Did you know there are over 6 billion bacteria, including 700 different species that reside inside our mouth or what scientists term the Human Oral Microbiome? While some bacteria are helpful, others are harmful and can lead to all types of oral health issues such as cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Our special guest today is a holistic dentist. Holistic dentistry doesn’t treat your dental health as separate from your physical health. Instead, it focuses on the impacts your whole health might have on your oral health. Unlike traditional dentists, holistic dentists don’t favor the use of fluoride treatments and are also opposed to using amalgam materials for dental implants which contain mercury. Instead, they use Composite fillings which are tooth-colored and don’t discolor the tooth, contain mercury, and are made from non-toxic material.
Dr. Karaneh Jahan attended Oregon Health and Science University where she obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. She is a certified Holistic Health and Lifestyle coach. She runs Brio Dental, in Portland which provides holistic general and cosmetic dentistry serving the whole person—from self-care to oral care and beyond.
