What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry is sometimes also called biological dentistry – and it’s the basis of Dr. Paige Woods’ unique approach to dental health. This type of dentistry considers a person’s total physical and emotional state, not just their mouths and teeth. As with other holistic dentists, Dr. Woods sometimes uses natural therapies alongside conventional ones in the process of diagnosing, preventing and treating oral health issues.
Following from the philosophy that patients are more than just teeth and gums, biological dentistry works to improve the health of the whole person through better dental and oral health. When health is addressed as a whole, it becomes impossible to think of the mouth in isolation. Using this approach, handsome and durable restorations and cosmetic work are possible that don’t do any harm. Unlike traditional dentistry, there are no toxic materials like mercury used in the dental practice of Dr. Paige Woods.
In fact, it’s just the opposite. Techniques are used that make people feel better rather than worse. This includes aromatherapy and acupressure as well as other alternative wellness procedures, making the practice’s approach biocompatible dentistry that is also anxiety-free.
