How Dental Health Affects Your Wellbeing

 

Emmy Grimes 

Hello, hello welcome everyone. I’m Emmy Grimes. I’m an advisor here at Senergy Medical Group. We have the amazing Dr. Marshall Olson DDS joining us today. I’m so excited to have him here. We have a great topic we’re going to be talking about. He has known the Tennant family for over 20 years. I’m so thankful it’s going to be a great topic. We try to bring you the best information. So, let’s just dive in. How did you get connected with Dr. Tennant?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Ah, it’s a great, great question Emmy. I met him a little over 20 years ago when my youngest child was sick. And so he treated her with the BioModulator®, one of the first generations of the BioModulators®, she was under two pounds at birth, struggling to survive, really, and I honestly, I think he saved her life. Really. She’s 20 years old now in college and typical annoying 20 year old kid. But yeah, I met him not long ago. And since then, I’ve always wanted to learn from him and had the pleasure of being close enough to hear a lot of his teaching and learn how to use this and incorporate it into my own my own practice. So that is a huge blessing.

 

Emmy Grimes 

I was just going to say what a blessing. How cool is that? And to be able to save your own child. That’s amazing. Oh, we’re so glad you’re here. I think the first question I want to ask you is, how does dental health affect our overall health?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Okay, yeah. So dental. Your mouth is basically it’s a gateway to your body, right. That’s how we get food in there. We breathe through our mouth. And so everything in there is, is connected. So you’re going to whatever’s going on in the mouth is going on elsewhere. And studies are now showing that we’re seeing things where oral health problems are related to everything from Alzheimers, dementia, arthritis, diabetes, it’s all in there. Even emotions get stored in the teeth, especially negative emotions, they get trapped in there. And so your mouth can tell a lot about your overall health. If we can keep that area healthy, it’s a good place to start.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Right? I know, it’s like a report card. Basically. What is the difference between a biological dentist and a regular dentist? We get this question often.

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, I get that question too. People come in like, “Hey, what are you? What are you saying when you’re a biologic dentist?” So the biggest thing is that we’re trying to figure out and really pay attention to how your oral health relates to the rest of your body. We want to look at things like inflammation, toxicity, what materials are being used in your teeth, and in your mouth, so that we can keep that overall health and the whole body. So that’s the biggest difference is we’re trying to see, stay conservative, figure out how can we help the oral cavity to better relate to overall health? So really focusing on that relationship.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Good. How do you evaluate what needs to be done? What special steps are done to assess the situation?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, so we spend a lot of time (probably more than your typical appointment) where you’re coming in and getting checked quickly and teeth poked, and then seen again in six months, we want to spend a lot of time talking over your health history, dental history, and where have you noticed changes. How does it relate to the chronology of that like, well, I got sick. Okay, well, what happened before that? Oh, I happen to have had a lot of dental work done right before I got this treatment done. So we want to review that health history quite a bit. We want to we use technologies like Cone Beam scans, muscle testing, blood work, compatibility testing, a lot of things to try to figure out what, if anything, is going on in the mouth that could be related to the rest of the body or interfering with enjoying an overall healthy lifestyle.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Yes, living our best life. Well, that brings me to my next question, since you brought up cone beam, what is a cone beam scan or CB CT scan and how does it compare to like an X ray?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, great question. The cone beam scan is a three dimensional image or scan that we can take of all the teeth, so it allows us to look for things that in a regular X ray (which is two dimensional and gives us a lot of information too) but the 3D Cone Beam lets us rotate the tooth, we can take cross sectional views, we can really hone in and see where there might be a hidden infection somewhere that’s been missed with two dimensional imaging. We can see and clearly define and treat to solve a lot of problems. So that Cone Beam scan, while it’s a big scan, it also gives us a ton of information.

 

Emmy Grimes 

It’s like it is giving you that roadmap to determine where you are, where you stand and where you need to go. My next question is, how is an extraction different in a biological sense? What does this do for the body?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, the extraction process, which everybody is really excited about, right? If the dentist says, hey, you need an extraction, what we want to do is make sure that that traumatic event of removing the teeth, especially if it’s an infected tooth, how do we get the body and give the body what it needs to recover quickly, less pain, and keep you healthy? The biggest differences is we’re going to use things like ozone therapy during the procedure. We’re going to use Platelet Rich fibrin, which we’re collecting from stem cells, healing factors from your own blood collecting and using that to place back into the extraction site to help generate circulation and proper healing. And then it does really well, when we pair it up with the BioModulator® to get that healing and get that voltage back up into that area, if we want to talk voltage.

 

Emmy Grimes 

I did want to ask, because this was brought to our attention, can amalgam fillings be removed safely?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, the answer in short is yes, to a certain extent. We do put a lot of safety protocols in removing the amalgam fillings, and the reason we want to remove them is that up to 50% of them, have that filling material Mercury, which is extremely toxic material. And mercury vapor is released when you’re removing those. So there’s two different main protocols we use, one is called Smart and the other one is just called protect. But essentially, we want to isolate the tooth, remove it safely, and use extra suction filtration to try to capture as much of that mercury vapor as we can while we remove that toxic substance from the teeth.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Good to hear. Now, we get this often too, if someone has a root canal, should they leave it alone? Or do they need to remove it?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

I think that question ideally, in an ideal scenario you wouldn’t have the root canal. As to when is the right time to remove it depends a lot on the health condition and age of the patient. We know that once the tooth has been a root canal that it no longer has circulation or nerve innervation. So we know it’s going to have a higher bacterial load, that it is going to stress the immune system & stress the body. So when reviewing everything & looking at radiographic imaging, looking at the health condition, what meridian that tooth is tied to that would really determine on when and how soon we’d want to remove the tooth. But my personal preference, is just not to see those teeth in the mouth.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Can I treat the dental infection with the BioModulator® and see results?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

You can to a certain extent, and I think it goes back to what we were talking about with circulation just a minute ago with like a root canal — the BioModulator® is going to increase voltage to the area, it’s going to give the cells the energy it needs. But to get rid of a dental infection, a lot of times it’s going to require an in depth and sometimes surgical intervention to really remove the cause. The root cause of the problem. So yes, the BioModulator® can be used as a treatment. But as far as full treatment, I think it also requires some hands.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Well, that’s good. And we’ve got some resources. That’s the good news. I know people are often scared of the dentist or what can they do if they can’t afford the dental work?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, good. Good question. And that comes up a lot. And obviously, it is important to look at it from a preventative standpoint. If you can do little things, which tend to be less expensive upfront, like getting checked regularly, making sure your diets good, making sure you’re giving your body what it needs, then dental appointments don’t necessarily need to be super expensive in that regard. But there are ways if you’re at that point where we need to intervene. There are services out there that will finance dental care, you can also break it up into smaller sections, focus on things that are more urgent first, and try to work around it. We’re not all bad people, and we want to help you out. And so there are workarounds and financing options that can help people get it done, and where it’s not such a burden for them.

 

Emmy Grimes 

That’s good to hear. Thank you for letting us know that. And how do I find the right dentist in my area? Because we help people all over the world. So I would love to hear from your thoughts on that.

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, finding the right dentist, I think it does take a little bit of work, you’re going to need to research things a little bit and ask them good questions. What’s great is there are organizations out there that helped train dentists in these types of treatments in biologic dentistry, there’s some really good organizations out there. I think with people who are following Senergy, it’s really easy to just contact you guys. And you guys have done a lot of that research and legwork for them. And you can give them some ideas on how to find someone close to them. And then help them find the right kind of treatment, the right kind of crowd of dentists for them.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Fantastic. Yes. And lastly, I understand, for those local people out there or even coming to visit the Tennant Institute here in Dallas, your practice is just down the street from us. Tell us what you can offer the Tennant Institute friends out there.

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Yeah, so we sit really close to the to the Institute. And we’ve got it set up. Because we do know a lot of people come from far away, they’re on a time schedule. And we don’t want them to miss out on all the amazing things happening at the Tennant Institute. So we do have things set up at our practice, where if you call in, let us know or contact us, let us know your when you’re coming with the Tennant Institute. And we have special appointment slots set apart, we can work around things we can do part of the exam and then follow up with zoom or a phone call to go over things like the cone beam scan, because those can be long appointments. But we can break them up. And we’re always willing to work around people’s schedule, especially when they’re coming in and working with such an important part of the group with the Tennant Institute.

 

Emmy Grimes 

That’s fantastic. They’re like a VIP customer basically.

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Well, the reason they are is we know they’re really focused on getting well. And so we make sure that the teeth are not burdening that journey of getting well.

 

Emmy Grimes 

That is fantastic. Well everyone out there, please contact us. You know, I know that Dr. Marshall is an amazing guy and he’ll shoot straight with you and give you great information. So thank you again, for being here today. And explaining all of that is there any last words you want to mention to the to our viewers out there when it comes to dental health?

 

Marshall Olson, DDS 

Just make sure you brush your teeth, brush twice, floss once and eat right. And make sure you give your body what it needs to take care of itself. That’s one thing I’ve learned from the Tennant folks in Senergy is that your body has what it needs to take care of itself and get well. You’ve just got to make sure you give it the building blocks and things that it needs. I so appreciate being with you guys.

 

Emmy Grimes 

Oh, thanks so much, Dr. Marshall.
