Wellness-Focused Dentistry

Well-focused dentistry prioritizes the body's overall wellness by integrating traditional dental care with natural therapies and advanced diagnostics to ensure treatments support the body's natural healing processes and long-term well-being.

Dentistry with Your Whole Body in Mind

Wellness-focused dentistry focuses on the wellness of the whole body. Over the last few years, the relationship between oral health and total body health has become more widely known and accepted. For example, gum disease has been linked to several different health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, to name just a few. Bacteria in the mouth can travel through the system and cause infection in other body parts.

We work with our patients to achieve better health and wellness because we have the knowledge and tools to identify diseases early and educate and guide them to make the best decisions. The results for patients can be increased vitality, greater longevity, and higher quality of life.

  • What is wellness-focused dentistry and how does it differ from traditional dentistry?

    Wellness-focused considers the patient’s entire physical and emotional well-being. Unlike traditional dentistry, which focuses solely on oral health, wellness-focused dentistry uses biocompatible materials, avoids toxic restorative materials like mercury, and employs non-invasive procedures harmonious with the body’s natural health.

  • What types of treatments are offered in wellness-focused dentistry?

    Wellness-focused dentistry offers a range of treatments that include using safe, non-toxic materials for dental restorations, the removal of amalgam fillings, ozone therapy for infections, and laser treatments for gum disease. It also often incorporates nutritional counseling, herbal medicines, and specific techniques to support overall health and healing.

  • Are wellness-focused dental treatments safe and scientifically supported?

    Yes, wellness-focused dental treatments are safe and use FDA-approved materials compatible with the body. Many practices used in wellness-focused dentistry, such as using ozone for sterilization and employing laser technology for gum treatments, are supported by scientific research. However, as with any medical or dental treatment, consulting with a healthcare provider is important to understand the best and most effective treatment options for your specific health needs.
