Holistic dentistry is a more gentle approach that allows us to focus on treating the entire body through oral health. The holistic approach also means that we provide metal-free, all-natural, non-toxic, and biocompatible products and treatments. At Smiles for Health, you’ll get truly personalized, patient-focused care.
The Benefits of Holistic Dentistry
At Smiles for Health, we believe your oral health is tied to your overall health. Where traditional dentistry treats your mouth as if it is separate from your body, a holistic dentist like Dr. Zorro treats the mouth with your overall health in mind. That’s why, in addition to general, preventative, and cosmetic treatments, we provide nutritional counseling, Botox injections, and craniofacial massage. We believe the holistic approach allows us to provide the best dental care possible and allows us to keep our patients healthier overall. At Smiles for Health, we use all-natural, essential oil-infused toothpaste, and mouthwashes.
The only metal we use in our treatments is our tools. We do not administer amalgam (“silver”) fillings or metal crowns, as we don’t believe these are healthy options.
Traditional amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals that frequently includes liquid mercury. Instead of this potentially harmful material, we use a safer alternative called composite, which is made of a mixture of resins. In addition to being safer than amalgam fillings, the composite is made to be the same color as your tooth, making them much less noticeable than silver fillings. We also provide amalgam filling removal for patients who would like to make the change.
For patients that need to repair a tooth with a crown, we use ceramic. Like composite fillings, ceramic crowns are safer and look natural since they are made to match your teeth. We believe metal-free ceramic crowns are the safest, healthiest dental crown on the market.
Additional Holistic Dental Treatments
In addition to dental care, we provide:
- Nutritional counseling
- Botox injections for treatment of TMJ
- Craniofacial massage for treatment of jaw pain
- Non-CPAP sleep apnea treatment
- Aromatherapy to calm nerves
