What is Holistic Dentistry?

November 21, 2012

You might have heard a lot about holistic dentistry in the past few years. You might have a lot of questions about it. What are the benefits? Why do some dentists boast about being Mercury-free for all these years? Is this kind of dentistry right for me, beyond the dental care I’ve had for years?

Holistic dentistry has been called a few different things over the years: alternative dentistry, biologic dentistry, biocompatible dentistry, and unconventional dentistry. But what exactly is involved with holistic dentistry? Essentially, it combines modern dental technology with healing methods from around the world. Your whole body is examined; not just your oral health. Much more thorough than general dentistry, there are so many aspects of it. At the Center for Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Hornstein, Dr. Gray and their qualified staff offer the best in holistic dentistry.
