Experienced holistic dentists in West Palm Beach relieve symptoms with biocompatible materials and techniques
A truly biological and holistic dental practice is built around the idea that the wellness of your teeth, gums, and oral health affects the wellness of your entire body.
An online search for “gum disease and overall health” yields millions of results. Periodontitis can affect or be affected by a number of conditions that at first glance have nothing to do with oral health, including:
- Heart disease
- Poor diabetes control
- Cognitive decline
- Chronic fatigue
- Birth defects
Bacteria and inflammation are at the root of advanced gum disease, and have been linked to serious conditions affecting other parts of the body. As a holistic practice, the dental team will work with you to prevent the need for restorative procedures. They can advise on everything from nutrition for healthy teeth and healthy body, to lifestyle modifications that can dramatically improve the quality of your life. For instance, an answer to debilitating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) symptoms can be found in the dentist’s office, in the form of advanced ozone therapy, TENS stimulation, or a customized occlusal orthotic.
The importance of preventing disease and decay can’t be stated too frequently. Dental materials can mimic natural, healthy teeth, but for optimal look, feel, and function, nothing beats natural tooth structure. Not all dental materials are created equal, and some of the most common types of treatments to restore teeth present potential risks to health.
Common fillings may appear to be silver in color, but they are actually made from a mix of metals. Silver, tin, and copper are combined with mercury. The International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology reports silver fillings can contain as much mercury as a thermometer. Chronic exposure to mercury through fillings can even affect unborn children, as mercury crosses the blood-brain barrier and passes through the placenta.
You can also be exposed to even higher levels of mercury through vapors released during the process of removing silver fillings. It is not enough for a practice to only use non-metal fillings. The best holistic dentists in West Palm Beach must be equipped to safely remove the old filling.
Our dental team follows standards established by the IAOMT to prevent the release of toxic vapors.
