When you think of “natural” or “holistic” treatments, does dentistry come to mind? Thanks to the advancements made in dental techniques — combined with the natural treatments preferred by patients — holistic dentistry has become increasingly well-known and in demand. It is now an everyday part of modern patient care.
About Holistic Dental Alternatives and Holistic Dental Options
Here are a few examples of when your dentist might recommend a holistic alternative to traditional types of treatment:
- Cosmetic white fillings (composite) vs. Mercury (amalgam) restorations
- Metal-free dental implants (Ceramic/Zirconia) vs. A conventional bridge or partial denture (porcelain fused to metal)
- Clear alignment trays vs. Metal braces and orthodontics
- Ceramic/Zirconia dental crowns vs. Metal or metal-based restorations
What are the Best Holistic Dental Alternatives to Traditional Treatments?
For a completely holistic approach to dental care, it’s important to choose a dentist who has the same goals in mind as yourself. He or she will take extra steps to ensure your treatment plan only involves safe and minimally-invasive options that benefit both your oral health as well as your quality of life. Believe it or not, holistic dentistry doesn’t have to cost you extra!
Holistic Dentistry and Tooth Replacement
The best — and most holistic way — to replace your missing teeth is with dental implants. Metal free implants like those made of ceramic are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they’re also extremely safe for your body. As a bio-compatible restoration, your body will accept the implant almost as if it were a real tooth.
Porcelain and ceramic implants “integrate” into the mouth as your body triggers new bone around the artificial tooth root. This unique process fuses the implant into its socket, so that it can stay for the rest of your life. Compared to other types of tooth replacement, implants offer the most cost-effective solution.
