What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biological dentistry, takes into account both the emotional and physical health of your entire body when treating issues with the teeth, gums, and mouth. This means using biocompatible materials that work with your body’s chemistry to ensure they will be safe for years to come.
It also involves using minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. Holistic dentists use alternative practices whenever possible, combining them with the latest dental technologies to provide a comprehensive approach to oral and dental health.
Benefits of Holistic Dentistry
Dr. Tara Hardin is focused on providing safe, effective treatments that will enhance your overall health, and that concern is evident in every procedure she does from routine dental cleanings to the most complex procedures. She evaluates whole body health when considering every aspect of dental care. Your oral health can have a major impact on the health of your body. Your oral health is directly connected to:
- Mental health
- Heart health
- Pulmonary health
For this reason, it is important to consider your body’s total health when considering treatment for dental issues.
Holistic Dentistry Vs. Traditional Dentistry
Traditional dentistry looks solely at the oral health of the patient, without considering the consequences of using materials such as amalgam commonly used in silver fillings, which contains high levels of mercury.
How Can Holistic Dentistry Impact my Overall Health?
Did you know that the health of your gums directly impacts your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke among other dangerous health conditions? A malocclusion of the jaw can negatively impact your ability to breathe, which can lead to sleep apnea. Patients who have sensitivities or allergies can see particular benefits from seeking a holistic dentist, as the materials used in treatment are gentle and safe for the entire body.
How did Holistic Dentistry Come to Be?
In 1978, a group of dentists came together seeking to create practices that examine the total health benefits of patients who obtain dental care. Traditional silver dental fillings can contain up to 50 percent mercury, a chemical compound that can cause damage to both your nervous and immune systems.
The traditional approach to many procedures such as periodontal cleanings and root canals can push harmful bacteria into the bloodstream, sending it out to the rest of your body. Holistic dentists sought to change the approach to various dental treatments, taking your overall health and wellbeing into consideration.
