Definition of holistic dentistry:
Holistic dentistry is dental health care that uses a whole-body approach to treat the teeth, jaw, and related structures. We can address a wide range of dental issues, including issues stemming from toxicity related to dental restoration materials. We are strong believers in helping you choose the right foods to create good oral health and whole body health.
Our main holistic focus areas:
- Fluoride free dentistry: Since 1997 the Food and Drug Administration has mandated that all toothpaste with fluoride include a warning stating to keep out of the reach of children and that if too much is ingested to call the Poison Control Center immediately. We believe that if a material is strong enough that the Poison Control Center should be contacted, we don’t want to use it on our patients’ teeth.
- Nutritional counseling: Nutrition is a vital part of our holistic approach. Your diet promotes or prohibits good oral and systemic health. We will help you choose the right foods to help attain and maintain a healthy mouth.
- Mercury free dentistry: Mercury is a neurotoxin. We can help replace all metal in your mouth with BPA free materials and do any future dental work without the use of mercury or metals.
