Mercury Safe Dentistry
We are able to safely remove old mercury amalgam (silver fillings) through a very specific procedure. We never use mercury amalgam to fill cavities.
Here at Pure Holistic Dental, we believe what happens orally affects the rest of the body, and vice versa. Our oral health impacts the rest of our body because the mouth, teeth and gums are integrated with our body systems.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Our goal is to conserve healthy teeth through prevention, remineralization, and minimal dental intervention. We evaluate every patient to see their risk and put together a plan individualized for them.
Pure Holistic Dental is a Biological Dental Office in Houston focused on providing the best possible patient care.
We use a “Team of Doctors” approach where you are cared for by the whole team based on the patients specific needs.
From Airway Expansion to Biomimetic Restoration to Advanced Extraction of Painful Teeth…
…Our Holistic Dentists Have Got You Covered!
Safe – Mercury Removal
Since the 1800’s, silver-colored amalgam fillings have been used for tooth decay. These fillings still contain about 50% mercury. There has been much research proving the negative effects mercury can have on the body, including the nervous, digestive and immune systems, and the lungs, kidneys, skin and eyes.
For a material to be considered “biocompatible” it must be able to exist in the body without causing any harm. We can test the compatibility of dental materials with a simple blood test before selecting the materials to place inside your mouth.
Root Canal Alternatives
A Dentist perform root canals for many different reasons: tooth abscess, infection, traumatic injury, deep decay, multiple procedures on the same tooth over time and a major chip/crack on the tooth. Most people are in serve pain before the procedure is done.
BIological Tooth Extraction
Our goal at Pure Holistic Dental is to always try to save our patient’s tooth. However, there are situations when that is not possible, which include: no structure left above the gum, tooth is cracked/fractured or tooth has serve infection. Once we have determined the tooth must come out, we use a procedure to extract it as safely as possible.
At PHD, we believe that using the best and latest technology allows for the best care. From 3D Cone Beam X-Ray technology to Zirconia implants, we believe in using the best

The exam will also include x-rays if necessary for diagnosis, an oral cancer screening, and examination for any visual cues signalling disease or disfunction.
Can you describe your X-Ray technology?
Pure Holistic Dental / Biological Dentists uses digital 2&3D X-ray technology in limited scope, typically during first visit and to monitor problem spots as needed
- Use 3D CBCT scanning to view layers of tooth & bone structure in head & neck in order to diagnose underlying problems
- Use digital X-Ray technology instead of film to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation
- Homeopathic medication is also available to reduce the body’s reaction to X-Ray Radiation (reduce inflammation/itchiness)
