Holistic is more than a catch phrase of the millennium. It is a core philosophy of healthcare that recognizes the intimate connection of each part of the body, and how those relationships affect wellness. Historically, the western world has treated the mouth as a separate entity from the rest of the body. Fortunately, that concept is shifting today. As well-informed consumers gain a clearer understanding of the mouth-body connection, they want the health benefits of holistic dentistry, for themselves and the ones they love. If you are searching for "holistic family dentistry near me" in Georgia, you have come to the right dentist – Dr. Don Jones of Social Circle Dental.
Health benefits of holistic dental care
• Everything that goes into your mouth affects your body.
• Whatever is happening in your body leaves evidence in your mouth.
Holistic dentistry is that simple and that complex. At the core of holistic dentistry is a commitment to use the safest instruments, dental materials, and techniques available to avoid adverse impact on the mouth and body. For example, Dr. Jones does not place amalgam fillings, which contain toxic mercury. He uses composite resin filling materials for cavity repairs that blend naturally with the smile, and do not expose the brain or body to the potential health hazards of mercury. This is especially important for children, who are both more cavity-prone, and more susceptible to mercury poisoning.
If a patient wishes to have amalgam fillings removed, Dr. Jones does so utilizing strict guidelines from the IAOMT. These extra steps protect the patient and dental staff from particulate matter containing mercury, and from toxic vapor.
