WHAT IS HOLISTIC DENTISTRY?
Holistic dentistry considers not only dental health but also physical and emotional health. With a holistic approach, the dentist will use the most biocompatible materials available to minimise any adverse effects on the body. It involves following strict removal protocols to safely remove amalgam fillings. After amalgam removal, the patient is taken through a personalised detoxification program to eliminate heavy metals, mercury and other toxins in the body.
WHY CHOOSE HOLISTIC?
Your mouth, the beginning of the Gastrointestinal tract (GI Tract), has a great impact on gut health and general health, since 80% of the immune system is focused around the gut.
Holistic dentistry recognises the immense impact your oral health has on general health and treats you accordingly.
COSTS AND APPOINTMENTS
Costs and appointments both vary depending on the procedures completed.
ASK YOUR INEEDA DENTIST
Do you use special mercury vapour filters and do you offer oxygen? Your holistic dentist should use these for the procedure to remove amalgam fillings.
Do you use a rubber dam? A rubber dam is used to protect the mouth from pieces of amalgam that are being removed.
Do you recommend fluoride products and fluoridation? Holistic dentists should have an alternative preventive program for patients who do not want to use any fluoride products. Usually, this is by implementing excellent oral hygiene through diet, hydration management and nutrition.
