What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry often referred to as biological dentistry or alternative dentistry, is a practice of dentistry that seeks to provide dental treatments which support the patient’s entire body. Stemming from the belief in holistic medicine as a whole, holistic dentistry focuses on offering natural treatments and care instead of prescribing traditional medicines. At Genuine Dental Arts, we believe that any disease that affects your oral health also affects your overall health.
What does a holistic dentist do?
A holistic dentist has the same license, training, and education as a general dentist, meaning they both take care of a patient’s teeth and oral health.
Just like a general dentist, a holistic dentist focuses on the importance of flossing, brushing, routine check-ups, and medicinal treatments. However, a holistic dentist is much more concerned with how a dental procedure affects the entire body.
Unlike a general dentist, holistic dentists do not promote the use of fluoride-based treatments. We are also against the use of amalgam for dental implants. Amalgams may contain mercury and may cause irritation post-placement, which can lead to health issues down the road.
