This is an alternative approach to the craft which is convinced that Dental Health is directly related to your overall body and mental health. This usually focuses on using biocompatible non-toxic materials that have the capacity of restoring themselves, they eliminate any kind of infection and promote an optimal denture. There is absolutely no Dentist that can perform it all, that’s why our Trust Dental Care clinic has a wide variety of Dental Care professionals who have vast knowledge in overall health that promotes integrated, complementary care and school all patients in the various activities they can engage with the goal of improving their Dental Health.
But the actual focus in Holistic Dentistry is to acknowledge areas where oral disease is more prevalent and can be avoided, structural dysfunction that could impact health and well-being of any patient in a negative way. One of the main rules of Holistic Dentistry is the use of the least traumatic and least invasive means of treatment and diagnosis. It may be looked at as a new age approach, but there has been constant proof that Holistic Dentistry care is directly related with the body’s natural self-preservation ability that includes self-healing and regeneration.
Holistic Dentistry also explains what all Holistic Dentists have in common. They have all come out from a Post Graduate (Doctoral) Program for Dentistry and they are all certified with DDS credentials or DMD. After that, things get a little more tricky, because all of the Dental Professionals that graduated from Dental School and decided to go on the Holistic route, came to the conclusion that the impact of all dental therapies can in fact, be seen throughout the body. They all believe that the mouth isn’t disconnected from the rest of the patient’s body, they are confident that anything done with the mouth tends to have either a negative or positive effect on the overall health of each patient.
The standards for Holistic Dentistry have been created relatively late in the world of conventional Dentistry, back in 1978 many concerned professional Dentists came together to create a community where they shared their common interest in the subject and came up with many treatment modalities that aren’t usually included in any Dental School Curriculum. Many of these modalities were brand new and many others were quite old, they did have additional options of treatment in the options for all patients. All of these Dentists didn’t feel backed by the conventional Dentistry community and thus decided to create an organization that could grant them a forum for discussion and constant development in both innovation and education.
Since this was such an ethereal matter for any normal Dentist, the shift from the dentist’s focus only on dental procedures to a thorough consideration of the many different attitudes and feelings of the patient and the dentist has occurred. The place created is called the Holistic Dental Association, it has been active since we mentioned and hasn’t changed its ultimate goal since it was created. As time goes by, more and more professionals feel inclined to start believing in Holistic Dentistry and even mainstream Dental Practices have adopted many methods that include Holistic approaches to improve their experience with patients. Evolution is a part of everything, Holistic Dentistry is regarded as the next step in Dentistry because of all the implications it has related with the human psyche and its connection with the body.
As there is no school for Holistic Dentistry in the world yet, this Association is as close as Holistic Dentistry has gotten to an actual place for education on the subject. But no school means there are no basic standards for Holistic Dentistry, this gives every Dentist a vastly different approach compared to other Holistic Dentists in the world. The basic education of some of them is usually based on mercury toxicity, orthopedic orthodontics, nutrition and preventive programs. Choosing a Holistic Dentist that is suited for your needs, depends directly on the particular education they had and what their ideas and beliefs consist in.
It is for all these reasons as more that patients from US and Canada travel to Mexico to visit Trust Dental Care. Our treatments are not restricted to your presenting problems, we care about your general health; we care about your smile!
