What is Holistic Dentistry?
As a Holistic Dentist I look at the connection between your oral health (the outer smile) and your overall health (your inner smile). If you suffer from Headaches, Migraines, ME/Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Sleep Apnoea or just Snore then the problem may lie in your mouth. You may have old leaking Mercury fillings, Gum disease or a bite out of balance, which can cause low-grade chronic inflammation in your body and can affect your overall health.
My motto is '' Where your Inner Smile meets your Outer Smile"©
Safe mercury removal is an essential part of your assessment but there are many other aspects of Holistic Dentistry that need to be taken into consideration. Your overall health and wellbeing is linked to your bite, jaw position, posture, breathing, gum disease, toxic exposure and past medical history.
A Holistic viewpoint also means that the order of treatment is considered as important as what the treatment is. A patient should be properly prepared before Mercury fillings are changed or a bite guard or orthodontic appliance is fitted. To provide as comprehensive service as possible I will often work in conjunction with other Holistically minded Practitioners such as Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Cranial Osteopaths, Osteopaths, Doctors, Naturopaths, and Nutritionalists.
