Here are six hallmarks of Holistic Dentistry, all of which are incorporated into Dr. White’s patient-care at the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Nashville:
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 1:Optimal dental health and oral hygiene are signs of great health overall.
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 2:Patient lifestyle choices outside of the dentist’s chair, which include eating well and not smoking, go a long way toward correcting dental and medical health issues. Patients also must be involved in their customized dental health plan. So the doctor and his team at Nashville’s Center for Advanced Dentistry strive to provide patients with as much information and education as possible.
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 3:Treatments take into consideration how any procedure will affect the patient’s overall systemic health, not just their mouth or smile.
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 4:In order to promote a patient’s optimal systemic health, holistic dentists only suggest the most necessary treatments, and always seek out treatments that are as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 5:We will make use of the latest in diagnostic technology to pinpoint the root cause of your dental health problem and then treat that issue with your medical health, not just your dental health, in mind.
Holistic Dentistry Hallmark No. 6:Whenever possible, holistic dentists make use of natural products and treatments including mercury-free fillings.
Do You Want to Remove Metal Amalgam?
As we come to understand the potential hazards of mercury in metal amalgam fillings, many people want to remove fillings they received in the past. Mercury is a highly toxic mineral. This was not known when dentists started placing amalgam fillings. Dentists also didn’t know that mercury from fillings doesn’t stay in the fillings. You can inhale mercury fumes as they evaporate. Mercury also seeps into your tooth. The world is in the process of banning mercury fillings, and many people report feeling better after their fillings are removed.
Metal amalgam fillings are not very attractive. They can also damage your teeth. We can remove your metal amalgam fillings and replace them with more attractive white fillings that protect your teeth.
A Healthy Bite Can Relieve Pain
Many people have TMJ symptoms but don’t realize the true cause. If you have headaches, neck pain, vertigo, or tinnitus–with or without jaw pain and jaw sounds–TMJ may be the cause.
If current treatments aren’t helping your headaches and other symptoms, maybe it’s time to learn whether neuromuscular dentistry can help.
