Why is Holistic Dentistry Right for Me?

Posted .

Alternative health has grown in popularity, and along with it, holistic dentistry treatment. Another name for alternative dental health is biological dentistry. Regarding this philosophy, it essentially means treating the whole person, instead of just their teeth & gums. At Dowsett Dental Health, we offer services to our patients, who are looking for an alternative to traditional dentistry. Dr. Nathalie Dowsett offers holistic dentistry in Calgary, Alberta, so contact us for a consultation.

The many benefits to receiving holistic dentistry can include:
-A decreased chance of lead exposure, such as what happens with mercury, silver, or any other metals that can have adverse effects
-Symptomology that includes head or neck aches, facial tenderness, and teeth & gum soreness or swelling/pain, which can overlap or be the result of dental issues
-Less chance of infections, dental or physical disease
-Reduced incidence of allergic reactions to dental materials or other equipment or treatment

Along with the many benefits, Dr. Nathalie Dowsett believes your total health is improved – including emotional, mental, psychical, & dental health, when you choose holistic dentistry.

There are some key differences between traditional and holistic dentistry; however, the largest one tends to be philosophy. When it comes to traditional dentistry, the dentist’s main concern focuses on treating the symptoms of dental disease, as opposed to holistic dentistry, which treats the underlying cause of the symptoms, which can then be remedied. The ultimate goal is to ensure the work done does not cause issues with your health.
