The standard practice of dentistry is “one-size fits all.” A filling is a filling and a dental implant is a dental implant, right? Not exactly. What works for one patient may not work for you, and some treatments may not fall in line with your smile goals. Homeopathic care is about discovering the right treatment that aligns with your oral health goals, and more importantly, your body.
Being a homeopathic dental practice, that means that we study how every treatment affects your body. There is no one-size fits all at our practice.
What Treatments Fit With Your Body?
Being a dental implant and gum therapy dental practice, we put a heavy focus on restoring the teeth and gums. Dr. DiGiallorenzo is an expert in placing dental implants and restoring gums. In fact, he has treated patients from all 50 states, and he offers a variety of dental implant services for patients. The most common form of dental implant is made from titanium. We use titanium because it naturally merges with the jawbone. But not everyone wants metal implants — and some people are intolerant of certain metals like titanium — which is why we provide a different option.
Zirconia dental implants are biocompatible and completely free of metal. Periodontists and dentists across the world are turning to zirconia dental implants because they are less likely to develop plaque or tartar buildup. In addition to using zirconia dental implants, Dr. DiGiallorenzo uses the patient’s stem cells to increase the healing process. Dr. DiGiallorenzo enjoys placing these metal-free implants for patients searching for a holistic option.
How is Your Body’s Energy
Our offices also include a wellness center with massage therapists and an acupuncture specialist, Amanda Ruth, who helps patients discover the natural flow of energy in their body. Acupuncture is a system that uses needles on different areas of the body. The needles help adjust the flow of energy in the body. Acupuncture is a tool that relates to dentists because it can help patients deal with stress, lose weight, address eating disorders and to stop smoking. Our patients can also benefit from scheduling an appointment with our massage therapists. While helping to relieve stress and relaxation, patients with TMJ or headaches can benefit from cranial-sacral therapy. This massage therapy focused on areas of the facial, head, neck, and shoulders where patients often carry tension.
Ask Us About What’s Good for Your Mouth and Body
What you eat and put in your mouth has a direct effect on your oral and overall health. That’s a fact, but not every dental patient is aware of what food, drinks, and habits can kill their smile. Instead of just fixing problems when they arise, we want to teach you about great prevention methods.
We will work with you one-on-one to teach you about the dangers of sugar, what grains and vegetables to migrate to, and how calcium-rich foods can help prevent tooth decay.
Good dentistry is about preserving your mouth but also also about giving you a healthier life. Take time out of your schedule to give us a call! Our Collegeville dental office can be reached at 610-228-4366, or you can reach or Williamsport dental office at 570-505-6908.
