Holistic Dentistry Basics


In traditional dentistry, treating root canal infections are done by removing infected tissues in the visible root canal and filling them with inert gutta percha. It may relieve symptoms in some cases, but it also leaves a dead tooth in the body and a lot of microbes in the microscopic channels of the dentin. Thus, in the future, the body’s immune system is compromised by the microbes in the dentin, and they can attack the body. The tooth becomes a focus of infection and may spread to the rest of the body.

La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry, a San Diego holistic dentist’s practice, is the most experienced dental practice in using ozone therapy in treating root canal infections—an alternative root canal treatment. We’ve treated many root canal infections with alternative root canal treatment successfully. In the following series, we will report a few cases to educate and spread this wonderful therapy of using ozone and homeopathic remedies to enhance the body’s immune system and let teeth revive their own vitality. This is a true holistic dentist’s approach.

Alternative Root Canal Treatment and Ozone Therapy,Case #3


Susan, a 46 year-old female, hadn’t seen a dentist in over four years and was suffering from a toothache in the lower right area of her mouth. On a dental visit in December 2010, a big cavity was found on #31 in the lower right 2nd molar. The X-ray showed infection on the bottom of the root. Her dentist suggested root canal treatment (RCT), but she didn’t want to have the RCT. She was looking for a San Diego Holistic Dentistwho is experienced in ozone therapy and she came to visit me. She was asking if there was anything I could do as an alternative. After examination, I found that the cavity was very deep. I told her that without physically removing the infected cavity I would not be able to see how much the nerve was involved. I provided her with the following choices:

If the cavity did not involve the nerve – meaning no nerve exposure the treatments were

Ozone treatment of the cavity
Fill the cavity
Ozone injection into the jawbone around the root tip plus Guna homeopathy remedies.
If cavity penetrated the nerve, meaning there was nerve exposure the treatments were:

RCT - conventional RCT plus ozonated water irrigation and ozone gas infusing each canal.
Follow-up in six months. If the infection at the root tip didn’t heal, then four weekly ozone therapy treatments, injecting ozone into the jawbone around the root tips area were required.
She was lucky. I found that the nerve was not exposed. I performed treatment #1. At the end of treatment, the symptoms were relieved and the tooth was back to normal function.

La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry has offered alternative root canal treatmentformore than five years. We repeatedly remove the infection from the tooth and boost the immune system. Therefore, the tooth heals

by itself. Our success rate of alternative root canal treatment is close to 95 percent if infection is caught at early stage using Dr. Chen’s, a San Diego holistic dentist, ozone therapy protocol.

Alternative Root Canal Treatment and Ozone Therapy, Case #2


Jennifer, an early 50-year-old female executive visited La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry in Oct. 2011 from Santa Barbara.

She complained of sensitivity to hot and cold on her upper right molar area and was unable to chew on her lower left molar area. The problem had been on and off for a couple months, but was getting worse within the past two weeks. She also mentioned that all four molars had crowns. She had felt weary since the crowns on lower left molars were placed. She said that her dentist at the time suggested Root Canal Treatment and referred her to an endodontist for a second opinion. The endodontist also agreed to do root canal treatment. She learned Dr. Chen, a holistic dentist in San Diego, offered alternative root canal treatment.

Dr. Chen is highly experienced in alternative root canal treatment, using a combination of ozone therapy, prolotherapy and complex homeopathy remedies. Dr. Chen injected an immune support cocktail around the root tip area followed by ozone gas injection. This procedure was repeated a few times, each visit about four to seven days apart. Elizabeth also took complex homeopathy remedies to enhance immunity and help her body fight the infection in her mouth.

After the second session, the symptoms of her upper molars improved 75 percent, and lower molars were getting better, as well. At the end of treatment, her upper molar was completely free from sensitivities. The lower molar area was about 70 percent improved, which was expected, as it was more complicated. She continued taking homeopathic remedies for about three months. She called a few days ago and reported that the lower molar area was improving day by day. La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry offers alternative root canal treatment-– a San Diego holistic dentist’s ozone therapy protocol.

Alternative Root Canal Treatment and Ozone Therapy, Case #1


Joni, a 53-year-old female, schoolteacher experienced toothache and sensitivity on her upper right 2nd premolar during the Christmas holidays in 2007. She was prescribed antibiotics for two weeks by her dentist. X-rays showed an infection at the bottom of the root. Her dentist referred her to see an endodontist, a root canal specialist. The endodontist wanted to do root canal treatment. Her ex-husband had received ozone autochemotherapy for lung cancer, so Joni was familiar with this procedure. She knew that ozone therapy could kill infections, relieve trauma and boost the immune system. She began looking for a San Diego Holistic Dentist who is experienced in ozone therapy. Her friend referred her to see me in January of 2008 for ozone therapy for that tooth.

I did four weekly sessions of ozone treatment. She felt better after the first treatment and sent me an email one month later “tooth not hurting, feels good.” Five months after treatment she came in for a follow-up and her X-rays showed bone regeneration at the bottom of the root.
The alternative root canal treatment procedures were:

1. Ozone gas insufflating through the nose and the ear, clean up the head area first.
2. Injecting sterile ozone gas into the jawbone close to the root tip area.
3. Injecting sterile ozone gas and immune support cocktail to the nerve, blood vessels, and lymphatic drainage bundle areas on both side.
4. Guna homeopathy remedies for about 3 months.

La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry has offered alternative root canal treatment for more than five years. We repeatedly remove the infection from the tooth and boost immune system, so the tooth heals by itself. Our success rate with alternative root canal treatment is close to 95 percent if the infection is caught at early stage using Dr. Chen’s, a San Diego holistic dentist, ozone therapy protocol.

Holistic Dentist in San Diego Specializes in Mercury Free Dentistry
La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry Discusses the Dangers of Heavy Metal Use in Dental Care


LA JOLLA, CA – December 15, 2011 La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry, premier holistic dentist in San Diego, talks about the potential health hazards associated with traditional dental practices and materials. Holistic dentistry focuses on the overall wellbeing of their patients, and understands the integral role that safe dentistry plays in the health of the entire body as a whole. La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry, trusted holistic dentist in San Diego, highly recommends all patients undergo a heavy metal toxicity measurement to determine the levels of highly toxic metals, including mercury, in the body.

Amalgam fillings, also commonly known as “silver” fillings, are actually made up of around 50 percent metallic mercury. According to the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT), mercury is the second most toxic substance in the world, and mercury fillings are constantly leaking vapor, which is then absorbed into the bloodstream. High mercury levels are associated with numerous serious health issues and diseases including fatigue, depression, hormonal problems, and kidney failure.

La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry utilizes Quicksilver Scientifics’ Tri Test for mercury analysis, which includes comprehensive hair, blood, and urine testing. This method allows dental practitioners to assess patients’ levels of both methyl mercury and inorganic mercury separately, and then plan a detoxification strategy accordingly. A high level of inorganic mercury in the blood is generally a result of dental amalgam exposure and is excreted through the urine. Levels of methyl mercury in the blood are typically a byproduct of seafood consumption or swallowing dental amalgam based mercury – and are excreted through the hair follicles. La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry implements the Quicksilver Scientific methods of mercury analysis in order to obtain the most detailed analysis of heavy metals in their patients.

“As an IAOMT dentist office, we believe that healthy teeth and gums are the first step to achieving optimal health,” said Dr. Fen-Hui Chen, founder of La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry. “The mouth is the portal to the rest of the body and we need to be more cautious of the materials we put in it.”
