What Holistic Dentistry Means To Us
You hear a lot of words used in marketing products and services. That can lead to confusion at times for patients. That’s why we want to take a moment to explain why we consider ourselves a holistic dental office.
Your mouth is not separate from your body. It is a part of it, and you could argue that it plays an integral part in your overall health. Your mouth is where digestion begins when you bite and chew food to break it down into smaller pieces. If your mouth is unhealthy, you may not be able to eat the variety of foods recommended for good nutrition.
With this in mind, Dr. David Miller and the rest of our team at Advanced Dental Concepts considers the effects of dental care on your overall health. That includes the emotional and mental health aspects of coming to a dentist office.
To experience our holistic dentistry firsthand, call 916-786-4865 to make an appointment.
How We Approach Dental Care
There are a number of ways that the health of one part of your body can affect you in other ways. Having a sprained ankle can change how you walk, which can lead to knee or back pains. Likewise, your oral health can help or hurt your overall health. As an example, research has shown that patients with gum disease are at a higher risk of heart problems, too.
To help you be as healthy as possible, we approach your oral care with your total health in mind.
It’s why we use digital X-rays. These use a fraction of the radiation that film X-rays do, making them safer for you, your family, and our team.
If you have old amalgam fillings and have concerns about mercury, we can replace them with our safe and natural-looking dental fillings. You also have the option of metal-free, latex-free, and fluoride-free treatments at our Roseville, CA office.
We also recognize that dental care can be a source of anxiety for many people. It’s why we have implemented comfort options and advanced technology at our practice.
Many people like that we have private operatories for our patients. We provide blankets and pillows to help you stay cozy, too, and we use essential oils to create a calm atmosphere.
At the same time, we know that some people’s fear of the dentist is stronger. If you are one of them, we have dental sedation as well. With three options, we have ways to help you get through a routine cleaning or a complex procedure, such as full-mouth reconstruction.
Go Beyond The Basics
As we have said, we care about you, not just your oral health. It’s why we offer services that you might not expect at a dental practice.
Our sleep apnea treatment can help you snore less, so you and your loved ones can get a good night’s rest. When left untreated, sleep apnea has been shown to raise the risk of many health issues. These include cardiovascular disease, strokes, and complications of diabetes.
Our TMJ treatment can help prevent teeth grinding. It also can prevent morning headaches, jaw pain, and other problems.
