What Is Holistic Dentistry?
At Metropolitan Dental Care in Midtown, we are proud to provide holistic dentistry. Holistic dentistry takes a “big picture” approach to oral health, recognizing that oral health is essential to overall health. In other words, it’s impossible to separate the health of your teeth, and the soft tissues of the mouth from the rest of the body.
Sometimes also referred to as integrative dentistry, our holistic approach to dentistry means that we view oral health conditions in the context of the entire body. By way of example, we look for root causes for chronic conditions such as gum disease. We avoid all potentially dangerous materials and toxins, we aim to help our patients mitigate inflammation, improve imbalances, and advocate for a nutrition-based approach to oral and overall health.
