More and more people are recognizing the benefits of a holistic approach to dental health. Here in Epping NH, Brentwood Dental Designs is a leading holistic dental practice.
Traditional dentistry views the mouth as something that is apart from the rest of the body. Holistic dentistry, on the other hand, recognizes the fact that the mouth is one part of an overall system, and that dental health and general health are intertwined.
If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the mouth is a window into your body’s health. Here’s just one example: the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth can be a sign of plaque and tatar builduip in the arteries. For another, the same bacteria associated with gum disease has been found in the hearts of people with heart disease. It’s even been found in cancer cells in people with pancreatic cancer.
As a holistic dental practice we discourage the use fluoride. Maybe you have always thought fluoride is important. It is true that the American Dental Association recommends fluoridated toothpaste, and even using it on babies when their teeth begin coming in.
But fluoride is a known neurotoxin, and there are alternative products and treatments that can strengthen teeth. Be sure to ask us.
At Brentwood Dental Designs in Epping NH, our holistic dentistry is an extension of a healthy lifestyle that includes natural foods and consumer goods. Patients from Brentwood, Exeter, and Rye come to us for complete general dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
