Integrative Medicine

What is integrative medicine?  I am a firm believer in getting to the root cause of disease versus treating symptoms.  I also believe it is important to have an open mind and draw on the knowledge and experience of all modalities of medicine including western and eastern medicine.  I have studied holistic nutrition, ayurveda and chinese medicine.  I also use energy medicine, stones and crystals to create positive energy and allay anxiety.  It is possible to uncover the root cause of anxiety by altering diet and creating a spiritual practice.  By using these modalities I can look at your tongue and see how your digestive tract is doing.  I can assess the hydration status of your body and pinpoint certain areas of the body that need attention.  It is my intention to eliminate the need for excessive chemicals and medications that  treat symptoms, but do not address the root cause of the underlying issue.  I do not believe that flouride is the cure or proper prevention for all cavities.  It is apparent from the extensive literature that when our bodies are lacking the appropriate minerals, they will be pulled from our teeth and bones, therefore making us more susceptible to infections, including cavities.  The key to health and wellness is a robust digestion and the appropriate amount of vitamins minerals and oxygen.  At Carver Family Dentistry we treat the whole body in order to create truly healthy bodies!


(Platelet-Rich Fibrin)

 PRF is an autologous blood concentrate prepared from a patient's own blood just before or during a dental procedure. Blood is drawn from the patient and immediately spun in a centrifuge machine to separate the different blood components into individual, concentrated layers that the clinician can use in many applications.  The PRF layer is a yellow and thick jello-like biologic material rich in fibrin and growth factors. In the absence of PRF, dental extraction sites are commonly left to heal open to the oral cavity where saliva, bacteria, and other contaminants are free to enter the socket. When PRF is placed into an extraction site, the PRF protects the site from infection and enriches the area with proteins that accelerate healing.

Perio Protect

Localized delivery of specialized Hydrogen Peroxide into periodontal (gum) pockets. Instead of harsh antibiotics which can cause antibiotic resistance, kill the "good" bacteria and cause digestive problems, this gel used for 15 minutes once or twice per day depending on the individual, uses the power of oxygen to kill disease causing bugs deep in the gum tissue where neither a toothbrush nor floss can reach. A custom bite guard is fabricated which seals around the gum tissue to target the delivery of the oxygen. Ask your hygienist about perio protect! This is the best way to maintain excellent oral health without harsh chemicals and or medications.

Tongue Diagnosis

Chinese and Ayurvedic practitioners often first look at an individual's tongue to determine overall health.  Different areas of the tongue correspond to different areas of the body like in reflexology and feet.  As a dentist, I am looking at tongues all day and the texture and color can give me clues about digestive issues, hydration status and inflammation.  Often signs of disease present before symptoms, so if we can identify a weak area in the body, we can work together with a physician to restore the body to good health.

Muscle Testing

Muscle testing is an in-office method of testing the body’s strength reactions in order to determine if a substance is supportive or detrimental to your health. 

Ozone Therapy

Ozone has been used for decades in medical facilities around the world to reoxygenate the body and reeducate the immune system. It is an effective medium to kill indiscriminately viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites without harsh chemicals. Ozone works by targeting positively charged toxic materials in our bodies and renders them harmless. It works to quell inflammation and infection and allows the body to heal itself. By removing barriers to ultimate health, the body will regain its full functionality. We administer ozone via irrigation into infected gum tissues and float gas over teeth to eradicate bacteria within the teeth themselves. We can inject ozone in the area of ulcers and cold sores as well as in tight and sore muscles and joints. Ozone can help with recurrent ear infections, sinus problems and seasonal allergies.
