Radiation White Paper

White Paper on Radiation from Natural Dentistry Introduction

You are exposed to radiation every day, and more than half your radiation exposure is typically due to your medical care. Is it really time to get another x-ray? How risky is it? Is there a simple way for you to make such decisions when confronted with the possibility for another x-ray for your dental or medical care?

What do you actually know about radiation – those invisible particles and waves – intersecting with your body? Do you worry about it?

Should you worry about how many x-rays you have?

If you’re like most people, you ask yourself – and maybe the dental assistant or doctor – questions like:

“Do I have to have x-rays?”
“What levels of radiation will I be exposed to?”
“Is it one big x-ray or a lot of little ones?”
“Is it digital or not – and what’s the difference?”
“Is an x-ray harmful or uncomfortable?”
“What are the side effects?”

What usually happens is that you get a 1-line answer, or a 2-minute discussion and then the technician or doctor goes on with your treatment. Knowledge is power, and at Natural Dentistry, we want to help you know the facts so that you can be in charge of your own health. So today, we at Natural Dentistry are going to change all that because our mission is to empower our patients.

Knowledge also opens the door to responsibility. With knowledge you can better control your own health – which is the whole point of holistic natural approaches.

At Natural Dentistry, we call this INFORMED CHOICE, and it is a big move up from “informed consent” where you don’t even know what your alternatives might be.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson at Clearwater, FL

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

My husband had a severely abscessed RC removed 3 weeks ago by Dr. Beata Carlson at the Behm Natural Dentistry Clinic. All I can say is that the experience was nothing short of amazing. Beginning with the receptionist Yana, the entire staff was very patient and caring. Dr. Carlson spent 4 hours making sure that my husband was completely comfortable during the procedure which included extraction, thoroughly cleaning the abscessed area, PRF, ozone treatment and bone graft. There was no swelling at all after the procedure and minimal pain. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for true holistic dentistry.
