Alternative / Holistic

I focus on combining the best of all treatments, based on your individual needs. I specialize in modalities ozone and laser therapies.  I am SMART certified in safe amalgam removal protocols. SMART certification is the gold standard in safe removal of these older amalgam fillings.  I am also well educated on natural healing compounds such as CBD products.

I offer resources such as biocompatibility testing, I work with functional medicine teams, health coaches, and other supporting healthcare providers. I have many patients with unique health needs and I offer both traditional and alternative oral therapy modalities. I can work with your healthcare team or I can introduce you to my network of trusted providers.

Safe Amalgam Removal

According to the National Institute of Health, heavy metals are a growing concern in medicine. It is often necessary or desired to remove amalgam (Silver Mercury) restorations (fillings). It is important that this procedure is done safely.

Safety protocols during removal of Silver Mercury fillings ensure that there is minimal (if any) absorption of metallic material. In other words, we don’t want any mercury entering your bloodstream when the fillings are removed.

Dr. Carson is SMART certified by the IAOMT.
SMART stands for safe mercury amalgam removal technique.
The IAOMT created the SMART standards with your health in mind and Dr. Carson adheres strictly to their guidelines.

Laser Dentistry​

Dr. Carson actively searches out new technologies that give her patients more ease and comfort while they are having procedures.
The Nightlase by Fotona is a precision tool that creates impressive results in minimal time with little or no discomfort for you.
To make you more comfortable we use laser dentistry for a wide range of problems including:
  • Snoring Treatments
  • Periodontics (gum) treatment
  • Frenectomies
  • Preparing cavities for filling
  • Desensitizing teeth

Ozone Therapy

The ozone molecule is the most powerful agent that we can use on microorganisms. It is deadly to bacteria, viruses and fungi, yet it does no damage to the more highly evolved human cells, in low concentrations. It is also naturally occurring, which makes it safe and effective to use.

Ozone can be used to treat

  • Minor to moderate cavities
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum disease
  • Sterilization for root canal therapy
  • Pain & Inflammation
  • Sinus issues

Tongue Ties can be a problem for infants, children, and adults

When tongue-ties are present, an unusually short, thick or tight band of tissue (lingual frenulum) tethers the bottom of the tongue’s tip to the floor of the mouth. For infants, this may interfere with breast-feeding. Someone who has a tongue-tie might have difficulty sticking out their tongue. Tongue-ties can also affect the way a child eats, speaks and swallows.

Conditions that can develop as a result of a tongue tie include:
  • Breastfeeding problems
  • Speech difficulties
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Challenges with other oral activities
  • Poor facial development
  • Restricted/underdeveloped airway
  • TMJ pain & dysfunction

Frenectomy

A tongue tie release or frenectomy can resolve symptoms very quickly
Tie removals (called frenectomies) remove the tissue or tight frenulum under the tongue or upper lip.
Dr. Carson prefers a state-of-the-art laser for frenectomies. It’s a safe and quick procedure that allows for greater tongue and lip mobility.
There are many advantages to removing
ties with a laser. Some of them include:
  • Shorter procedure time
  • Less post-op discomfort
  • Minimal bleeding during and after the procedure – the laser aids in hemostasis
  • Faster healing
  • Increased precision and complete removal of a tie
  • Minor to moderate cavities

Why Materials Testing?

From dental restoratives to surgical implants and prosthetics, “biomaterials” are used to restore, repair or maintain structure/function in the body.
People react to biomaterials in different ways. Reactions to materials in the body can be mild or, in rare cases, severe.

We offer material testing for patients who need or want this level of evaluation.

Material sensitivity testing, salivary testing and spectra cell analysis allow us to make extremely customized decisions about the treatments we suggest for you.
