What is Holistic Dentistry?
It is a widely believed fact that oral health does have an impact on your overall health. Holistic dentistry also is known as biologic dentistry, biological dentistry, alternative dentistry, unconventional dentistry or biocompatible dentistry, which follows the principles where as the high emphasis is given to the interlink between oral health and overall health. Holistic dentists consider the entire human body as one unit when offering treatment. This ensures that the dental care offered is completely safe and it positively contributes to the overall wellness of the body.
Holistic dentistry treatment methodologies used by different dentists may vary, but one principle that every holistic dentist firmly believes is that mercury and other non-bio compatible materials used for dental fillings and restorations are toxins and can be harmful to our body.
