Integrative Oral Medicine

 

Integrative Oral medicine refers to the focus Dr. Koeppel has on not only his patients teeth, but systemic health and whole body wellness. This model of treatment is more comparable to a preventative medical model of treating diseases and not just the end result of such diseases.

This preventative model is set on disease prevention and risk management. In a strictly reparative model patients symptoms are treated (get a cavity, and fill it) and they happen over and over again ( i.e. periodontal pockets), but Dr. Koeppel treats the underlying cause of symptoms (bacteria, nutrition and home care).

Always of the cutting edge of technology, Dr. Koeppel offers 4 types of salivary testing to decode the bacteria breakdown in your oral cavity at any given time.

Similar to technology advances seen on shows such as CSI, he is able to pinpoint the exact bacteria in your mouth causing the actual symptoms in the first place.


He then is able to treat the source of the problem. He also offers oral cancer screenings to help catch cancer early.

Dr. Koeppel has a conservative approach so unnecessary costly treatments can be avoided, often recommending rinses and treatments to prevent cavities and disease all together and to reduce patient risk.
