Whole Body Dentistry at Natural Smiles Dental CareJan 01, 2024 12:00AM ● By Sheila Julson
Since 2015, Dr. Madelyn Pearson has been creating an integrative dental and wellness clinic. Inspired by a two-year sabbatical on the East Coast, Natural Smiles Dental Care has been continually improving their service offerings and adding new practitioners to better help patients achieve improved oral and overall health.
As an integrative dentist, Pearson recognizes that oral and dental health can impact other disease processes in the body. At her practice, Pearson and her associates offer cutting-edge integrative dental services such as safe amalgam/mercury filling removal, metal-free implants and crowns, ozone/oxygen therapy, platelet-rich fibrin healing enhancements, 3D cone-beam x-rays, 3D intraoral imaging, advanced techniques in lip-tie/tongue-tie frenectomy laser revisions, interceptive orthopedic orthodontics and Invisalign clear tooth-aligning orthodontic appliances.
Pearson explains that integrative dental approaches are used to determine whether dental materials are toxic to the body. The dentists at Natural Smiles Dental Care are all certified in the
Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) protocol. Amalgams are replaced with mercury-free composite (white) filling material. The team also utilizes biocompatible zirconia implants for tooth-replacement.
“We offer many holistic services that go beyond just oral health and promote whole-body wellness,” Pearson says.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) helps reduce stresses throughout the body. This can assist the body to accept orthopedic orthodontic therapy, as well as help reduce dental anxiety and chronic pain.
Bio-energetic scanning can identify dental materials that are not compatible with the patient.
This promotes the use of compatible materials which reduces inflammatory processes.
Myofunctional therapy (MFT) is very beneficial for improving oral habits. This can improve airway health and reduce mouth-breathing and snoring.
Acupuncture is used at Natural Smiles to accelerate healing following dental services, as well as to assist with stress, dental anxiety, chronic pain and inflammation.
Dynamical neurofeedback is a passive brain fitness program that trains the brain away from discomfort and towards optimal function. It can assist with stress management, sleep issues, anxiety, trauma, hormonal imbalances, and much more.
“The idea behind a dental wellness clinic is that all the services form a circular flow. One therapy assists the body to higher health, which then allows the next step to be taken, continuing the journey towards wellbeing. In this day and age, optimal health is critical because disease and ill health costs us so much, both financially and in time away from fulfilling our goals and being with our families,” says Pearson.
Natural Smiles Dental Care is currently accepting new patients. “We strive to provide the safest, and the most calming and relaxing environment, and we have worked to energetically enhance these elements,” reports Pearson.
Natural Smiles Dental Care is located at 3434 Lexington Ave. N, Ste. 700, Shoreview. For more information, call 651-483-9800 or visit NaturalSmilesDental.com.
