Holistic Dentistry Q&A

What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry is a unique approach to oral health care that considers the health of your entire being, not just the health of your mouth. The team at LA Dentists Group works together to examine the impacts that any oral health issues have on the rest of your body. 

Ongoing research shows concerning links between your overall health and your oral health. Gum disease, for example, increases your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Not only that, but some of the more traditional dental treatments themselves have health risks of their own. 

LA Dentists Group primarily offers minimally invasive treatments and uses the safest possible techniques with every patient. 

What are the benefits of holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry offers unique benefits compared with conventional dentistry. At LA Dentists Group, the team prioritizes holistic dental care that is:

  • Fluoride-free
  • Mercury-free
  • Noninvasive
  • Nontoxic
  • Biocompatible

They place a heavy emphasis on providing preventive care that can help you avoid dental complications like cavities and gum disease in the first place. The more you learn about the connection between your oral health and overall health, the better your dental outcome can be. 

What should I expect from holistic dentistry?

The team at LA Dentists Group teaches you the best practices for brushing and flossing at home. They also encourage you to come in for holistic cleanings and comprehensive oral examinations that help them identify mouth diseases in their earliest stages. 

Advanced dental treatments remain available to you if you opt for holistic dental care. You can get the safe treatments you need when you need them, such as:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Ultrasonic scaling and root planing
  • Sleep apnea treatments
  • Porcelain crowns, bridges, and veneers
  • Orthodontics

The team at LA Dentists Group explores your oral and overall health with an examination and possible additional tests, like a blood sugar reading or X-ray imaging if it’s necessary. 

Additionally, your dentist might have recommendations that go beyond what you would normally expect from dentistry. Holistic options include herbal supplements, homeopathy, and nutritional recommendations to keep your teeth healthy.
