Holistic Dentistry

What is Holistic Dentistry?

Here at Lakeside Dental Spa, we take a holistic approach to dentistry as we believe this is the best and most appropriate way to help our patients maintain good oral and general health. Holistic dentistry is slightly different from general dentistry. General dentistry aims to treat the problem whilst holistic dentistry will treat the problem as well as looking at the underlying cause. It is a concept that focuses on understanding the impact of infection on the mouth and on the entire body. When we treat a dental problem, we will use the very best bio-compatible, non-toxic materials and techniques combined with the very latest traditional general dentistry.

Is Holistic Dentistry More Expensive?

A holistic approach to dentistry may mean we spend longer with you as we want to gain a complete picture of your overall health as this can affect your dental health; anything that occurs in your mouth can affect your body. However, the cost of dental treatments is unlikely to be any higher.

How Can Nutrition Affect Dental Health?

Good nutrition is vital for good dental health as certain foods are bad for teeth while others help to build healthy teeth and gums and enable your body to fight infection more effectively. We can talk to you about your diet and if necessary can help you make improvements that will positively impact your dental health.
