In the past, dental practices were mainly focused on oral issues and not addressing a patients’ overall wellness. Increasingly, more and more dental providers are shifting to holistic dentistry, which may seem a bit out of the norm for a dentist. Holistic dentistry focuses on the total health of patients. At Holistic Dental Centers, our offices in both Cary and Cornelius do not just treat symptoms. Our methods promote oral health in a way that helps improve total body health.
There are many advantages to holistic dental care, some of the most popular among our patients include:
Holistic dental procedures do not just focus on the issue being treated. Comprehensive treatment involves considering the materials, techniques, and methods used for any dental problem. At the center of the procedure is always a focus on the patients overall wellness. We carefully choose the material used in dental restorations and always look for the least invasive way to handle an issue. In addition, we place a great deal of importance on prevention and healthy lifestyles to help promote oral health.
We do not always look for the quickest way to fix a problem. Instead, we take a step back and try to uncover the cause of any issues you are experiencing. There are times when an issue that presents itself in the mouth is actually caused by a health condition elsewhere in the body. This approach allows us to address the problem within your mouth and uncover other problems that you may not have known about.
Metals such as silver, copper, and mercury were once very common in dental restorations. There is a lot of research that have found these materials can compromise patients’ health. All of our dental procedures are done with the safest, most biocompatible materials to avoid adversely affecting wellness.
We want you to have a beautiful smile and a healthy life. Everything we do in our office, from general check-ups to extensive restorations is always done with this belief in mind.
