When it comes to maintaining good oral health, more people are interested in caring for their entire being, not just their teeth. After all, dental problems are often influenced by other lifestyle factors, including physical and emotional health. With this in mind, holistic dentistry has become more popular as people of all ages look for more natural alternatives to caring for their teeth and gums. Here’s what you should know about the benefits of holistic dentistry before scheduling your next appointment at Longpoint Dental in Franklin.

What is Holistic Dentistry? 

Holistic dentists are general dentists with additional training in holistic dental treatments and remedies. They offer natural remedies to oral health concerns rather than prescribing medications. Holistic dentistry recognizes that any disease affecting your body can impact oral health. Additionally, holistic dentistry uses materials that are biocompatible or natural.

    Who Should See A Holistic Dentist?

    Holistic dentistry may be a good option for you if you’re interested in using natural remedies to treat disease, you already incorporate alternative therapies into your healthcare routine, or you would like to take advantage of a whole-body approach to your oral health. 


      Mercury-Free Dentistry

      Mercury is a metal substance that is considered to be toxic. In the past, Mercury was often used to fill in cavities. While around half of all dental offices in America have removed Mercury from their practices altogether, others still use the material, despite its risks. The best way to prevent being exposed to the dangers of Mercury is to opt for another material if you need to have a cavity filled. Once Mercury has been placed in a tooth, it’s no longer considered very dangerous, but dislodging it could cause it to enter your bloodstream. For this reason, be sure to choose a trusted dentist specially trained to remove a Mercury filling safely and effectively.
