Holistic Dentistry in Highland Heights, OH

Holistic dentistry is an approach to dental care that considers the overall health of the individual and the interconnectedness of oral health with the rest of the body. It focuses on using biocompatible materials and natural, minimally invasive treatments to promote overall well-being.

Our holistic dentists believe that there's a strong connection between oral health and overall health. We understand that problems in the mouth can have far-reaching effects on other parts of the body. Rather than just fixing cavities or performing root canals, we strive to identify and address the underlying causes of dental issues.

Treatment Techniques Used in Holistic Dentistry

  • One common technique used in holistic dentistry is biological dentistry. This involves using biocompatible materials for procedures such as fillings and crowns. Instead of amalgam fillings containing mercury, holistic dentists use safer alternatives like composite resin or porcelain.
  • Another technique employed is ozone therapy. Ozone gas has antimicrobial properties and can be used to disinfect teeth and gums, reducing the need for antibiotics or other harsh chemicals. It also promotes faster healing and reduces inflammation.
  • Nutritional counseling plays a significant role in holistic dental care. Dentists educate patients about how diet can impact oral health and recommend nutrient-rich foods that promote strong teeth and gums.

Benefits of Holistic Dentistry

  • One of the key benefits of holistic dentistry is its emphasis on using natural and non-toxic materials for treatments. Traditional amalgam fillings contain mercury, which can be harmful to overall health. In contrast, holistic dentists use biocompatible materials such as porcelain or composite resins that are safer for the body.
  • Another benefit of holistic dentistry is its focus on preventive care. Holistic practitioners believe in addressing underlying causes rather than simply treating symptoms. They may recommend dietary changes, stress reduction techniques, and other lifestyle adjustments to improve oral health.
  • Additionally, holistic dentists often take a more conservative approach to treatment compared to their traditional counterparts. Rather than automatically recommending invasive procedures like root canals or extractions, they explore less invasive alternatives first.
  • Some studies suggest that oral health has an impact on overall well-being. By taking a whole-body approach to dental care, holistic dentistry aims to promote better general health and potentially reduce the risk of systemic diseases related to poor oral hygiene.
