Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) – Holistic Dentistry
What is holistic dentistry?
Holistic dentistry is the belief that your oral cavity is connected to the rest of your body’s general health. It’s focus is on using toxic-free restorative materials, eliminating sources of intraoral infections, and promoting optimal teeth and jaw structural relationships.
How do we treat dental cavities?
Our use of BPA-free composite dental fillings along with the lack of use of silver fillings is what makes our private office different from many other offices in and around the greater Houston area.
With the use of Hazmat suits, and dual valve gas masks, we also help our patients remove old silver fillings that could end up harming their overall health. We know different people have different beliefs which is why Dr. Jasmine and her team have decided to only use holistic approaches for her patients.
Does Best Dental Perform Root Canals As Part Of Their Holistic Approach?
If one of our patients requests a root canal, we do provide that service for them. We also understand that their are different stances where a lot of biological dentists and patients taking a holistic approach to dentistry absolutely avoid them at all costs.
Due to internal anatomy of teeth, it is impossible for modern dentistry to completely sterilize a tooth, and we do inform our patients of this if they do decide on getting root canal therapy on one or more of their teeth.
The studies that were held in the 1990s did show some negative implications of root canal treatment, but many dentists to this day consider them to be perfectly safe. Below are some articles to read and inform yourself if root canal therapy is something that you want performed on you or your family members. We completely understand if its not a procedure you want to move forward with.
