What is Holistic Dentistry?
What is holistic dentistry to Dr Ron Ehrlich?
One of the most common questions we are asked is what is holistic dentistry?
Dentistry typically focuses on the oral cavity, i.e the teeth and the gums particularly. As holistic dentists of course we also focus on that area.
However as holistic dentists, we also recognize that there’s a person attached to those teeth and gums.
That person needs to breathe well and because of that the shape and size of the oral cavity is important as the gateway to how well you breathe and particularly how well you breathe whilst you’re asleep.
The patient also need to eat well so the way the teeth work is an important part of the digestive process.
The mouth is also the site of the two most common infections known to man woman or child that is gum disease and tooth decay. Due to tooth decay, we restore teeth and so we hope that the materials we use are biocompatible as well.
Due to the neurology, because the mouth is such a sensitive and important area, the connections between oral health and chronic musculoskeletal pain, chronic tension headaches and neck aches is another thing that we focus on.
Holistic dentistry incorporates all of those things as well as a continuous focus on oral cancer which is a growing and worrying problem in our society.
