Holistic Dentistry
Columbia, MD

Understanding holistic dentistry is as simple as understanding holistic healthcare in itself. The fact is, your mouth is not a separate unit from the rest of your body, and the fact remains that your oral health certainly does play a role in your overall wellness. We here at Crafton Dental believe in holistic dentistry for our patients as a means of treating you as a complete person, not just simply a set of teeth and gums.

What is Holistic Dentistry?

A healthy Holistic Dentistry patient smiling at Crafton Dental in Columbia MD.Holistic medicine believes that your body is a comprehensive unit, not just the sum of its parts. That means that when you come to our office complaining of tooth pain, we will regard you as a person and not just an infected tooth or a bleeding gum. You are more than just an infected tooth or diseased gums when you come to our office. While some people may be cautious about holistic dentistry, we are strongly supported by evidence-based science.

The fact is, your oral health does play a major role in your general wellness, and how you treat your body does show up in your mouth. For instance, if you eat many sweets, there is a good chance that you will gain weight – and you will get tooth decay! Your whole self is affected by this. Furthermore, it is already a fact that our oral health directly impacts your general health. Take, for instance, gum disease.
•  Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease does not just impact your mouth.
•  Of course, it may start with receding gums, bleeding, tenderness, and tooth loss.
•  Over time, however, if your gum disease remains untreated, it can lead to a host of complications in the rest of your body.
•  Gum disease has been demonstrated to cause heart attack, diabetes, stroke, cancer, and death.

How Does Holistic Dentistry Benefit You?

As holistic dentists, we have the same advanced skill and training as other dental professionals. What sets us apart is our approach to your care. We want to ensure your good health, which is why we practice holistic (or “biological”) dentistry. For instance, we understand instinctively that what we place in your mouth may also affect the rest of your body, as well. When we practice holistic dentistry with you, we take great measures to ensure that all of our products are safe not only for you but for the environment.

While some dental clinics may still use metal (“amalgam”) fillings with mercury in them, we do not use these products in our office. The safety of those products is questionable, and our goal is to improve your health, not impair it. As our patient, we will only offer you medical procedures and products that will make you a happier, healthier person overall.

Questions About Holistic Dentistry?

Taking care of your oral health is vital to make sure that you remain healthy overall.
