Why Holistic Dentistry?

Although we have long known the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene, more than ever before dentists like us are taking an organic, whole-body approach to improving dental health.

Clean teeth and fresh breath is one place to start. Clean, healthy teeth make it possible for you to speak and eat properly. Teeth and gums free of infection and bacteria (plaque) also help keep you from getting sick because that bacteria does not enter your body. Brushing and flossing at home and eating well and seeing us for your regular exams and hygiene all help keep tooth decay away as well as gingivitis and other unsavory conditions that may come about from not maintaining good oral health.

Do you stumble through the day groggy and foggy-headed? You may have sleep apnea, a common condition that disrupts restorative slumber and contributes to whole-body health problems. Our remedies sleep apnea with non-CPAP oral appliance therapy customized for your needs. Non-surgical TMJ treatment restores optimal jaw function and eliminates the headaches, facial pain, and other discomfort that often accompanies this disorder.

Plaque: Before and After

Before and after thorough cleaning and removal of hard plaque build up.

If you have a loved one with special needs, our team will treat that person with kindness, compassion, and a gentle touch to deliver the expert dental care needed for a healthy smile and a positive experience.
