The connection between dental health and overall health is by now well-established. At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we practice holistic dentistry, which means we believe that a healthy mouth has a positive effect on systemic health.
To put it another way: since the mouth is a part of your body it should not be considered an independent system. Proper nutrition, to cite just one example, plays a role in preventing or reversing conditions like gum disease.
Holistic dentistry also promotes good overal health by avoiding dental materials that are toxic. Mercury is case in point. Mercury has been used in amalgam (metal) dental fillings for more than a century. Amalgam fillings became the standard because it is strong and durable. But mercury is a known toxin, so we do not use it. All of the products we use are safer for you than traditional dental solutions.
Holistic dentistry, sometimes called natural dentistry, is not a fad or buzz term; it is something we are passionate about. We can help you restore your overall health.
