Holistic Dental Hygiene / Myofunctional Therapy
A deep cleaning at Systemic Dentist is a jump-start to a healthier lifestyle. Our own Barbara Tritz, RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist), is one of the only biological, integrative, holistic dental hygienists in Seattle, Bellevue and Washington. She is the only holistic dental hygienist in Washington who uses a phase contrast microscope for precision in the detection of the dental bacteria associated with both gum and heart disease. Both traditional and ultrasonic imaging are incorporated, as well as 3D digital imaging (when necessary), as well as microscope imaging for instant detection. In addition to being an RDH, Barbara is a certified Periodontal Therapist, as well as an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy Specialist. She also provides services as a Fresh Breath Specialist and an oral health coach.

As one of the world's first holistic dentists, Dr. Panahpour has an extensive history of success in the safe removal of mercury fillings. Using cutting-edge technology, prevention of re-exposure is achieved via a reliable detoxification protocol. Fillings are replaced with a safe biocompatible alternative.
Dental amalgam is a liquid mercury and metal alloy mixture, with up to 50% mercury. Mercury can weaken stomach acid. Mercury + HCL (stomach acid) = mercuric chloride. This damages the lining of the stomach and its ability to make hydrochloric acid, allowing pathogenic bacteria, parasites and amoebas to enter the body and challenge your immunity.
After the safe removal of "silver fillings," many patients report relief of certain symptoms.
Root Canal Alternatives
Save your teeth with root canal alternatives. Prevent and eliminate chronic infections with safe root canal removal. This can be the difference between a long and healthy life, and a silent infection that burdens your body's immune system.

A Different Approach to Pain Caused by TMJ / Bite Alignment
Chronic dental airway space issues and bite malalignment can create long term stress to the cervical spine, which can cause or exacerbate pain or discomfort to many different parts of the body.
Research has demonstrated the relationship between posture and dental occlusion, TM condyle position, and airway space.
You have options for diagnosis and treatment of TMJ. Dr. Panahpour specializes in less invasive treatment that may not (necessarily) involve any of the same appliances or machines that are typically used for TMJ treatment. Dr. Panahpour uses a multidisciplinary approach to oral health and its relationship to whole-body health.
With certifications in A.R.T., Chiro-Dontics, and accreditation in cranial facial epigenetics, Dr. Panahour does a thorough check and a short series of tests for oral and whole-body health, and loss of alignment and strength caused by TMJ utilizing chiropractic, dental orthopedics, cosmetic dentistry, nutrition and cranial orthopedic manipulation techniques as part of every new patient exam.
A dental cavitation is located in the jaw bone at the site of improper/faulty tooth extractions where remnants, fibers, and sometimes pieces of tooth are left behind. When these sites are not properly cleaned out after the extraction, they become the perfect home for biofilm and infection.
Unfortunately, when a cavitation becomes a site of infection, a patient will never see or feel it. A cavitation will never "hurt," because they're deep in the jaw at the site of an old tooth extraction or root canal, where the nerve of the tooth is either dead or has been removed.
Surprisingly, a general dentist with a regular 2D ex-ray instead of a 3-D bone scan like we have at Systemic Dentist is unlikely to detect infection at the site of a wisdom tooth extraction or beneath an old root canal, but your body's immune system does. The hidden, chronic infection found at sites of cavitation in your body are a battleground where your body's immune system is fighting every day.
More and more research is showing us how these jaw infections impact the whole body. For instance, the same bacteria found in gum disease has also been proven to be found in heart disease, diabetes and several types of cancer. Although the relationship is not fully understood, scientists agree that this relationship is present.
There are only a handful of dentists worldwide who have dedicated their life to researching and treating patients from these chronic infections found at the sites of cavitations. Dr. Panahpour is one of these elite doctors with the specialized training, experience and technology for cavitation imaging, detection and diagnosis as well as expert-level knowledge, skill and experience in oral surgery and care for cavitation that may be burdening the body’s immune system. We integrate with medical teams all over the world, and we welcome your ND or MD to request 3D bone scan direct resonance digital imaging for their diagnosis as well.
