An Overview of Holistic Dentistry
There is a large percentage of our population who desires an approach to dentistry that is gentler and more preventive in nature than the standard conventional methods. These patients are interested in dentistry that focuses on healing the mouth as well as the rest of the body without the use of toxic restorative materials and chemicals.
That means opting for metal-free, mercury-free, BPA-free, and fluoride-free procedures with a greater emphasis on caring for the whole mouth and controlling infections in a manner that won’t harm the rest of the body.
As healthcare professionals, we couldn’t agree more, and we are pleased to offer our patients high quality dentistry from a holistic perspective. Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biological dentistry or alternative dentistry, considers the impact on the rest of the body when dental treatment is performed on the jaws, teeth, and gums.
Our healthcare and treatment philosophies are guided by the following principles:
- Voluntary abstinence from dental materials or procedures that could be potentially toxic to the body. This includes rejecting the use of mercury (amalgam) fillings and products containing fluoride.
- Focus and consideration for the ways in which the dental care that we provide may impact the rest of your body as well as your immune system. We also respect and appreciate the relationship between oral problems and the digestive system, the heart, chronic headaches, and even your sleep patterns.
- The belief that the state of your oral health is influenced by nutritious eating habits and the removal of certain foods from your diet.
