Fluoride products are used in the dental industry to strengthen teeth and prevent decay, however, it has negative effects on the body.
Sunnyvale Dental Group, a holistic dentistry, believes that the dangers of fluoride are way too risky and outweigh the benefits. Our practice does not promote or advocate the use of fluoride and we invite you to experience our holistic approach to dentistry.
Why No Fluoride?
High concentrations of fluoride are used to treat dental cavities, which is 9 to 20 times more than the level the FDA classifies as poisonous. Fluoride can be linked with:
- Dental fluorosis
- Skin rashes
- Blurred vision
- Canker sores
- Tumors and cancer
- Neurological impairment
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Thyroid diseases
Old notions regarding the benefits of fluoride are being dismissed as studies have proved that fluoride does little or nothing to fight against caries.
Avoid Fluoride Toothpaste:
Fluoride is a toxic element and should be avoided at all cost. The membranes of the mouth are more sensitive than the stomach and can absorb substances easily. When you use fluoride toothpaste, a little quantity is absorbed every time you brush your teeth. This leads to spotted discoloration on the teeth.
Holistic dentistry has replaced the fluoride treatments by Ozone Therapy and other clean and non-toxic procedures. Holistic dentists also recommend vitamin D supplements instead of fluoridated water.
