Dental healthcare is something that everyone needs to take consideration of, and while this begins at home with good brushing and flossing, it is important to also have access to a dentist to provide dental care. There are a few options for this these days, with a holistic dentist being one of these. So how do these compare with a standard dentist?

General Approach

While traditional dentists will typically consider the prevention and care of teeth in isolation from the rest of the body, this is not the approach of a holistic dentist. These can also be known as biological or natural dentists due to the approach they take, which considers the mind and body of a patient, as well as the teeth, and the interaction between these. A patient is considered as a whole system rather than just a mouth, and holistic dentistry will typically look to treat dental problems by considering the overall health and wellness of a patient rather than focusing solely on the teeth. This can include providing advice on how proper nutrition and alternative treatments such as acupuncture can be used to prevent and care for dental disease, as well as considering the effects that dental and gum infections can have on the rest of the body. The aim is to promote the health of the body as a whole, with holistic dentistry typically drawing on both modern scientific dental treatments as well as natural healing.

Treatment of Tooth Decay

The tooth decay treatments that are offered by holistic dentists will look to avoid and eliminate any toxins that can enter the body through the use of dental material. This means that they will generally not use substances such as amalgam fillings, and will look to dental materials that are considered to be less harmful to the body over time. They will typically recommend that patients have existing amalgam fillings replaced, and will also offer alternatives to amalgam, such as composite resins, for any new fillings required by patients. In most cases they will offer a few different options for filling materials, in the understanding that not all patients are the same and different materials provide the option of finding the most appropriate filling solution for a particular patient.

Other Treatments
