the true meaning of biologic dentistry is that they will put nothing in the body that harms it. but, it began in the late 1800s when mercury was found to b harmful (see below). of course there is really no safe permanent fixtures that can b put in the mouth, but biologic dentists use was is the least toxic. also, a "true" biologic dentist does not believe in root canals and when they pull a tooth, they remove the periodontal ligament. they do not do implants and they don't take dead bone or dead bovine bone and try to build your jaw up. see below on what i wrote about implants. they don't use nitic oxide, as it is a neuro-toxin. they don't use novacaine, it is a nuero-toxin and it constricts the blood vessles so that dentists r able to virtually work w/ no blood, and when extracting teeth, this does not allow for a good blood socket and greatly increase the chance of forming a cavitation. that is biologic dentistry in a nutshell.
implants r metal and they give off electricity. a lady measured nearly 400 miliamps of postive current and 30 negative in our office. she spent $9,000 on her implants and we removed them. the dr said she could have ran her stereo off her teeth. in addition, the body rejects any foreign thing we put in it. sometimes it is a small reaction, sometimes big, but it varies among ppl. nevertheless, the body does issue an immune response and will build antibodies. over time, that can cause dental implants to loosen and pull away from the bone. this has happened. as u can imagine, that would not b a good thing. i suspect this is y they say implants last 15 to 20 yrs. there r many nerves and meridians, also; u just never know what can happen. but, i can definitely tell u that metal that produces current is not good to put close to the brain.
BIOLOGICAL DENTISTRY by Gerald H. Smith
The inception of an organized biologic concept to the practice of dentistry had its origin in the late 1800's when the National Dental Association recognized the harmful effects of mercury fillings and mandated non-use by its members. This warning has finally been recognized and acted upon by several foreign countries that have either banned the use of mercury fillings or are in the process: Sweden, Germany, and Austria. The next major contribution occurred in the 1930's when a dentist, Weston Price, teamed up with an anthropologist, Francis Pottenger to document the link between tooth decay and bad bites to the processing of food (as presented in their well documented book: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration). This as well as other research provided the basis for biologic dentistry to utilize nutritional concepts in the treatment of oral disease. The 1940's witnessed the unheeded dental and medical communities' scientific warnings of the dangers of fluoride. After dismal results and many painful lessons 98% of Western Europe have banned the use of fluoride in their drinking water. Many other major countries have followed in their footsteps: Japan, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Poland, India and China. The third major discovery involved focal infections from root canaled teeth and cavitational problems (residual infections in the bone following tooth extraction) placing a burden on the body's immune system with direct targeting of organs. Additional discoveries that span the era of the 1930's to present, by numerous researchers have helped link the distress from imbalances in the craniosacral system and teeth. This latter connection will prove to be one of the most important discoveries in the history of dental medicine. This evolutionary transition has awakened a new consciousness and infused a high level of excitement among biologic dental practition- ers worldwide. Biologic dentistry offers the dentist a golden opportunity to practice at the highest professional level and the patient the chance to resolve their health issues.(www.icnr.com)
