Whole Body Dentistry

The terminology used to describe alternative dental care has gone through many changes in recent decades.  Mercury free dentistry is better described as mercury safe dentistry.  Holistic dentistry, biological dentistry, and whole mouth dentistry is better described as Whole Body Dentistry.  After all, the mouth is very well attached to the body!  This approach to dental care focuses on the connection between the health of your smile and the health of your entire body.

The state of your teeth and gums can have a significant impact on your overall health. In fact, gum disease can lead to systemic conditions, such as heart disease, strokes and low birth weight in infants. Dr. Clark is trained in standard dental care, but he does not perform treatments simply because they are traditional. By minimizing your exposure to hazards such as mercury and radiation, he can also minimize the risk of developing other serious health conditions. 

Featured Treatments

 

Mercury/Amalgam Filling Replacement

We can safely replace mercury/amalgam fillings with non-toxic mercury-free alternatives that blend with the surrounding dental tissue for a natural appearance.

Orthodontics

Working with new concepts in orthodontics which allow for an increase in bone volume from an early age when crowding is just beginning. This allows adequate arch length for all the teeth and in some cases braces will not even be needed.

Sleep Apnea

Dr. Clark is a certified Vivos provider. Using this treatment he is now able to expand the upper arch creating more space for the tongue and allowing the lower jaw to move forward, providing a permanent opening of the airway for more normal breathing and sleep. Getting adequate oxygen is being shown to solve many other health issues.

Extractions

By using PRF therapy to expedite healing and bone growth following tooth removal, we can help patients begin experiencing the benefits of a healthy smile sooner.

Dentures

Dr. Clark does not take short cuts which affect the quality of dentures. Using standard, reliable methods of denture construction, and a quality- conscious laboratory, he provides the patient with a denture which looks natural and feels and functions comfortably.

 

Dental Implants

Dr. Clark places and restores Bicon® short implants to replace lost tooth roots and provide exceptional support for crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Our Full List of Services

The Impact of Mercury Fillings

As part of his research with the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Dr. Roger Eichman investigated the short- and long-term effects of exposure to mercury in amalgam fillings. 

My brother and husband have been going to Dr. Clark for some time now and we have found his service to be excellent.

Satisfied Patient

Technology

Ozone Treatment

Medical-grade oxygen (95 percent oxygen, five percent ozone) is an excellent sterilizer that we use to eliminate pathogens while leaving surrounding tissues undisturbed.

PRF

PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN is created using a small sample of the patient's blood. When applied to treatment areas, the growth factors expedite healing following extractions and other procedures.

The Ögram System

Dr. Clark uses the Ögram System, a special method of tooth extraction that requires less force and minimizes bone loss. Maximum preservation of jawbone tissue helps ensure successful implant placement.

Soft Tissue Laser For Gum Disease

By using a soft tissue laser instead of traditional tools, we can provide treatment such as reduction of periodontal pockets in greater comfort, with a minimized risk of infection and a shorter recovery time.
