Episode Highlights with Dr. Linda Golden

  • One of the most important qualities to look for in a healthcare practitioner is open-mindedness and patient-driven.  

  • Regarding implants: Ceramic implants can differ widely from one another, and not all are created equal.  The production and shipping of these products is important, considering they will be going into your body (your mouth.)

  • Before getting implants, it is important to make sure you are hydrated, check the immune system, and make sure the body is prepared to receive the product, and the procedure.  Getting blood work done before the procedure is best practice.

  • Titanium creates an electrical imbalance within the body.  Bacteria also tends to be drawn to titanium.

  • Some people are allergic to titanium, just like any metal allergy.

  • When getting mercury is getting removed, make sure the dentist is SMART-Certified.  Otherwise, complications could occur!  

  • Oral ozone can be a beneficial alternative treatment for periodontal infection, or an old root canal which the patient doesn’t want taken out.  It can also be used in cavitation sites.

  • There are three main choices when it comes to needing root canals:  1) Do nothing; 2) Get a root canal; 3) Pull the tooth and clean the area

  • The 3-D scan is much more effective than the panoramic x-ray.

  • Because the 3-D scan is more expensive, many dentists still do not have them.  However, a mobile unit can come to the dentist office.  Google “3-D Mobile Unit Dentistry” to find options near you.

  • Consider going to a dentist that doesn’t have an overwhelming number of patients, so they can have the freedom to give your case the attention it deserves.

  • Water pick can be a powerful tool for dental hygiene

  • Regarding tooth brushes - use a soft bristle, and notice if the bristles are splaying out, this is an indication that you are not brushing correctly, and your dentist can advise you.
