Here at Lotus Dental, we understand the impact your teeth, jaw and oral health have on your general health and wellbeing. We ensure we take a holistic approach with each of our patients and including integrative dentistry into our practice.
What is Holistic Dentistry?
As the name suggests, Holistic Dentistry explores how the mouth is related to the rest of the body. During your visit one of our experienced clinicians will assess your physical and emotional health as well as your dental health.
Your oral health greatly impacts your general health therefore we focus on working with other health practitioners to achieve a whole-body approach to your health. Our mouth is home to a rich nerve and blood supply and can be a breeding ground for bacteria. It’s also the entry point for food and water and connects to the engine-room of the body. So, it’s important that we maintain our oral health to maintain our overall health.
How is Holistic Dentistry different?
Both modern and holistic dentistry look to uncover the connections between your mouth and your general well-being. How all the parts of the body interconnect can sometime be lost in specialisation, and this is where a holistic dentist’s focus lies.
Our friendly team combines the best in alternative and traditional practices to achieve whole body outcomes for our patients. Using biocompatible and non-toxic restorative materials, holistic dentistry minimises any adverse effects on the body and highlights the impact that dental toxins and infections may have on a persons’ overall health. Natural and nutritional supplements are also used to develop and maintain the foundations for healthy teeth and gums.
Holistic Dental Treatments
Our Lotus Dental team are trained in all the same aspects as traditional dentists, but draw upon alternative healthcare to provide a whole-body approach to your dental treatment. While we still utilise state-of-the-art technology and modern techniques, there are some key differences in our holistic dentistry approach, including:
- Treatments are focused around non-toxic materials (e.g. mercury amalgam is not used for fillings)
- Techniques that minimise harm to the mouth are preferred
- Natural and nutritional supplements are recommended to develop and maintain strong foundations for oral health
- Consultation with other health professionals (when needed)
