Holistic dentists are genuine dentists who have received the same training as traditional dentists. However, holistic dentistry is a more holistic approach to oral health care that takes into account the whole person, not just their teeth and gums. This means that holistic dentists use treatments and materials that are safe for the whole body, not just the mouth.
If you’re concerned that a dead tooth may be causing toxicity in your body, there are a few tests that can be done to check for possible problems. A holistic dentist can measure the electrical conductivity of the tooth to see if there is any unusual activity going on. They can also test the saliva around the tooth to see if there are any harmful bacteria present. If you’re still not sure, a simple blood test can check for toxins in your system that may be coming from the dead tooth.
At our practice, we are mercury-safe. This means that we avoid using mercury in any dental treatments or procedures. Mercury is a toxic metal that can be harmful to your health. We believe in holistic dental care and want to ensure that our patients are receiving the safest and most effective care possible.
While fluoride is often added to toothpastes and other dental products, we generally do not recommend fluoride treatments or fluoridated water. We believe in taking a holistic approach to dentistry, which means working to prevent dental problems before they start. Fluoride can be helpful in preventing cavities, but it can also be harmful if used in excess.
