To improve oral structure and functionality, Dr. Yani offers a comprehensive range of Holistic dentistry services at our Fort Lauderdale, FL office.
Holistic dentistry is an alternative approach to dentistry that believes your oral health is absolutely interconnected to your overall health. It focuses on using biocompatible (non-toxic) restorative materials, eliminating infections, and promoting optimal teeth/jaw/head/neck structural relationships. Because no dentist can “do it all,” they will often work with a wide variety of healthcare professionals to promote integrated, complementary care. The focus of a proper Holistic Dentist is to identify areas of oral disease and structural dysfunction that may be negatively impacting the health and well-being of the patient. As a rule, they will then use the least invasive, least traumatic, and least toxic means of diagnosis and treatment. Genuine holistic care supports the body’s natural abilities of self-healing and regeneration.
Below is the order of philosophies of Holistic Dentists from most to least common:
It is increasingly popular for dentists to call themselves holistic, mercury-free, biological, or biological dentists simply because they no longer use mercury/silver fillings. Make sure any dentist you are considering has received advanced training in the proper handling of mercury/silver fillings that are already in your mouth – as prescribed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT-www.iaomt.org). According to the IAOMT, Mercury /Amalgam / Silver Fillings removal without following these guidelines may be hazardous to your health as well as the health of the dental practice team. Here at GreenEwe Dental, our team follows all the guidelines.
