Maintaining healthy gums by treating the oral ecology (bacteria), found under the gums, is not only important for the teeth, but also for overall health. These bacteria can be broken down into 3 different categories: Healthy, Active Infection or Aggressive Infection.
Keeping a healthy mouth goes beyond the traditional brushing, flossing, rinsing with a mouth wash, and receiving dental cleanings where the bacteria is scraped off. It is important to address the environment or ‘soil’ which supports the harmful bacteria which can contribute to plaque build-up on the teeth, gingivitis, bone loss, cavities as well as causing inflammation in the body which has ‘down stream’ effects such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc.
The initial step is for a plaque (bacteria) sample to be taken from the gums and analyzed using our in-office microscope. Appropriate individualized treatment is recommended. Treatment is continued until the bacteria or ‘soil’ is healthy.
Using a natural approach to target the root cause of this inflammation (i.e., harmful bacteria) is our means of treatment, which consequently improves overall health in general.
Dentist Review – Ali Farahani DDS:
I have had gum problems for the past 35 years and have spent thousands of dollars with periodontists in an effort to “maintain” my gums and thus my teeth. Have used numerous devices to try to “super clean” my teeth and have had gum grafts and other surgery, yet the gums continued to deteriorate, albeit slowly. Moved to Stratford and discovered Dr. Farahani who uses a gentler naturopathic approach. No more freezing and root scraping, but just a powerful jet of natural herbal “disinfectant”. Two years of four visits a year and the gum disease is CURED. Imagine!
Now I hope gradually to get rid of all the “metal” (mercury) fillings and preserve all of my teeth for many years to come.
