Integrative Dentistry Health-Focused Dental Treatments

Dr. Chow is a strong advocate for holistic dentistry. This is dentistry that favors minimally invasive procedures, whenever possible, and using materials that are biocompatible with the rest of the body. 

Biological Dentistry – For Your Good Health.

Recent advancements in dental techniques and materials used have opened greater possibilities of patients receiving oral treatments that are not toxic to their bodies and that don't cause undue emotional or mental distress. To obtain the benefits of one of the top Thousand Oaks holistic dentists, ModelSmile Dentistry is your best choice.

Biocompatible dental treatments in Thousand Oaks, CA

As a premier holistic dentist in Thousand Oaks residents can be confident that biocompatibility is of prime concern to Dr. Chow when planning a course of treatment. In this way future health problems can be avoided. Dr. Chow performs every procedure with artistry and meticulous care, and is known for his top tier restorations, cosmetic enhancements, implants, and other oral care. 

The mouth/body connection

Dr. Chow uses his knowledge of how one's oral health affects the body in general to provide treatments that assist in one's overall health. For example, his protocols for safe mercury removal when removing amalgam fillings: it is not enough to only place porcelain or composite fillings instead of amalgam fillings, Dr. Chow employs protocols to protect his patients and staff from exposure to toxic mercury vapor, with a specialized process.

Holistic dentistry: Compatible with traditional treatments

There are several issues that distinguish traditional dentistry from holistic dentistry practices. Issues such as fluoride treatments, use of mercury fillings, routine use of X-rays and whether to perform an extraction are among the most common procedures that are discussed in a consultation with Dr. Chow.

The Benefits of a Holistic Approach

Holistic dentistry seeks to provide dental treatment which supports the entire body, particularly the immune system. Many traditional treatments have the potential of stressing the immune system through the introduction of metals and chemicals such as mercury or fluoride. Dr. Chow is passionate about providing his patients with safe and effective holistic dentistry without compromising the ultimate goal of strong, functioning teeth and healthy gums.

Integrative Dentistry at its Best: ModelSmile Dentistry

While treatment decisions are ultimately your decision, it is of great benefit to have options to traditional dentistry. Dr. Chow offers his patients state-of-the-art, biologically safe dental practices, including zirconia implants, laser dentistry, including lasers, PRF (platelet rich fibrin), bone grafting, stem cells, and other options. We invite you to discover the best holistic dentistry Thousand Oaks residents can find, where you and your health matter.

Specialty integrative dentistry procedures

Another example of a holistic approach is Dr. Chow's treatment of sleep apnea (a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep). For patients with obstructive sleep apnea, he produces custom appliances that are worn during sleep. These devices are much more comfortable than the unwieldy CPAP machine, and they effectively reduce obstructive sleep apnea. Left untreated, sleep apnea can be very detrimental to the body, and even lead to heart attacks.
