Holistic dentistry can be differentiated from traditional dentistry in the sense that it doesn't exclusively focus on the oral cavity. Holistic dentist's provide natural solutions that promote your overall wellness and dental health.
Dr. Pahlavani educates her patients on their diet and how nutrition prevents tooth decay and gum disease. Teaching patient's how to modify their diet and their cravings for sugar can be substantial in their overall health and wellness, which subsequently is displayed in the overall health of their teeth and gums.
An important aspect in holistic dentistry is the use of all porcelain and zirconia materials instead of nickel, cadmium and aluminum under crowns and bridges. At Pahlavani Dental we do not use traditional toxic dental materials such as Flouride and Amalgams. Holistic dentists use a carefull protocol for removing existing amalgams that eliminates the risk of inhaling or swallowing these particles.

At Pahlavani Dental we do not believe in using silver or amalgam fillings, which contain 50% mercury, and is a harmful neurotoxin. These fillings have been used for the last 150 years. Unlike traditional dentists Dr. Pahlavani uses resin composite fillings or tooth colored fillings which are safer, natural looking, and biocompatible. As a biological dentist, Dr. Pahlavani views the gums and teeth as a interdependet part of the entire body.
There are many advantages of using resin composite fillings such as:
Easily matches tooth color
Supports tooth structure
Helps prevent breakage of natural tooth structure unlike metal fillings
Almost no risk of allergic reaction
