Holistic dentistry

I need a dentist expert tips

Be cautious of a holistic dentist who recommends a root canal, excessive x-rays or wisdom tooth removal before exploring other options: Holistic dentists will help you find an alternative to healing a tooth that may otherwise require Root Canal treatment. They may alternatively suggest the complete removal of the tooth, in a healthy way, to avoid future complications. Holistic dentists will only use x-rays on an as-needed basis and will ensure proper protection during x-rays. Holistic dentists also generally suggest leaving wisdom teeth as they are, so long as they are not causing trouble.

Holistic dentists that do not use biocompatible materials: Holistic dentists should use biocompatible materials to ensure that the materials are not harmful to the body and will often test patients via kinesiology or by blood test to be sure their body will not reject the material. 

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.
