In a new video, Dr. Vane’ shows off a new alkaline/hydrogen water system and the dental uses for alkaline/hydrogenated/ozonated water.
Come in and enjoy some fresh air.
I’ve added extra air purification to our rooms in order to make sure you breathe only the finest.
My new obsession is Pressed Juicery, because it is so affordable. 8 drinks for $38 or a cleanse for $39.50.
As someone who regularly spends $12 per juice, this is a steal! You can order them online, or pick them up at the UTC mall.
Most people don’t realize that they have a metal allergy. They also don’t realize that standard braces contain nickel and the wires contain nickel titanium.
This patient had a severe inflammatory reaction to the braces from another dentist. She was probably told by the dentist that she wasn’t brushing enough around her brackets – when in fact it was due to an allergy.
Gum disease, aka Periodontal disease, is the inflammation of gum tissue caused by tartar (essentially a calcified mat of bacteria).
Here’s how to prevent and treat gum disease.
One of the reasons I find myself so passionate about holistic dentistry is that I personally suffer from mercury toxicity and thyroid disease.
As a part of our wellness program for both patients and staff, we installed an air-filtration system to help reduce the number of harmful aerosols that are created during dental appointments.
Last week I mentioned that we had two big announcements to make. The first of those was the Moonlight Beach Dental Savings Plan, our in-house solution for those that don’t have (or want) dental insurance to receive regular, quality dental care at the most reasonable pricing possible. The second is that we have purchased a…
The future of dentistry is here! PRF (platelet rich fibrin) is created from your own cells, and in dentistry, it can be used to heal and repair infected areas in your mouth.
Here’s a rundown.
If you are extremely anxious or fearful about dentistry, we can talk about options to put you comfortably asleep while we work on your teeth. Another possible option is conscious sedation – which, for most people, makes it so you don’t remember much of your visit.
While removing mercury fillings can possibly help reduce mercury levels in your body, it’s important to actually test the levels of mercury present in your body.
This video covers more information about this test, and some of the detoxification supplements available.
For years I’ve wanted to work on my father’s teeth, but I was unable to do so. The reason was that his gag reflex is so severe that he could never handle having impression trays in his mouth.
Our office has done away with the old, goopy style of impressions, and now we can take digital impressions in just a few minutes. This was perfect for dad, who had no problem with the small digital impression “wand”.
I’m really excited to talk to you more about some technology in our office, the iTero.
We use this awesome technology to educate our patients, and digitally scan them. We are now an impression-less office – meaning we no longer use those slimy, gooey impression trays.
Spring has sprung at Moonlight Beach Dental!
This gorgeous weather has Dr. Vane inspired. Isn’t it nice to be greeted by this in a dental office, rather than the typical “dental office smell”?
We’ve made an investment in a really cool new scanning technology tool that not only allows you to see a full digital model of your current smile – it gives you a simulation of what your smile would look like after different treatments. It also allows you to see changes in your smile over time.
Recently a heart surgeon reached out to us with a patient experiencing jaw pain. It turned out the pain was related to her TMJ, and we took care of the problem.
I’ve been reading an exceptional book by Maya Shetreat-Klein, a pediatric neurologist (not just a holistic practitioner).
She provides a natural approach that sheds light on a possible link between ADHD, eczema, asthma, learning delays etc and the diet we provide our children.
I very rarely get sick. So I was surprised when I got a horrible stomach flu last weekend, and I was down for 24 hrs.
Here’s my secret to jumping right back.
We now offer a 5-year warranty on our crowns! We know of no other dentist that does this. New cars don’t even come with a 5-year warranty.
If you have ever gotten a crown at another dentist, only to have that crown break in the next year or two, you know it can be an expensive, and frustrating situation.
We are very proud of the quality of care we provide. That’s why we stand behind it, with a 5-year warranty on all major work.
Had a nice lunch meeting with Dr. Randy Garland to talk about pulpal regeneration. We were discussing the latest techniques in avoiding root canals!
This is an exciting new cutting-edge technique that is extremely conservative, and can help a tooth that is dying to begin healing itself.
Some people fear the dentist as a cold, dark & awful place. Moonlight Beach Dental is focused on breaking those negative expectations in every way.
Here’s how we help people overcome their fears of the dentist:
Sometimes bad bacteria overwhelms the system and antibiotics are prescribed by a doctor out of necessity. When a doctor prescribes antibiotics, listen to your doctor and take them as prescribed. During and after the antibiotics, there are things you can do to start rebuilding the good, helpful bacteria that is found in healthy intestines.
People are highly chemically-sensitive in subtle ways to many things in their environment.
A biologic, holistic, and integrative dentistry attempts to reduce as many of the causes of these sensitivities in their office.
Hopefully you never need to have a tooth removed. But if you do, you might be curious about the way to go about a surgical extraction, or how it can effect your body.
With regard to extractions, I want to explain some differences between the “holistic” methods as opposed to more traditional methods.
One of the common concerns that we hear about from the people coming into our office has to do with the metals used in titanium implants. Some people are concerned about the metals that are essentially being incorporated into a part of their body, and want to know about non-metal alternatives.
Since we live so close to the Mexico border, every once in a while you hear a story about someone that goes to Tijuana in order to “save money” on “cheap” dental work.
If this is something you’ve considered, I implore you to read this post. If you don’t want to read, please understand this:
If you go to a “cheap” dentist, anywhere, you will always get “cheap” dental work that will end up costing you more money in the long run.
Research shows that fluoride helps prevent tooth decay. So why would I choose not to use fluoride? In short, too much of some things can be bad.
Springing into spring and summer with new flavor!
Lip balm seems to be everybody’s favorite Moonlight Beach Dental swag.
Stop in for your chai tea, watermelon mint and coconut pineapple starfruit lip fusion all-natural balms!
I’d estimate that around 9 out of 10 orthodontists would recommend that teenagers (who are done growing) extract 4 teeth to “make space” for the crowded front teeth.
This may be necessary in some cases, but in some situations, I don’t feel it’s always a necessity.
Take a look at this case from we performed in conjunction with one of our orthodontic referral partners.
