More and more dentists are gravitating toward a holistic approach to practicing dentistry. Holistic dentistry focuses on promoting total health rather than simply treating symptoms. At Holistic Dental Centers, we integrate natural and biocompatible philosophies with traditional dental care to help our patients achieve total wellbeing.
We’ve found that our patients are quick to discover the benefits of holistic dental care, including:
At the heart of holistic dentistry is a focus on the entire body. We are aware of the fact that the materials used in the mouth can have effects far beyond the mouth, which is why we are very careful when choosing which ones to use.
In the past, dentistry relied heavily on the use of metals such as silver, copper, and mercury in dental restorations. We are now aware of the dangers and toxicity associated with using these materials and we understand how they can compromise your health. We utilize only biocompatible materials to provide the safest and healthiest treatment options available. We are specially trained in the safe removal of mercury.
A holistic dentist does not just “fix” a problem. Our goal is to dig deeper and understand the cause of the problem. In many instances, the problems in the mouth can be traced to problems in other areas of the body as well. When we address issues within the mouth, we always have a focus on improving overall health and quality of life. Imbalances between the body and mouth can cause overall wellness to be compromised.
We offer a full range of dental services for the entire family including restorations like crowns, bridges, and implants, and cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding. We also offer sedation dentistry for our patients who experience dental fear. We want to help make sure your anxiety doesn’t put your oral health at risk. With sedation dentistry, patients can finally relax in the dentist’s chair and receive the treatment they deserve.
