Being part of the holistic health movement, for most individuals, is not a choice but a necessity. In today’s environment, we are constantly bombarded with hazards and toxins. When considering the dietary and environmental health hazards one must navigate to remain healthy, it makes sense to incorporate holistic dentistry into your routine.
Holistic or natural dentistry is also known as biological dentistry. When researching natural dentists, use any of those terms to find what you’re looking for. The number of practicing holistic dentists is growing, indicating that more individuals understand and realize that oral health affects your entire body. Be sure that your dentist understands and utilizes the foundation of holistic dental treatment, including mercury-safe treatment, biocompatibility testing for dental materials, fluoride safety and hygiene, and management of dental infection.
The management of oral health can use many modalities including acupuncture, homeopathy, nutrition, naturopathic medicine, and chiropractic treatment. These can be integrated with other treatments for detoxifying the body. At Natural Dental Arts, many of our patients utilize these modalities, but most have found, that good health can only be achieved if proper oral health is established.
At our practice, we follow the foundation of holistic dental treatment. Managing dental infections is of the utmost importance when managing health because the infection could spread throughout the body. It’s surprising how many health conditions are actually triggered by oral health problems, such as an unchecked dental infection. We also address oral electro-galvanism caused by multiple heavy metals being in fillings or crowns in your mouth. These electrical currents can potentially cause problems of the natural energy of the body, especially the nervous system. Additionally, we use ozone which is used to kill infections without harmful side effects.
Our practice recognizes how hard you work to maintain your health. Staying healthy allows you to live your fullest life, one where you can attend to your goals, ambitions, family, friends, and responsibilities, without worrying about running out of energy or stamina. Because oral health impacts overall body health, natural dentistry is the ideal solution for a conscientious consumer.
Becoming and staying healthy today is becoming increasingly more difficult, but maintaining your oral health through natural dentistry can contribute a lot to your overall wellbeing.
