We are happy to announce that Dr. Supriya Shetty will be participating in this year’s Good Harvest Market Health Fair. They will be discussing the benefits of choosing Biological or holistic dentistry.
Why Biological Dentistry?
So often, we only realize how vital self-care is after we experience a health crisis. As our understanding of the human anatomy increases, however, we are presented with a choice. Will we wait until something is broken to fix it? Or take control of our health now?
How will I be helped by choosing a biological dentist?
German physician Dr. Reinhard Voll studied the relationship between oral and physical health over some 40 years. His findings make for compelling evidence that biological dentistry matters. He estimated that 80% of human disease was related either directly or indirectly to the oral cavity. Dr. Supriya Shetty and Dr. Udoka Holinbeck have fully embraced the importance of supporting our health in advance through the concept of holistic dentistry.
At this year’s Good Harvest Market Health Fair, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how holistic dentistry will help you get started and continue on a path of healthy living.
Preventative Care Is Key
Preventative care typically includes brushing and flossing to help remove plaque from the surfaces and in between teeth. What other steps can you explore to improve your overall and oral health? Working with a holistic dentist allows you to explore how detoxification, cleansing, proper nutrition and eliminating harmful habits play a role in helping you achieve the healthier body you are seeking. Unlike some traditional treatment plans, holistic dentistry evaluates your specific conditions to determine the appropriate treatment.
Maintaining routine dental visits is also key to minimizing your need for more serious dental treatment. Regularly, new studies on how poor oral health can contribute to physical conditions are published. Heart disease, diabetes, and complications during pregnancy are just a few of the more significant health concerns now being linked to poor oral care. Just like you wouldn’t expect to fight heart disease successfully without a routine of exercise and a healthy diet, even holistic dentistry can’t help if you don’t maintain a good habit. When looking to improve overall health, routine, preventative, and comprehensive oral care is as critical as diet and exercise.
Holistic Health Connection
Understanding the mouth-body relationship means your dentist will only perform dental procedures backed by scientific studies and evidence. They do not support the placement of toxic materials, like amalgam fillings, into their patients’ mouths. They do, however, support an end to a ‘one size fits all’ approach to dentistry. Research shows that more than 90% of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations. A holistic dentist with an individualized approach to care may be the first healthcare provider to diagnose a health problem in its early stages.
Holistic dentists are concerned with how oral treatments interact with the rest of your body. Since your body will be affected by what is in your mouth, bio-compatibility testing is vital. As part of your treatment, an onsite naturopath will test dental materials to be sure they are compatible with your body. Also embracing natural treatment, maintaining the function of your natural teeth is a priority. With a combination of advanced technique, technology, and biocompatible materials, holistic dentistry will teach you how to maintain your oral health and your overall health.
Come to this year’s Good Harvest Market Fair on September 22 and see how a holistic dentist can help support your healthy lifestyle.
