Like many other holistic approaches to healthy living, holistic dentistry involves utilizing natural remedies and biocompatible compounds when repairing and restoring oral health. With an emphasis on the patient’s overall wellbeing, our team strives to help patients achieve balance and harmony with their oral health and general wellness. Our holistic dentist utilizes tooth-colored, biological fillings rather than potentially dangerous metals and fluoride-free toothpastes.
What is holistic dentistry?
Holistic dental services work to avoid potentially harmful materials by taking a more natural and preventive approach to dental medicine that strives to maintain the health of the entire body. Holistic dentistry is also called alternative or biological dentistry.
How is holistic dentistry different?
Alternative dentistry utilizes the latest technology like general dentistry by also emphasizing the connection between oral health and overall health. Our holistic dentist helps our patients achieve total wellness through preventive dental services such as professional cleanings along with taking each patient’s unique state of health into account.
With an emphasis on the patient’s overall wellbeing, our team strives to help patients achieve balance and harmony with their oral health and general wellness.
Preventive care is highly important at our practice. In addition to conducting meticulous oral examinations that closely evaluate tooth and gum health along with the health of tissues below the surface, we provide thorough professional cleanings that effectively remove tartar deposits above and below the gum line to help prevent periodontal disease and decay.
Other common approaches used in biological dentistry include using metal-free restorations that do not contain mercury and are biocompatible with the body’s natural tissues. In addition to avoiding metal and amalgam restorations, we also abstain from using fluoride because it can be harmful when digested.
When managing gum disease, our dentist uses soft-tissue lasers to clean away infected tissue that also promotes new tissue regeneration. Using lasers diminishes trauma to oral structures and is far less invasive than traditional oral surgeries on soft tissues.
Our practice also offers nutritional counseling to help reduce the presence of oral bacteria in the mouth and promote general wellness.
