What are Holistic Dental Treatments?

A holistic approach to health is one that focuses on the cause and effect of a health problem instead of only treating its symptoms. A holistic dentist focuses not just on your oral health but on your total body health that is so closely related to your teeth. Our holistic dentist in Los Angeles strives to create complete balance of the mind, body, and soul in each one of our patients.

While many oral health issues like tooth decay and periodontal disease must be treated in more traditional ways, the root cause of the issue can be addressed through holistic means. In order to bring your entire body into balance, including your smile, our Los Angeles biological dentist may recommend treatments that are not usually associated with dentistry. These can include treatments like massage therapy, aromatherapy, meditation, and an adjustment to your diet and nutrition. Also, instead of prescribing pharmaceutical medications, our dentist may suggest herbal supplements or even acupuncture to help patients deal with pain and discomfort.

If you, like so many other people in Los Angeles, are interested in leading the healthiest, most active lifestyle possible, consider a visit to our holistic dentist next time you are in need of a dental checkup.
