Holistic Dentistry in San Francisco & Glendale, CA

Holistic Dentistry in San Francisco & Glendale, CA

Holistic dentistry is an approach that focuses on treating the entire person rather than just their teeth and gums. It focuses on both the health of the mouth and the body as a whole.

Holistic dentistry looks at the mouth, teeth, and surrounding structures as a system that is greater than the sum of its parts – the parts being the teeth, gums, and bone. It works to ensure that the parts of the system are working together harmoniously and contributing to overall health and wellness. Extractions are considered a last resort and only done when absolutely necessary. Restorative procedures such as dental crowns and bridges are also only performed after other options have been considered. In many cases, natural remedies can be used before jumping to medications or surgical treatments. The goal of holistic dentistry is to provide the most conservative treatment possible to restore optimal oral health.

What Does a Holistic Dentist Do?

Holistic dentists practice a more natural approach to dentistry. Rather than masking pain and discomfort with medications, holistic dentists work to address the source of your oral health issues. Holistic dentists follow the belief of “treat the cause, not the symptoms.”

What Do Holistic Dentists Treat?

Holistic dentists treat a wide variety of conditions, including cavities, gum disease, and TMJ disorder. They also treat conditions such as headaches and chronic fatigue. There are many benefits of holistic dentistry. It’s known to promote good oral health, prevent gum disease, improve whole-body wellness, and reduce stress.

A holistic dentist looks at the bigger picture. All aspects of your health are taken into consideration. Therefore, our holistic dentist will focus on the health of the entire body and will check for symptoms in other body parts that could be connected to your current oral issue. They understand that a healthy mouth results from a healthy lifestyle. As a result, holistic dental treatment often focuses not only on the teeth and gums but also on nutrition, sleep habits, and other lifestyle factors. Additionally, our holistic dentist may utilize treatments other than conventional ones, such as acupuncture or acupressure, to promote good health in the mouth. Some holistic dental practices also use natural alternatives for filling cavities or use fluoride-free toothpaste.
