Dead or dying
teeth make excellent hosts for bacteria. 
If a dental infection cannot be healed with antibiotics or other means,
extraction of the tooth may be the best idea.
