Is Holistic Dentistry right for you?
Both holistic and traditional dentists are trained in the same dental methods. They attend the same dental schools. The real difference is that those who embrace a holistic strategy typically obtain advanced training to enhance their knowledge of alternative dentistry tactics. While a traditional dentist treats symptoms as they become problems a holistic dentist will explore underlying problems to help identify why it happened and how to prevent it from effecting your overall health.
To support your overall health, U Shine Dental looks at environmental, nutritional, physical and spiritual elements which can influence your life and may have a direct relationship with your oral health.
What are some of the benefits of holistic or natural dental care?
Holistic dentists aren’t your typical dentists. Holistic dentists focus on your whole health and its relationship with your oral health rather than using quick fixes. Holistic dentists promote health and wellness rather than the treatment of diseases. This leads to many benefits including:
Use of Safe, Healthy Materials
Many materials that have been used by your average dentists over the years are often bad for your health. Silver amalgam fillings for example, contain 50 percent mercury, one of the most toxic substances around. U Shine Dental uses alternative solutions that take your health and wellness into consideration.
Fluoride treatments are not healthy for your teeth either. While long believed to cure cavities, recent research shows that fluoride may actually cause health problems such as: Brain damage, arthritis, dementia, bone cancer, muscle disorders, and more. U Shine Dental only use materials that are free of toxins and adopt treatments that won’t harm your health.
Treating the Body as a Whole
Instead of just focusing on the smile, as a holistic dental practice U Shine also considers how everything done to the mouth will affect your overall body. Holistic dentists are well-versed in the oral systemic connection, understanding how the bacteria and problems within the mouth can carry through the bloodstream and into the rest of the body, increasing one’s risk for many medical conditions.
When caring for a diabetic patient for example, U Shine Dental will help that patient understand how he or she can manage blood sugar levels best by following best practices for oral hygiene care and a healthy program of diet and exercise.
Using natural or holistic techniques, U Shine Dental can help relieve disorders like chronic fatigue, sinusitis, heart burn, irritable bowel, mood disorders and poor concentration.
Holistic Dentists Rarely Use X-Rays
X-rays can be harmful to your health because of their high radiation exposure. That’s why holistic dentists only use digital X-rays which are approximately 50 percent lower in radiation than traditional dental X-ray machines. As radiation is still present even in the digital X-rays, U Shine Dental use these sparingly.
Does holistic dental care cost more?
The cost for holistic dental care is similar to average dentists for cleaning and office visits. But keep in mind that mercury is inexpensive so the composites used for fillings tend to cost more.
And as mentioned earlier, the cost of repairing a smile after poor oral health care will always remain the same. By maintaining one’s oral health, you can avoid the development of unwanted conditions such as cavities, periodontal disease, and even natural tooth loss, which in turn reduces visits and can actually reduce overall cost.
Is Holistic Dentistry covered by insurance?
Many of the dental treatments offered by U Shine Dental already incorporate holistic practices and are covered by your dental insurance. Full coverage depends on the procedure and your insurance. We’re happy to check your insurance coverage to see what you personally would be covered for.
What makes a dental practice holistic?
As holistic dentists we consider the biocompatibility of materials used for dental procedures such as crowns, fillings, and even fluoride treatments. Treatments are customized for you to eliminate adverse affects and include discussions surrounding home care, diet, and nutrition to prevent, diagnose, and treat accordingly.
U Shine Dental offers a personalized nutritional program designed to help provide your body with vital ingredients and nutrients to help alleviate some of the following dental issues:
