What Are the Benefits of Holistic Dentistry?

Posted .

Have you ever wondered what the benefits of holistic dentistry are? We try to strive for procedures and methods that do not use harmful toxins and cancer-causing chemicals in our treatments to ensure your oral health and overall well-being have a chance to thrive for many years to come.

Fluoride is dangerous. It has been proven dangerous and is linked to cancers, death, overdose, bone disease, fluorosis, and a host of other health disorders. Although sugar is a primary player in the battle against our tooth enamel, the negative effects of fluoride are not worth the risk.

Another dangerous product used in dentistry in mercury. Mercury has been used in dental amalgams for over a century, and despite now knowing of the serious health risks it poses, some continue to use it. Even at the smallest of doses, mercury is extremely dangerous, but continues to be used as a cheap binding agent in dental amalgam fillings.

Holistic dentistry strives to avoid chemicals and toxins that are not biocompatible with the human body. Thus, many procedures such as fillings and crowns have alternative materials in their repertoire within holistic dentistry treatments.

With holistic dentistry, your smile will not only look better, but it can be stronger and healthier.
