Mercury Free, Biological, Neuromuscular, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry

Dr. Kelly Lytle practices biological, mercury free and mercury safe dentistry. Her goal is to treat her patients in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about dental wellness with her patients so that they may make educated decisions about their oral health. She fully understands the important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"

Biological/holistic dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a wide range of healthy treatment options. Because of her advanced training and emphasis on total health, Dr. Lytle takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science and technical experience with a deep concern for her patients' physical and emotional well-being and comfort.

As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Lytle is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have a negative impact on overall health. Because of this concern, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam (silver) fillings in a safe way. To accomplish this, she utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent holistic dental organizations.

This Whole Body philosophy stresses the use of safe biocompatible dental materials and non-invasive treatment whenever possible. Dr. Lytle also works closely with highly qualified health professionals to assist her in her efforts to return the patient to optimal oral and overall health. Her Biological approach to dental treatment means that she treats the teeth, jaw, and related oral structures, with specific regard to how that treatment will affect the entire body.

Neuromuscular Dentistry. Dr. Lytle also practices Neuromuscular Dentistry, which is technique that emphasizes the important relationship of a correct bite (occlusion) to oral and overall health. When the teeth don't properly occlude, the result could be muscular and TMJ problems that can cause headaches, pain in the jaw joints and sore neck and shoulders.

When proper occlusion has been obtained, it's possible to find relief from many of the symptoms related to bite problems, including optimal dental chewing function, improved oral health and longer lasting dental fillings. If you suffer from any symptoms related to the jaw, head, neck, and shoulders be sure to ask us about how neuromuscular dentistry could help you.

Dr. Lytle is a strong advocate of continuing education because it allows her to give you, and your family, the most modern and state-of-the-art dental care. Each year she takes many hours of continuing education courses and she has advanced training in many areas of biological, cosmetic and traditional dentistry.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom

I know Dr. Lytle personally and she is a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. I have a great deal of respect for her as a persona and dentist and am impressed with the depth of her knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health. She also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of her patients.

Her concern for her patients health, her on-going training in holistic, cosmetic (especially with the renowned LVI), and traditional dentistry; along with her commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes her ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with her commitment to educating her patients and dedication to mercury safe dentistry as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.

Dr. Lytle has taken extensive training in an exciting new dental field, neuromuscular dentistry, so be sure to ask her about it. She is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury Free Dentists (IAMFD). I encourage you to visit her website to learn more about her and her approach to healthy dentistry. When you visit her office please tell her where you found out about her and say hello to her for me. Thanks!
