A holistic dentist focuses on the patient’s overall health along with treating their oral health. Holistic dentists are aware of the fact that your oral health affects your overall health. They use safe and biocompatible dental equipment, procedures, and materials that do not compromise your overall health. Through a biocompatible and holistic dentistry approach, they determine the best and safest dental treatment plan for their patients.
What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biocompatible or biological dentistry, considers the whole person and looks after their overall health. It involves the use of biocompatible techniques and materials and safe mercury removal. It also aims at educating the patients and encouraging them so they can live a healthy life. Holistic dentistry involves:
- Safe removal of mercury “silver” fillings
- Mercury-free dentistry
- Safe and cosmetic composite fillings, porcelain/ceramic inlays, onlays, and crowns
- Low radiation digital x-rays
- Slow speed drilling
What Is Safe Mercury Removal?
Mercury fillings can be dangerous to remove when the proper removal technique is not followed. It can lead to mercury exposure, and mercury accumulation in the body can cause damage to important organs like the brain, kidneys, and more. It’s essential that dentists follow a proper and safe method of extracting amalgam fillings so that mercury exposure can be minimized. Mercury-free dentistry aims at safe removal of mercury fillings without compromising your health.
