5 Reasons Why Holistic Dentistry is Becoming More Popular

Are you looking for dental care that incorporates your overall well-being? Here are 5 key ways holistic dentistry can promote and benefit your total health. 


Oral health is key to your overall well-being at every stage of your life. A healthy mouth not only enables adequate nutrition of the body, but it also promotes your self-esteem and quality of life.  

But just as good oral health can boost your well-being, poor dental health will negatively impact your general health and may even increase your risk of:  

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Infertility
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
     

Holistic Dentists Understand The Connection Between Your Mouth and Body 

Holistic dentists understand this critical connection and believe that your oral health is part of the bigger picture: that of total body wellness.

5 Reasons Why Holistic Dentistry is Gaining Popularity 

For many years in the dental profession, it was assumed that your oral health had only a tangible effect on your overall well-being. However, holistic dentistry takes a different approach and holistic dentists work towards promoting a patient’s total health and wellness, instead of just disease treatment. 

Here are 5 reasons why holistic dentistry is becoming so popular: 

  1. Focus on the whole body and root cause: Holistic dentistry looks beyond symptoms to find the root causes for dental issues, while expanding methods of preventive care. It involves a deeper look at a patient, offering them numerous benefits when considering diet and lifestyle, and how it all connects with oral health.  

  1. The use of minimally-invasive treatments: A big focus of holistic dentists is helping patients avoid unnecessary, drawn-out, and painful procedures that can damage your overall well-being. But that doesn’t mean sacrificing high-tech treatments for disease! Your holistic dentist will just be able to recommend alternative and safer treatments if suitable, such as ozone therapy.

  2. It can be perfectly tailored to your needs. In holistic dentistry, there is no one approach to solve your dental problems. You won’t get a standard answer like the one you may find in a traditional clinic. Instead, you will get a treatment that will be tailor-made to your situation. 

  3. It can lower your dental costs. Holistic dentists help you improve your overall and oral health, which means that there is less need to visit both your doctor and dentist, except for your regular check-ups. If you follow the suggestions of your holistic dentist, such as making certain lifestyle changes, you could be able to prevent shelling out money for expensive treatments down the road. 

  4. The use of non-toxic materials. Holistic dentistry focuses on the use of non-toxic materials that are fully compatible with the body. For example, while a traditional approach to dentistry uses mercury fillings or crowns that have been shown to be related to a wide range of health problems, a holistic dentist will favour dental appliances made from more natural substances.
