Also called biological dentistry or alternative dentistry, holistic dentistry is an approach in which your dentist assesses your total health and wellness to treat your oral health problems. A holistic dentist works with you to promote optimal health and wellness, rather than falling back on traditional dental treatment plans to improve your oral health.
What sets holistic therapy apart from traditional treatments is its emphasis on using all-natural solutions to treat your oral health problems and prevent further diseases from developing in the future.
In some cases, this simply means changing your diet, while in others, Dr. Mandalia may recommend nonsurgical alternatives to a procedure like gum surgery for the treatment of gum disease.
When visiting a holistic dentist, you can feel safe in knowing that they will go the distance to minimize your exposure to toxic materials like amalgam fillings and mercury-based products. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Mandalia may recommend:
Most holistic dentists are fundamentally opposed to using amalgam dental fillings, which contain liquid mercury, to treat cavities. Like other holistic dentists, Dr. Mandalia also focuses on nonsurgical gum disease treatments and root canal alternatives before subjecting patients to invasive surgical options.
Holistic dentistry encompasses both modern science and natural restoration to help heal your mind, body, and spirit to treat the root of your dental problem, rather than focusing only on alleviating the symptoms.
If you’re nervous about the use of harmful materials — fluoride, metal fillings, mercury, and more — in your dental treatments, then it may be time to try a more holistic solution. Dr. Mandalia provides natural remedies that can safely restore your beautiful smile, without using toxic materials or unnecessary invasive treatments.
