At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we are a holistic practice that considers the patient’s entire body and health, not just the teeth and gums. There are a lot of dentists out there, and most do not take this holistic approach. Why should you choose a holistic dentist?
Your Overall Health
Holistic dentistry promotes total health; what we do encourages your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Yes, we will clean your teeth and examine them for any signs of decay. And we’ll make sure your gums are healthy. But we also want to improve your overall physical well-being.
Our care is individualized to meet your needs. We take into account your physical and emotional health, and develop treatment plans that are specific to you. It is an integrated approach that helps to build a strong immune system, and prevent other health problems.
Filling cavities with mercury-based amalgam fillings is a controversial subject. We never use these materials. And why not? It’s quite simple, really: mercury is a known toxin. Even a tiny amount can be dangerous. We will never compromise the health of any patient by using it.
The same is true of fluoride: it is common in many practices, but it is hazarddous. Studies show it can increase the risk of bone cancer, mental acuity, and other disorders.
At Green Dentistry in San Francisco your dental health is inseparable from your overall health, and holistic dentistry addresses them both. People from Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and the Peninsula come to us for general dentistry and a range of other services. Pleasegive us a call to schedule an appointment today!
