Problems in the mouth can signal potential problems elsewhere in the body. And problems in the body can also be a sign of something amiss in the mouth.
This is why your whole health matters to us: mouth, body, mind, and spirit. And it’s why we offer services like Alfa screening – an FDA-cleared tool that we use for
- Early detection of emerging health issues.
- Identifying root causes of troubling symptoms.
- Building a customized treatment plan for you.
This screening – provided by our on-staff nurse practitioner – can discover disturbances in the body on a cellular level, often before they would show up on traditional test such as MRI,
x-ray, mammogram, or ultrasound.
This whole body scan – 25% of which focuses on your teeth – is gentle, painless, and non-invasive.
We simply use a wand to touch your body at specific points, reading the temperature at each. Then we gently stress your body by having you stand in a very cold room and repeat the scanning.
The temperature patterns let us see if the body is in dysregulation or not – and how.
Alfa screening can’t be used to diagnose disease. Further clinical testing is needed for that. But it can give you information you can use and a detailed report you can share with your healthcare providers for follow-up.
