Did you know that your oral health affects your entire body?
Likewise, a medical condition can affect the health of your teeth and gums. Holistic dentistry focuses on the entire health and well-being of the patient.
For example, patients with diabetes are more likely to develop gum disease as they have a low resistance to infection. We are aware of these factors so you can maintain total body health.

Total Body Health With Holistic Dentistry
Ourholistic dentists focus on protecting the entire health of the patient. This means examining your teeth, gums, and jaw for what could indicate larger problems with your health. For example, worn tooth enamel could indicate nighttime teeth grinding or an eating disorder. Our holistic dentists act like detectives to see the bigger picture with your health.
Mitigating Risk Factors
Our holistic dentists understand how certain family histories, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices increase your risk for injury and disease. For example, smoking increases your risk for oral and throat cancers. With this information, our holistic dentists would make sure that you have regular oral cancer screenings. This is just one of the many ways our dentists look out for you and your family.
