Why holistic dental care is important for residents in the West Palm Beach area
Holistic dentistry is a philosophy and way of practicing dental care firmly rooted in the belief that there is a systemic connection between the mouth and the entire body. Holistic dental care focuses on improving a patient’s wellbeing and not just treating a single dental issue. Conditions of the mouth can affect the entire body and can increase a patient’s risk of heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, and diabetes. The team at Pure Dental Care focus on the patient’s health beyond just the teeth and gums.
One of the ways holistic dental care can help improve health is by using only safe, biocompatible materials. For many years, amalgam was considered a safe material to use in dental fillings. Amalgam fillings are composed of a variety of metals, one of them being mercury. Concerns about mercury toxicity and the connections to health issues have led some dental providers to switch to mercury-free solutions. We not only use mercury-free, biocompatible materials, but we are also expertly trained to remove mercury fillings safely. We take special care to handle the mercury properly to ensure neither our patients nor the staff are exposed to mercury toxins. We also dispose of the mercury properly to avoid damage to the environment.
In addition to being safe, mercury-free materials such as porcelain are tooth-colored and extremely strong, which makes them natural looking and durable solution.
Holistic dentistry is not solely about the use of mercury-free materials. For Pure Dental Care, holistic dental care means investing time to understand the causes behind your dental issues. This allows him and his team to properly diagnose and offer the least-invasive, safest, solutions available to restore your health. By taking a proactive approach to your health, we are often able to uncover potential problems early, and address them with simple solutions.
