Why Is A Comprehensive “Holistic” Approach To Dental Care Important?
The best way to be free of dental problems is to take a “holistic” approach that not only gets to the root of the problems, but also finds the best solutions and materials to prevent the problems from occurring again. Quick fixes are only a bandage that does not address why the problems occurred in the first place.
What Needs To Be Considered For A Comprehensive “Holistic” Approach?
It is important to know where you have been, where you are now, and an honest assessment about where you want to go and what you are willing to do about your dental health. Once we know this, it becomes easy to recommend the appropriate treatment. The better you know where you want to go, the easier it is for us to help you get there. This is why our mission is “To help patients become healthier.”
What Is Dental Health?
We realize that dental health is not a single end point but a spectrum. Where you are now may be different at different times in your life, but it can change. You can always be healthier.
What Are the Major Causes of Dental Problems?
Of the three primary reasons why you might lose your teeth â€“ tooth decay, gum disease, and bite problems â€“ the first two are caused by bacteria that we call dental plaque. There are many ways of controlling plaque, but what works best for you can be determined with the help of your dentist. Bite problems are caused by abnormal physical stress on the teeth. A plan that incorporates plaque and stress control will ensure keeping your teeth for a lifetime.
What Dental Materials Are Considered Safe?
Although all accepted dental materials have been researched and tested to be generally safe, we realize that what might be right for one person may not be right for another. Given the risks, benefits, and alternatives, we feel that a person is able to choose the best materials for themselves.
