Collegeville periodontist Dr. David DiGiallorenzo explains how holistic approach benefits patients, promotes comfort and healing.
Our desire is to promote health and wellness to help you avoid the necessity of treating disease.
Empowering our patients to take a proactive instead of reactive approach to oral health means promoting preventive measures to keep your mouth healthy, rather than having to treat periodontal disease, cavities, tooth loss and other dental issues.
While we are here for you when you require dental treatment, wouldn’t you rather avoid those types of appointments when possible? We thought so. That is why our treatment approach considers your overall health, not just the health of your teeth. For years, we have worked to educate patients on the connection between oral and systemic health.
You will find when visiting our office that we routinely discuss the following with you:
- Proper nutrition for the prevention and reversal of degenerative dental disease
- How to avoid or eliminate toxins from dental materials
- Ways of treating and preventing problems with your bite that could create additional problems in your mouth and elsewhere
- Treating and preventing gum disease with LANAP rather than painful, invasive gum surgery
Our holistic approach to dentistry also means that we incorporate types of treatment into our practice that you likely haven’t seen at other dental practices. We have accredited professionals in acupuncture, laser bio stimulation, reflexology, massage, oral detoxification, nutrition and homeopathy for optimal outcomes. This is done with the goal of eliciting your body’s natural response to heal itself when possible.
Just as no two individuals are alike, no two treatment approaches are alike. Dr. DiGiallorenzo creates a unique approach to each patient’s unique dental health needs.
We are well aware that many patients have had unfavorable dental treatment experiences in the past, and this often makes people fearful of dental visits. This creates a vicious cycle where small dental problems become larger, more serious problems, which can result in the need for more extensive – and expensive – treatment.
We help patients address their fears through sedation and relaxation techniques. Dental visits don’t have to be unpleasant. We prove that each and every day.
If our treatment approach appeals to you or someone you know, feel free to contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation. We are eager to get you on the path to a lifetime of good oral health.
