Biological Dentist

What is a Biologic or Holistic Dentist?

A biological dentist or a holistic dentist is one who practices holistic dentistry. Holistic dentists use the principles of holistic medicine to treat their patients. It focuses on the whole person and not just on the symptoms that person is experiencing. Holistic treatment takes into consideration the patient’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Holistic dentists use a variety of holistic modalities to treat their patients, including nutrition counseling, supplements, and aromatherapy.

Biological dentists also focus on using biocompatible materials in their dental procedures. They avoid using materials such as mercury fillings, gold fillings, and fluoride-based materials. Instead, they opt for biocompatible materials such as composite resin, ceramics, and porcelain.

What Are the Advantages of Being Treated By a Biological/ Holistic Dentist?

  • Holistic Dentistry is Natural

Holistic dentistry involves using natural techniques and materials in place of conventional procedures. This philosophy is also applied to materials. Holistic dentists, rather than use metal fillings, use composite fillings that do not contain mercury and are free of dangerous chemicals that may be found in metal fillings.

  • Holistic Dentists Educate Patients on Dental Health

Holistic dentists educate their patients on the importance of dental health. They understand that oral health can have an impact on the overall health of the body. As a result, holistic dentists not only treat existing dental issues, they also focus on educating their patients on preventative care. This could include advice on proper brushing and flossing habits, what to expect regarding dental visits, and information on how diet impacts dental health.

  • Holistic Dentists Focus on Overall Health

Holistic dentists believe that oral health is intricately tied to overall health. They treat the mouth as an essential part of the body and aim to help patients achieve overall health. This means that they go beyond treating gum disease and cavities and focus on providing total health and wellness.

So, they take a variety of factors into account. For example, they may take a patient’s diet into consideration because a patient’s diet can play an important role when it comes to his or her oral health.
