What is a holistic dentist?
To understand holistic dentistry, a patient must have a concept of holistic care. Holistic care considers the body as a whole and does not just focus on the mouth. The oral cavity is linked to the body in many different ways, and by understanding the oral-systemic connection, patients can obtain the dental care they need to also impact their overall health. In fact patients with periodontal disease, an infection of the gums, may also increase their risk of developing heart disease or experiencing strokes. This connection makes it incredibly important to get the care you need.
What services are offered by a holistic dentist?
A holistic dentist is a dentist that focuses on more than just the oral cavity. Dr. Carl McMillan takes a specialized approach to dental care by ensuring the least toxic and most beneficial materials and techniques are used in repairing your smile. This includes:
- Avoidance of silver amalgam fillings. Silver amalgam fillings continued to show that they release mercury toxins into the mouth and body, and increases the risk of potential mercury toxicity.
- Replacing silver amalgam fillings in a mercury-safe manner. Dr. Carl McMillan is a member of the IAOMT which sets forth standards for removing and replacing harmful fillings via the SMART (safe mercury amalgam removal technique) standards.
- No metal. Metal is not always compatible with the body and is avoided entirely whenever possible through Holistic Dental Centers.
