The Natural Approach and Biological Dentistry-Auburn CA
Safe Mercury Removal
Mercury fillings were once the standard option for restoring teeth. We now know that mercury is highly toxic and must be removed with care to avoid exposure to harmful vapor.
During mercury removal, our team will follow the IAOMT SMART protocol to ensure your safety from unnecessary exposure to this heavy metal. These precautions include:
- An activated charcoal slurry
- Nasal hood with supplemental air
- Dent Air Vac system
- High speed suction and Clean-Up Device
- A rubber dam or Isolite
BPA and Metal Free Materials
Much uproar has surfaced about BPA, or Bisphenol A, contained in plastics and in dental materials. Dr. Isbell is dedicated to conserving a patient's natural tooth and using only safe, biocompatible and metal free materials to repair broken down tooth structure.
Fluoride Free Dentistry
We do not carry any materials in office that contain fluoride. We offer products that work with the body to keep the teeth and gums healthy.
Dental Material Compatibility Testing
With a simple blood draw, we now have the ability to check your dental material compatibility against thousands of name-brand products. If there is a reactive chemical in the product, it is flagged and labeled not compatible. These labs provide a report of results by product name and by category. Testing kits can be ordered directly from either lab below:

We are constantly fighting a battle within the soft tissue and/or the underlying bone structures. These infections can come from bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The use of ozonated water is the perfect irrigation solution for periodontal infections, tooth extractions, and even for post operative treatments to help reduce pain and inflammation. Ozone can prevent, and in some cases even reverse, tooth decay. It is safe, simple, and effective.
