Heavy Metal Free Wholistic Dentistry

 

Unlike standard dental practices, holistic dentistry aims to treat the whole person and not just the mouth, teeth and gums. In no way undermining the necessity for a thorough teeth cleaning that most of us get from a Doctor of Dental Surgey (DDS), the practice of holistic dentistry places more emphasis on prevention and overall health.



The entire notion of holistic health is that all the parts make up the whole. And yes, this even means your teeth. Did you know that daily flossing can add 6.4 years to your life on average. It's no exaggeration! Studies show that periodontal disease is directly proportionate with longevity. In fact, the specific numbers cite that that people with gingivitis and periodontitis have a 23-46% higher mortality rate than people with healthy teeth.

In other words, daily flossing will make your arteries younger. The reason being is that flossing helps remove the bacteria that causes plaque, which is the exact same bacteria that incites periodontal disease. Not only will this bacteria incite the immune system, it can cause inflammation and the actual swelling of the arteries, which in turn, leads to constricted blood flow and cardiovascular disease.



Any dentist in the know will tell you this. And holistic dentists go even further. Holistic dentistry informs the patient on how to preventively take care of the immune system early on and how to naturally combat microbial gum infections if and when they occur. Holistic dentists only use biocompatible materials, which are natural substances that do not stress the immune system, unlike Mercury. Holistic dentists also perform biological microscopic gum-care, which just so happens to be non-surgical.

Many people seek out holistic dentists to safely remove and dispose of Mercury amalgam fillings. Largely used in the past, Mercury amalgam fillings contain over 50% Mercury, which decreases over time.

That is Mercury leaching into the body. And it's common knowledge that Mercury and other heavy metals are highly dangerous and stressful to the immune system if repeatedly ingested. While some people are more sensitive to heavy metals than others, the fact remains there are other safer alternatives to using heavy metals in oral dentistry these days. Holistic dentistry is an excellent alternative to the norm.
