Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is no small feat. That’s because it can’t be accomplished with brushing and flossing alone.
It requires a combination of healthy practices and quality professional care.
At the LANAP & Implant Center, we can help you on both fronts with our holistic approach to your best oral and overall health.
Today, we’re talking about how the integration of holistic strategies with modern dental treatments at the hands of our specialists benefit more than just your smile!
Holistic Dentistry Explained
Holistic dentistry is a different kind of care.
It’s when a dental professional doesn’t just treat problems with your teeth and gums, but rather, puts your oral health into a larger context.
When evaluating your dental needs, a holistic professional takes your entire being into account when choosing treatment options that will work for you. It’s an integrated approach to dental care that coordinates a myriad of medical and homeopathic solutions that will encourage your body’s own healing mechanisms to maximize healthy outcomes.
The Benefits Of Holistic Dentistry
Imagine that you’re at a dental appointment for a routine cleaning and exam, and your dentist discovers you’re suffering from the early stages of gum disease.
Now, what most dentists would do is set you up with some kind of gum recession therapy, or in many cases, refer you to a specialist for treatment.
After that treatment is administered, you’re likely to be given some instructions for special periodontal care to incorporate into your home hygiene routine, along with the suggestion that you come in for a follow-up in two or three months, at least until your gum disease is under control.
That’s all well and good.
But what if you’re a smoker? What if you have a history of gum disease in your family? What if you’ve been under a lot of stress lately due to a special circumstance at work or at home? What if you don’t eat as well as you should?
The best gum disease treatment money can buy will do very little to optimize your chance for lasting oral health without a specialist who fully understands the interconnectedness of your medical history, total health, nutrition, and lifestyle.
That’s the difference in our integrated approach to dental care at the LANAP & Implant Center. Dr. DiGiallorenzo, a widely-regarded specialist in cutting-edge periodontics and implantology, leads our team of professionals who can incorporate multiple solutions and remedies to treat the total person.
In fact, we’re one of the few practices in the country that offers our own Wellness Center so that you can take advantage of wide-ranging health services in conjunction with your actual dental treatment.
Here are just a few of the ways you get more from dental care with this approach:
*Biocompatibility – Rather than amalgam fillings and standard dental implants, patients who have certain allergies or concerns about toxicity can opt for metal-free implants and restorations as an alternative to what you find at most other dental offices.
*Faster Recovery – When you undergo any kind of dental treatment, gum therapy, or oral surgery, your recovery and healing will be impacted by your overall health and lifestyle.
In our dental offices, you can take advantage of smoking cessation support, homeopathy, and massage therapy, just to name a few, that can be incorporated into your overall treatment plan to make recovery faster and easier.
*Optimized Healing – Restoring your oral health requires more than just a dental procedure to treat symptoms. It should also include immunity-boosting strategies that help build your body’s natural defenses for optimized healing.
