Biological dentistry, also known as holistic or integrative dentistry, focuses on promoting overall health and wellness by considering the connections between the mouth and the rest of the body. This approach aims to use materials and techniques that are less harmful to both the patient and the environment. Some potential benefits of biological dentistry include:
Using non-toxic materials: Biological dentists may use alternative materials for fillings, such as composite resins, that do not contain harmful chemicals like mercury.
Minimizing radiation exposure: Biological dentists may use digital x-rays that emit less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Avoiding unnecessary procedures: Biological dentists may prioritize preventative care and avoid unnecessary procedures that could harm a patient's overall health.
Addressing underlying health issues: Biological dentists may work with other healthcare professionals to address underlying health issues that could be affecting a patient's oral health.
By taking a more holistic approach to dental care, biological dentistry can promote both individual and environmental health.
