What is a holistic approach to dentistry?

Traditional vs Holistic

The traditional dentist only focuses on fixing problems in the mouth and doesn’t address any problems that might arise in overall health from problematic dental materials. The holistic dentist sees the mouth and the materials in the mouth as an integral part of a patient’s whole body health.

The mouth does not exist in a vacuum. Getting holes in your teeth (cavities) is not normal.

Human Organism

Dentistry that considers the human organism in a holistic way. No region of our body is as heavily saturated with heavy metals, alloys, toxic materials, infections and inflammations as the mouth and jaw areas.

Up to 60% of chronic illnesses are connected to interference fields in the oral cavity. Using a Holistic approach sees the immune system improve significantly, simply by removing metals and treating the sources of inflammation in the mouth and jaw areas. Patients have an improved chance of recovery by relieving and strengthening the immune system and by eliminating other harmful factors.

A therapeutic approach that aims to completely eliminate all stressors as quickly as possible and to restore each system to its proper working order. It is clear that profound healing is only possible through the application of a comprehensive, interactive therapy concept that fully considers all biological, medical and dental aspects.

Holistic Approaches

Holistic dental practices, see ozone therapy as a natural, non-toxic solution to treat various dental issues, including root canals. In fact, this treatment can help prevent further issues down the road, like recurrent decay.

“Ozone can act as a disinfectant, an oxygen donor, an immunomodulator, a paradoxical inducer of antioxidant enzymes, a metabolic enhancer, an inducer of endothelial nitric acid synthase and possibly an activator of stem cells with consequent neovascularization and tissue reconstruction”.

-Dr Velio Bocci – the world’s greatest expert in ozone therapy

These characteristcs make ozone a very powerful oxydizer and a tremendous killer of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
We use Ozone Therapy to decontaminate the bone after an extraction, before placing an implant and during cavitation treatment. The sterilising effect penetrates the bone to a depth of up to 2,5 cm and is completely harmless to human cells.

Alternatives to a traditional root canal

The most common holistic alternatives to root canals are: Zirconia implants: These biocompatible tooth restorations provide unparalleled stability, function, and feel. They are used to replace your natural tooth root and are topped with a natural-looking crown.
