What is holistic dentistry?
Holistic dental care is a type of dentistry that takes into account the overall health and well-being of the patient. Holistic dentists, such as Dr. Beth Skovron of Heritage Dental in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, focus on providing treatments that are not only safe but also promote the body’s health. This differs from traditional dentistry, which typically focuses solely on treating oral problems like cavities or gum disease.
What sets holistic dentistry apart from traditional dental care?
Holistic dentistry emphasizes preventive care and early detection, seeking to manage and avoid problems rather than treat them after they have already occurred. Holistic dental care performed by a biological dentist also emphasizes healthy diets, nutritional supplements, stress reduction techniques, and lifestyle changes to maintain good oral health. Holistic and biological dentists are also more likely to use non-toxic materials when performing procedures such as fillings.
Holistic dentists provide higher-quality patient care by taking a more natural approach to dentistry. This approach emphasizes the need for a strong connection between the dentist and patient, as well as considering factors such as stress levels, diet, and lifestyle before making any recommendations or performing any procedures. In fact, Dr. Skovron is mindful of phobic patients who require dental work but have a fear of the dentist’s chair. She offers gentle treatment and combines it with sedation methods that work, including the pill anxiolysis or nitrous oxide administration. Her spa-like setting at the office and almost three decades of experience will put patients at ease, knowing they are in good hands with our team of professionals at Heritage Dental.
