KTH Flashback: 5 Sleep Remedies You May Not Have Heard Of

Posted on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Originally posted November 1, 2017 So we’ve looked at why sleep is so important, which naturally raises the question: How can we get more of it – or get better sleep than we’re getting now? For the sad fact is that most of us are constantly, chronically sleep-deprived – and we’ve all heard the reasons […]


You’ve Seen Root Cause. Now What?

Posted on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Root Cause is a powerful film that’s raising awareness about the problems root canal-treated teeth can be. But we’re also seeing a lot of viewers jumping to the conclusion that they must have their root canal teeth removed immediately, either to regain their health or prevent chronic health problems down the line. Will dentists jump […]


Flaxseed for Radiation Exposure?

Posted on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Dental x-rays aren’t exactly fun, but sometimes, they’re necessary. They remain the best tool we have for seeing conditions within the tooth, not to mention the supporting bone. More advanced dental imaging – such as CBCT/3D cone beam scanning – is also becoming much more common for diagnosing certain dental conditions (though, contrary to what […]


What a Visit with a Biological Dentist Is Like

Posted on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

It’s one thing to tell you, as we do on our home page, what we believe makes our practice special – or even just what our patients say they value about the holistic, biological dental care we provide. It’s quite another when a patient tells you – which is why we were delighted to see […]


What’s in – or, Rather, on – Your Dental Floss?

Posted on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Once upon a time, we recommended Glide dental tape. Now? Not so much. New research has confirmed that this product – along with other mainstream, big brand flosses – may be a source of exposure to PFASs. These synthetic chemicals are both water- and grease-resistant, so they’re used in a wide array of consumer products, […]


Biological Dental Health in 2018 – A Last Look Back

Posted on Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been blogging for over 10 years now! Yes, our first post went online all the way back in May of 2008 – a simple quote from James H. West to set the tone: Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit […]


When Root Canal “Myths” Aren’t Myths at All

Posted on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

It’s kind of annoying when you run across an article that promises to debunk certain myths and find that it just perpetuates others. Case in point? A post on root canals that recently cropped up on Facebook, linking to the site of a company selling a new spin on an old procedure. So naturally, the […]


No, Glycerin Isn’t a Problem for Tooth Remineralization

Posted on Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Recently on a holistic health page, we noticed someone asking about whether she should avoid glycerin in toothpaste. That this was even an issue was news to us – but apparently not to some corners of the internet, where you’ll find more than a few bloggers, not to mention sites about “curing” tooth decay and […]
