Holistic Dentistry Q&A

What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentists consider each patient’s general health and well-being rather than just focusing on oral health.

Conventional doctors and dentists often limit patient involvement to a specific problem. For example, treating gum disease and offering advice on good oral hygiene. While you might receive excellent treatment, you get far more with holistic dentistry.

Your holistic dentist at Dental Studio of Pasadena spends time looking at every aspect of your life that can affect your oral health. That can include your diet, work, lifestyle, and stress levels.

This functional approach enables your dentist to help you make changes that improve not just your oral health but also your physical and mental well-being.

What problems can holistic dentistry help with?

Holistic dentists treat all dental problems, just like any other dentist. This includes gum disease, tooth decay, extractions (tooth removal), infections, and abscesses. They perform oral surgery and are experts in dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

Holistic dentists do orthodontic corrections (teeth straightening) with braces and aligners and fit partial and complete dentures.

Why should I consider holistic dentistry?

Research shows that oral health disorders like gum disease can affect organ function throughout your body. Proven links exist between poor oral health and:

  • Heart disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Pancreatic and kidney cancer
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

The Dental Studio of Pasadena team’s commitment to holistic dentistry means that patients benefit from better all-around health and wellness.

What treatments are used in holistic dentistry?

Many of the treatments holistic dentists use are the same as conventional dentists. But a holistic dentist might use additional treatments that traditional dentistry doesn’t.

Ozonated water is one example. Many dentists use distilled water for nonsurgical procedures because it’s purer than tap water. Ozonated water is also pure, but with the added benefit of containing extra oxygen. It’s good for deep cleaning and oral surgery, reducing inflammation and promoting natural healing.

Holistic dentists also offer alternatives to the traditional materials used in dental procedures. For instance, you might be able to choose zirconia dental implants that contain no metal.
