A holistic dentist takes into account both your oral health and overall well-being when it comes to treating any oral concerns.
A holistic dentist, also called an alternative dentist, treats any oral health concerns in conjunction with the health of the overall physical body. This great alternative service is proudly available through Sunshine Smiles Dental at Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast
Common practices of holistic dentistry include the strong opposition to the use of amalgam fillings which contain mercury and potentially harmful materials, non-surgical methods to prevent and treat gum disease, and non-invasive treatment of the root canal.
What occurs within the mouth does have a significant impact on the rest of the body, which is why we take a holistic approach to dental care. As each body part is linked, it is important to heal one area of the body, to maintain overall health and well-being in every area.
