Premier Holistic Dentist

Delve into the world of holistic dentistry with Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry), a leading name in Southern California's dental scene. Her unique holistic approach to dental care perceives dental health within the wider frame of overall well-being. Holistic dentistry is sometimes also referred to as “biological” or “biocompatible” dentistry, focusing on treating the individual holistically, not just addressing teeth and jaws.

In a perfect state of well-being, every component of our body synergistically operates, bolstered by appropriate nutritional practices. However, in today's world, this harmony is often disrupted by environmental influences, dietary choices, and the strain toxins exert on our bodily systems. Surprisingly, the root of many of these imbalances can be traced back to the mouth. While it might seem straightforward, numerous individuals grapple with chronic discomfort and ailments. They might find ephemeral relief in addressing the symptoms, but the root oral issues often remain unaddressed. Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) has dedicated her dental profession to be San Diego's go-to authority for holistic dental insights, guidance, and solutions.

The Ethos of Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry)' Holistic Approach to Dentistry

Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) believes that embracing holistic dentistry is paramount to prevent the widespread impact of dental infections and diseases on the entire body. She emphasizes a balanced diet rich in nutrients, proactive steps to circumvent root canal issues, and steering clear of mercury (amalgam) fillings. In cases of tooth extraction, it's crucial to prevent cavitation, potential hotspots for infection. The use of amalgam is sidestepped in holistic dentistry due to toxicity concerns, and its replacement with aesthetic, natural-looking bonded materials is both a health and cosmetic preference. After all, mercury not only poses potential health risks but also detracts from a natural smile.

Innovations in Fillings: Beyond the Traditional

While composite fillings are a common choice to address cavitation and restore teeth, some may react adversely to its components, such as methyl methacrylates (MMA). Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) always prioritizes patient health by conducting allergy tests before commencing restoration. For more durable solutions, our practice employs porcelain inlays, onlays, full ceramic crowns, and veneers. A patient's medical history, combined with x-rays and occlusion evaluations, guide the optimal material choice in line with our holistic philosophy.

Holistic Procedures at Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry)’ San Diego Dental Practice

Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) staunchly believes that oral health intertwines deeply with overall health. Her San Diego-based practice combines nature-inspired methodologies with modern technology for unmatched results. She uses ozone where appropriate and offers metal-free porcelain crowns, and lab-fabricated inlays and onlays, keeping the patient's holistic needs at the forefront.

Biocompatibility Testing: A Proactive Approach

For a personalized dental experience, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) recommends Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT) - an extensive blood test screening for reactions to over 1800 dental materials. Patients who've had multiple mercury fillings might benefit from Doctor Data's hair testing for mercury toxicity. Concerning dental implants, she advocates for the MELISA test, beneficial for those with delayed hypersensitivity to amalgams or metal-infused restorations.

Composite Materials sans BPA

BPA-free composite materials are Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry)'s top recommendation, considering the allergies and asthma issues linked to Bisphenol A and Phthalates in a few cases.

Whether it's mercury-free fillings, material compatibility, advanced mercury isolation methods, understanding nutrition's role in oral health, or recognizing the interconnection of gum diseases with other health issues, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry)’s approach is all-encompassing.

It builds upon the foundational knowledge of dentistry and human anatomy, then carefully selects the least toxic and most advantageous materials and techniques. The emphasis is on nurturing the complete individual, moving beyond mere tooth care or standalone oral health. Holistic dentistry merges age-old wisdom from medicine, science, and nutrition. Through addressing oral challenges with this integrative approach, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) and her team at our San Diego Dental Office illuminate a path of renewed health and optimism for patients not just in San Diego, but extending well beyond.
