Holistic dentistry is a form of dentistry that takes into account the entire physical and emotional health of a person in regards to their overall oral health. We use natural therapies (often combined with standard ones) to prevent, diagnose and treat oral diseases.
What is the relationship between oral health and overall health? Your oral health is very important to your overall health. The oral cavity or your mouth is the start point for many microbial infections, with access to the bloodstream. Oral health may be a risk factor for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and even strokes. Did you know 95% of Americans with diabetes also have gum disease? By looking at how oral cleanness can effect the entire health of our patients, we help boost more than jus your smile.
