A Holistic Approach by a Cosmetic Dentist

A cosmetic dentist is a unique practitioner that takes special care to give you not only the smile of your dreams but can also help create drastic transformation for those in need. Dr. Rose and the team at GoodHealth.dental firmly state that each patient’s care should include an “individual blueprint” for each person. While that may mean more traditional methods of treatment for you, it may also require the use of holistic dentistry. 

What is a Holistic Dentist?

A holistic dentist looks at a person as a whole, not just at their teeth. This requires evaluating the relationship between the mouth and the rest of the body. Once that step is complete, your team can begin creating a care plan that focuses on your overall quality of life, not just the health of your teeth.

For some cosmetic dentists, a holistic approach simply means using no mercury fillings or minimizing the use of other metals in restoration projects. While those are some aspects to a holistic, cosmetic dentistry approach, they don’t address the more significant issues, such as:

  • TMJ
  • Sleep apnea
  • Headaches
  • Periodontal disease

If you are in search of a cosmetic dentist that truly takes on a holistic approach, then you want to do your research and look into practitioners that have:

  • Sound neuromuscular principles
  • A respect for non-toxic dental materials
  • A respect for non-toxic treatment and preventatives for periodontal disease
  • Has a sound understanding of homeopathic techniques for treating a variety of symptoms for more significant issues, such as TMJ, headaches and sleep apnea

Combining Cosmetic and Holistic Dentistry

Combining these two types of dentistry isn’t as complicated as you may think. The entire concept revolves around creating a unique approach to each patient’s care plan, ensuring that all your concerns are met. This involves combining both modern technologies with holistic health principles.

Before any cosmetic work is done, your team will begin by taking a variety of images of your facial structure and teeth to evaluate where you are at currently. From there, your team will start discussing what it is you want to see as a result of your treatment and start creating a care plan that addresses each of your wants and needs.

With the use of technology and by considering your body as a whole (not just your teeth), your care team should factor in your age, gender, complexion, and more to help create a computer-enhanced preview of what your end result could be.

Depending on the procedures required to get your final result, your plan may include natural homeopathic procedures that can help lead to a quicker recovery with fewer chances of any side effects. Even better, holistic and homeopathic practices are often considered less costly than more traditional methods. The idea is to not rely solely on homeopathic techniques to fix everything but to use it in tandem with modern dentistry to reach your desired results.
