Learn What A Holistic Dentistry Approach Entails
You may be wondering, like many patients we’ve seen, what we mean by “holistic dentistry.” The term “holistic” can have a pretty negative connotation when it is applied to certain medical fields. It may even conjure images of a modern, hippie version of a snake oil salesperson of the past.
Holistic dentistry is all about acknowledging that your body is a system of interconnected parts. There are several examples we could give that you take for granted and don’t think of holistic at all.
For instance, it goes without saying that if you break a bone the soft tissue surrounding that bone will become inflamed, bruised, and swollen. Likewise, it’s not exactly mind-bending news that if someone damages their spine bad enough they could lose motor function throughout their entire body.
It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to you to learn that your oral and overall health are deeply intertwined, then. For example, did you know that if you have heart disease, some of the plaque that we remove from your teeth during your routine dental cleanings is likely caused by that heart disease? Understanding these connections is what holistic dentistry is all about.
If you assume all dental offices are basically the same, you may also be curious why we have mentioned that our Roseville, CA dentist office is non-toxic. There are a few different standards that we maintain that other dentists don’t because our practice is completely:
- Latex-free: we do not use latex gloves when working on your smile because a lot of people are allergic to this material
- Metal-free: we exclusively use tooth-colored materials that are free of toxic metals like mercury when providing dental crowns and other restorative treatments
- Fluoride-free: we do not provide fluoride treatments as many dentists do because this mineral can be toxic in large enough doses
It’s also important that you understand that our holistic dentistry commitment does not translate into a new age, anti-technology approach. We still use modern science and cutting-edge techniques and technologies. Here are some of the state-of-the-art machines we have invested in:
- A CEREC milling machine that can create custom dental crowns in a single visit
- Oral cancer screening devices that detect signs of disease that would go overlooked by the naked eye
- DIAGNOdent cavity detection systems that will catch early signs of decay that might otherwise go unnoticed
- PerioLase soft tissue lasers to treat periodontal issues, like gum disease
- The revolutionary K7 system, that helps to diagnose TMJ disorder and other jaw-related issues
Dr. Miller also has the know-how to use these machines. He has completed more than 5,400 hours of continuing education on top of his dental degree and has gained extensive experience providing dental care over the years.
We also want our patients to know that you are in control. If you would like us to pause what we are doing for any reason during a treatment, simply raise your left hand to get our attention.
