What is Holistic Dentistry?

Holistic Dentistry refers to dental care that considers the health of your whole body and not just that of your mouth. Holistic dentists at our Brisbane CBD practice assume a comprehensive role in the prevention and treatment of your dental problems. Instead of focusing just on your teeth and gums, we take into account your diet, life-style, stress levels and exercise routines as factors that directly or indirectly influence your dental health. Holistic Dentistry is also known by other names, such as biological dentistry or alternative dentistry.

At Healthy Dentistry, our holistic dentists provide a calm and restful environment so that you may sit back and relax while our friendly dentists and staff guide you along every step of your preventative care program or treatment procedure. True to our holistic philosophy, we look after every aspect of your experience with us.

Benefits of Holistic Dentistry

The term ‘holistic’ is derived form a Greek word that means ‘relating to the whole’. Holistic Dentistry represents the overarching role of oral care and its contributions toward the patient’s overall health and wellbeing, and vice versa.

The best way to appreciate the need for holistic dentistry is to examine its benefits and advantages over conventional dentistry.

Here are some of the many benefits you can expect from our highly experienced holistic team at Healthy Dentistry:

Comprehensive assessments

In our patient assessments, we consider all the different factors that potentially contribute to a patient’s dental woes including: imbalances in posture, improper jaw relationships, malocclusions, etc. Other highly plausible yet seldom detected causes of dental ailments are also taken into consideration: occupational hazards, diet issues, emotional stress, lack of sleep or exercise, toxic chemicals, etc. As can be seen, your oral health is a true reflection of your overall health, body, mind and soul.

Healthy Dentistry use highly detailed assessments leave nothing to chance, simply because you can never be too careful with health matters – even those that begin innocuously as a toothache. That’s why we use cutting edge diagnostic equipment like low-exposure x-rays and DIAGNOcam imaging. These technological tools not only raise the level of diagnostic capability, they dramatically improve the safety of our patients and staff.

Say ‘no’ to toxic materials

As you may already know, there is an increasing prevalence of toxic materials found in the food we consume, the things we use and even the very environment in which we live. More people are becoming aware of toxic substances like fluoride and mercury found in dental materials and products. They may appear insignificant at the onset, but prolonged use will accumulate harmful toxic materials in the body which may have dire consequences.

You’ll be glad to know that Healthy Dentistry is a mercury-free dental practice.

If you had fillings placed some time ago, chances are, they may be silver amalgam fillings that contain 50% mercury. Our practice offers the safe removal of amalgam fillings as a preventative measure – to reduce the patient’s long-term exposure to neurotoxic mercury vapour.

We utilise specialised tools such as the IQAir Dental Pro mercury air filter and Dental HD FlexVac mobile air cleaning system to minimise the toxic mercury vapours released from amalgams during the procedures. Read more about the safe dental materials we use here at Healthy Dentistry.

Metal-free materials and treatments

We offer metal-free components for all fillings, crowns, orthodontic and dental implant treatments.

Dental implants promise one of the most natural means of replacing your teeth. The implants are usually small posts made of titanium that are lodged into the jawbones that serve as the anchors for your prosthetic teeth.

At Healthy Dentistry, we offer the metal-free ceramic version of the implants that are safe and biocompatible. The metal-free component avoids the immunosuppression of titanium and the electrical battery effect of metals. To the patient, the implant supported prosthetic teeth looks, feels and functions like natural teeth.

Our orthodontic patients also benefit from our use of metal-free braces. Unlike traditional metal braces comprising wires and brackets, we use clear, plastic braces which are healthier and do not attract unwanted attention to your teeth or the fact that you are undergoing the teeth straightening procedure.

More than just aesthetic improvements, the removable clear braces give wearers the freedom to brush their teeth and eat as they normally would. Also, they do not trap food particles the way metal braces tend to – in the crevices between the wires and the teeth. – so the chance of decay is reduced.

Holistic Dentistry FAQs

  • What is Healthy Dentistry?

    What makes us different from other dentists is we work together with your health practitioner and look at the reasons why you have dental issues and design your dental care to address those issues. This ultimately improves both your dental health and also your overall health.

  • How is Health Dentistry different?

    We are dramatically different from traditional, general dentists. Traditional dentistry just fixes what’s broken without regard to what caused your dental issues in the first place. We are different to you average dentist. You have most likely experienced the typical disease-care model of “what can we do to you in as little time as possible.” Fortunately at Healthy Dentistry things are different. Our philosophy is built around using a natural and more holistic approach, one which is in more harmony with how your body works, to achieve a better outcome. For instance, we don’t automatically prescribe antibiotics and pain medication unless you really need them. Doing it this way keeps your body stronger, you heal faster with less pain, achieving better results.

  • Why choose Healthy Dentistry?

    Our patients come from all over Queensland, other states and even overseas to benefit from our unique approach to holistic dentistry because we are a full-service destination holistic dental facility.

    Our patients choose us because our practice aligns with their personal health and lifestyle philosophy. For the same reason that you choose healthy food, you should also choose a holistic dentist. If you’ve done your research on silver fillings or root canals you know that these procedures are sometimes thought of as controversial and thought by some to potentially lead to short term and long term health problems. Many times we are asked to undo what has been done by traditional dentists because our patients want to reclaim their health which may have been compromised by dental choices made in the past.

    Most importantly we work together with you to determine how your mouth got into trouble in the first place. It may be a stressful or uneven bite. It may be that inflammation and painless low level chronic infection of the soft tissues has not been adequately treated in the past. We also place heavy emphasis on your tooth structure and shapes and how this all fits together, reducing cracked and broken teeth, muscular tension and stress in the head and neck area. The result is beautiful teeth you will love, combined with a great smile.

  • Holistic Dentistry Goes Beyond Ordinary Dentistry.

    Great dentistry employs both science and art. Just as the artist preparing to paint a masterpiece approaches each canvas with a new set of eyes, we take into account your unique situation as we approach your dental health. At healthy dentistry we bring together all of the sciences and latest technologies with an amazing facility and staff to create beautiful teeth in perfect balance and whole body health. The result for our patients is the dental health they have always wanted and it lasts a long time.
