The number one concern of a biological dentist is the well-being of each patient. A good biological dentist will see health as a state of vigor, of wholeness, not just the absence of illness.
Although a dentist can neither diagnose nor treat medical conditions, it is essential that you find a dentist who is aware of the relationship between dental health and your health in general and who can be an effective part of your team of health care providers.
That’s why it is so important to seek out a competent biological dentist.
Maximizing Oral Health and Wellness
To maximize oral health and overall health issues – such as nutritional support, detoxification, the structural alignment of the jaw and TMJ prevention – diet and lifestyle changes may be addressed.
There is heavy emphasis on educating patients about the best preventative care methods available.
Biological dentists are also at the forefront of developing new equipment and techniques to improve patient comfort and safety during corrective and restorative treatments, including new bio-compatible and longer lasting dental materials.
A Biological or Holistic dentist will address long-term health issues by recommending the removal of toxic dental materials such as mercury amalgam fillings and by working to eliminate chronic infections in the mouth.
These chronic infections can include cavitations in the jaw-bone and infections from prior root canal procedures.
When dealing with any oral health need, a good biological or holistic dentist will choose the least invasive and most effective treatment available, working to avoid any unnecessary structural changes in the mouth that could cause future complications.
Linking Oral Health to Illness and Longevity
Medical science is beginning to learn that, while the eyes may be the windows to the soul, your mouth is truly the doorway to the health of your body.
Add Years to Your Life or Lose Them
How would you like to add thirty healthy years to your life?
How about increasing your energy level and decreasing your stress or enhancing your pleasure?
Research is showing us that these things are now possible by taking better care of your oral health. Unfortunately, research is also showing us that you may be risking your health and developing serious illnesses if you are not taking good care of your teeth and gums.
Each year, the medical research community continues to collect evidence of the deadly effects of improper and incomplete care for your teeth and gums.
In the field of biological dentistry, also called health-centered or holistic dentistry, there are thousands of reports, and solid research, of physical and emotional ailments being relieved through proper treatment.
It may be surprising to discover how many ailments can be relieved, in whole or in part, through biological dentistry – and that these ailments seem totally unrelated to the mouth!
Illnesses Impacted by Poor Oral Health and Toxic Materials
- Heart Disease
- Inability to think clearly
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic sinus infection
- Muscle atrophy
- Light sensitivity
- Chronic muscle pain
- Migraine headaches
- Chemical sensitivities
- Hair loss
- Weakned immune system
The list goes on and on…
Oral Health and Disease
After more than 40 years of research and observation, Dr. Reinhard (a well-known German physician) reported that almost 80% of all illness are related to problems in the mouth.
Other researchers have established conclusive links between poor oral health, toxic dental materials and diseases such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease and more.
You see, the human body is a complex network of interrelated systems. Poor health in any one of these systems will be reflected throughout the whole network of systems.
So, while it may not be literally true that illness in the mouth will always cause illness in other parts of the body, the mouth, gums and the teeth will contribute to and reflect the health of your entire body.
