Holistic dentistry is an oral care approach that considers the whole person, not just their teeth. It emphasizes prevention and wellness rather than simply treating problems as they arise. This approach can provide many benefits for both oral and overall health. In addition, holistic dentistry uses biocompatible materials with the smile to ensure the safe and effective treatment of common dental conditions. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry of Clearwater, Florida, work directly with patients to educate them on the benefits of holistic care to fully understand how it can help with oral health and wellness.
What are the Benefits of Holistic Dentistry?
Below are a few of the advantages of working with a dentist that focuses on holistic dentistry:
- Improved oral health. When you choose holistic and biocompatible dentistry, you will enjoy the advantages of improved oral health and wellness without materials that are harmful to the smile. This means a fresher breath, a more attractive smile, and increased self-confidence.
- Reduced inflammation. Inflammation of the smile is often caused by conditions such as periodontal disease. This results from an infection that has started in the soft tissues and is left to spread. When visiting a holistic dentist for preventative care, you can reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease, which can significantly damage the smile.
- Improved cardiovascular health. The bacteria in the mouth can carry through the bloodstream to other parts of the body and impact other organs. This is because of the oral-systemic connection, the link between the smile’s health and one’s overall health. When managing conditions such as periodontal disease, you also reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other conditions aggravated by infection and inflammation.
- Safe materials are used to restore the smile. In the past, and still today, many dentists used a material known as silver amalgam for cavity fillings. Continued studies show that these fillings are unsafe because of their high mercury content. Most silver amalgam fillings are made of approximately 50% mercury, which is harmful to the human body. Instead, our team focuses on biocompatible materials such as composite resin, which is far more appropriate for dental fillings and much more esthetic.
