Holistic medical care is a cornerstone to balanced health and well being. During the development of our practice we have teamed with many Holistic Doctors from around the Northeast to consult and develop an approach to best suit the needs of patients requiring a Holistic approach to dentistry. We treat chemically sensitive patients and conscientiously take precaution about safe Amalgam removal. We approach dentistry in an environmentally conscientious manner. We focus on our patients entire well being and emphasize body, mind, and spirit in our treatment plans.
We do not believe that good oral health starts and stops with just your mouth, there is an oral-systemic connection . Good oral health is a starting point and a major contributor to your overall health goals. We believe that mercury should be avoided. Silver fillings contain 50% mercury. As a result of silver filling corrosion, leakage occurs which allows mercury into your body’s systems. This can cause health-related stress on your immune system and heavy metal toxicity.
Our practice also uses lasers which help to reduce bacteria in the mouth. This cuts down on negative effects like inflammation within other areas of patients bodies. These bacteria are linked to cardiovascular disease, increased risk for stroke, increased sugar levels in diabetics and low birth weight babies.
