How Holistic Dentistry can lead to healthy smiles
If you are unfamiliar with holistic dentistry, you might be wondering if it’s right for you. The answer is, “Yes!” Regardless of your age, health, or current dental problems; everyone is an ideal candidate for holistic dentistry. It is not a specific dental treatment, procedure, or technique. It is a different approach to healthcare, beyond just teeth, even beyond just physical health, to overall wellness and quality of life.
At Smile in Style, our practice is about you. We know that your oral health concerns and goals are unique, and require customised treatment to achieve optimal results. However, our concern extends beyond oral health. We consider your whole health, any diseases or medications that may affect, or be affected by, oral health, as well as nutrition, lifestyle, and many other factors. Additionally, we consider your wellbeing beyond just physical health. Our office is designed to be comfortable and inviting, and we use especially gentle techniques to take the stress out of dentistry. We also work with your schedule and budget, to ensure that your fabulous smile is not just a dream but becomes a reality.
Your health and safety is our top priority. Of course, all dentists want to fix tooth decay and gum disease, but the holistic approach is about much more than that. We understand that every decision we make, from dental materials to office cleaning supplies, can ultimately affect your wellbeing. In traditional dentistry, amalgam is considered an acceptable filling material. However, it is made of metal, contains about half mercury, may lead to fracturing in the surrounding tooth, and looks unattractive. It also requires extensive preparation, often involving the removal of a significant amount of healthy tooth material. We do not use amalgam or any mercury product in our practice; instead, we opt for biocompatible, tooth-coloured cosmetic filling material. In fact, all of our materials are carefully selected for their biocompatibility and quality.
