What's New

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!

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.

MRT Testing

Dr. Carver is now a prescribing provider for this very specific food allergy testing. Previous tests like skin testing and IgE and IgG testing only test for 2 of 4 inflammatory pathways. MRT tests all four pathways of reactions to food and common chemicals to determine if underlying food allergies may be causing health problems.

IonCleanse Foot Bath

This 30 minute foot bath is an excellent way to remove heavy metals and acidic toxic wastes.  By using ions that penetrate the skin, these toxic substances are pulled out of your body as evidenced by the water turning from clear to cloudy and rusty with specs of heavy metals. This rejuvenating cleanse is a great start to detoxifying the entire body.

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.

HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS

Why is it that blood tests show normal results but you may still feel badly? Only you know your body and it is important to listen to its clues.  If you feel badly then something must be wrong.  Do NOT ignore signs and symptoms that your body is not working optimally.  I have searched for years for a way to better assess the nutrient status of the body and finally came across hair mineral analysis.  Since your blood needs to maintain a certain pH balance, it will shuttle chemicals, heavy metals and toxins out of the blood and into the tissues where they can manifest as disease but can not be detected in the blood.  Your small hair sample can assess your stress levels, thyroid and adrenal health, blood sugar metabolism, heavy metal burdens, your mineral levels of calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium and many others that are crucial for good health.  With the knowledge of your imbalances you can reset your system by taking the appropriate supplements for your at this time of your life.  A multivitamin may have the wrong balance of nutrients for you or could be lacking in the actual minerals that you need. This is why many doctors say that multivitamins are not worth it.  They may not understand the complex relationships between vitamins and minerals.  I have had incredible success with nutritional balancing.  We are all individuals going through unique experiences at any given time.  It is important to give our body what it needs at each moment to prevent long lasting and debilitating disease.  Ask Dr. Carver for a kit and learn what nutrient deficiencies may be keeping you from optimal health.  

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.  CLICK HERE to read more about this and see the map of the tongue.
