Holistic Dentistry

Holistic Dentistry is an approach to Dentistry that promotes health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease. This approach to Dentistry encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the worlds great traditions on natural healing. It is sometimes called "Biological" dentistry or "Biocompatible" dentistry. Holistic Dentistry acknowledges and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her "Teeth".

The basic principles of dental holistic health practices are:

  • Proper nutrition for the prevention and reversal of degenerative dental disease
  • Avoidance and elimination of toxins from dental materials
  • Prevention and treatment of dental malocclusion (bite problems=physical imbalance)
  • Prevention and treatment of gum disease at its biological basis
