Have you ever wondered how is holistic dentistry different from the traditional dentistry?
I will explain the difference between traditional and holistic dentistry.
Traditional dentistry means they focus more on fixing you existing dental problems.
For example: Say person ‘A’ is visiting traditional dentist for cavity, Dentist might provide a solution by clearing your cavity and filling it with dental cement.
Holistic dentistry is also known as Natural dentistry, Preventive dentistry, Alternative dentistry and Biological dentistry.
Holistic Dentistry focus on a patient’s overall health since its linked to your oral cavity.
Best and interesting part of Holistic practice in dentistry is they focus more on natural and preventive care.
Dentist would prioritize to find out the root cause to your problem, educate you to change your life style naturally with home remedies, food diet and sleep hygiene to prevent future dental issues which will lead to long lasting result.
For example: Let’s take the same person ‘A’ is visiting Holistic dentist for cavity, here, Dentist will take a detailed history and will rule out the ROOT CAUSE for cavity and provide tips and tricks to follow a healthy lifestyle, so you can prevent future cavities.
You will be very clear about what are the causes for your cavities and how to avoid that in future to prevent yourself from recurring or new cavities naturally.
Holistic dentistry is more beneficial because they promote health and wellness instead of the treatment of disease.
For example: Patient ‘A’ had a teeth grinding habit, when he visits Holistic dentist, Dentist will rule out the ROOT CAUSE then frames a holistic treatment plan customised for Patient ‘A’. Dentist might offer tips to Stress management, emotion mapping sessions, airway examinations, tongue strengthening exercises.
