Raleigh residents are looking for holistic dental care

Residents Are Looking For Holistic Dental Care

Studies have shown that there is a connection between the health of the mouth and the health of the body. Medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s, strokes, heart attacks, and diabetes have also been linked to dental problems. It makes sense, then, that some dentists would begin to look at patient care from an entire body, holistic level, rather than only treating symptoms of teeth and gum issues.


Dr. McMillan of Holistic Dental Centers believes that everything that happens in a patient’s mouth can, and often does, affect the patient’s overall health. As such they are committed to ensuring that that every procedure that takes place in their office is not only safe, but is also beneficial to the patient.


Both dentists believe in using only safe materials. For example, the office is mercury and metal-safe, as metals have been shown to be harmful to patient health. Additionally, Dr. McMillan is trained and experienced in removing mercury fillings, utilizing a series of necessary steps to ensure that neither the patient, nor his dental team, are exposed to dangerous toxins during the procedure. Further, the dentists offer a referral for biocompatibility testing and produce fillings and dental restoration materials from a variety of materials to ensure that the materials used in your mouth will not harm your body.


Holistic dentistry is about more than not using mercury fillings, however. It’s also important to
Dr. McMillan that your cosmetic restorations give you the aesthetic results you want, but in a completely safe and the least invasive method possible.


Perhaps, what sets holistic dentists apart from other dentists the most is that you will always be in charge of your treatment plan. Our team will treat you with the respect and courtesy that you deserve. We will explain all of your options, allow you to make the decision you feel is best for you, and then support your choice with excellent, and gentle, care.


If you live in the Raleigh area and are searching for a dental practice that cares about your health as much as they care about your teeth and gums, call Holistic Dental Centers to schedule a consultation. We’ll meet with you to discuss your concerns, provide you with a comprehensive exam, and together we’ll make sure that your health and your mouth are a priority.
