Choosing between common healthcare and alternative healthcare is never an easy decision. But when has doing anything new ever been an easy decision to make? Like it or not, your teeth need to be examined by a dental professional on a regular basis even if you have been taking impeccable care of your mouth. If you are the type of person that hates going to the dentist, holistic dentistry might be the right choice for you. Who knows, it might be the best decision you have ever made.
As a holistic Dentist Dr. Saadia believes that the dental care relates to the entire person. As a pediatric holistic dentist,the appropriate care goes beyond oral health, it involves building a lifelong relationship with dental care.
Treating the Whole Child
Generally speaking, anything that is prefaced with the word Holistic aims to look at the whole picture. As such, it can be concluded that traditional dentistry aims to only treat the problem at it’s source. With Holistic Dentistry, the problem is treated at it’s source, but the cause of the problem is also determined in some cases. By looking at some of the causes of the pain, Practitioners of Holistic Dentistry aim to use the ounce of prevention and the pound of cure at the same time in order to eliminate any relapses.
Some of the most common holistic dentistry practices are:
- Not using mercury fillings as well as practicing proper mercury removal
- Consideration of the affects that metals have on the body
- the benefits of a multi-disciplinary healthcare
- Preventative Nutritional Therapies
