Your Mouth is Just One Part of The Whole
The Health of Your Mouth Affects Your Body
Maintaining good dental and oral health is more important than most patients realize. According to the CDC, it’s estimated that almost all American adults have tooth decay while over half of Americans have some form of gum disease. Unaddressed, these oral care problems can create avoidable infections that could have an effect on your overall health. Holistic dentistry treats your teeth while also taking your whole health into account.
What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic care is focused on looking at the entire picture of a patient’s health rather than focusing on one element or symptom. The goal of holistic dentistry is to consider how a patient’s habits, lifestyle choices, and other health problems could be affecting the condition of his or her teeth. For example, someone who has a deficiency of good bacteria in their digestive system could be more prone to having a deficiency of beneficial bacteria in their mouth. A holistic dentist will examine your entire health history to determine how to best treat your teeth and gums.
Holistic Dental Treatment Plan
If you are concerned about maintaining good dental health for the long haul, you might want to talk to your dentist about holistic dentistry. These are some of the ways that a holistic dentist can help you:
Prescribe a probiotic therapy that could help balance the flora in your mouth and gut.
Use natural solutions instead of antibiotic therapy to soothe gum-related issues.
Use an alternative to amalgam fillings, to minimize the chance of adding toxins to the body.
Consult you about how the various systems in the body affect your dental health.
Benefits of Holistic Dentistry
Any type of holistic health plan is beneficial because it addresses the patient’s needs beyond just their immediate dental symptoms (pain or infections). Holistic dentistry looks at a patient’s lifestyle, environmental considerations, and overall health concerns to figure out what would be the best way to preserve his or her dental health. It’s also good to know what’s going on in your oral cavity because it could be linked to other health-related concerns.

This was probably the first time I actually had a great dental experience. Dr. Rashid is kind and easy to talk to. I chose her as a dentist based on the reviews here, and I would have to agree with all of these positive recommendations. I had not been to the dentist in a few years, so I was a bit hesitant. I needed a deep cleaning and a check up. I had a deep cleaning in the past that was excruciatingly painful. This was not the case with Dr. Rashid. She took great care in making it as comfortable as possible with the least amount of pain. My last dentist was into high pressure sales, while Dr. Rashid was the opposite. She was honest about what I needed and did not recommend unnecessary procedures to maximize profits. Highly Recommended!!!
