If you want to embrace your health with a holistic approach, don’t forget that it also involves your dental health. Holistic dentistry focuses on the entire body’s health. That means that at the dental offices of Dr. Shane Nelson, serving Overland Park, KS, you will never need to worry about dental treatments, which might put other aspects of your health at risk. Continue reading to find out what you should know about holistic dentistry.

What Is Holistic Dentistry?

Holistic dentistry takes a strong stand against certain dental practices known to be harmful. That includes the non-discriminate use of fluoride. At Shane Nelson DDS, we provide recommendations for fluoride alternatives.  In addition to this, correlations are made to understand how the body’s entire health affects the teeth and how the health of the teeth affects the rest of the body. Oral health is often a good indicator of what is going on in the rest of the body. 

Who Should Use a Holistic Dentist?

Holistic dentistry can benefit anyone; however, specific categories of people will significantly benefit from this type of care. Those who have sensitivities to particular substances often used in dental offices might find the more all-natural holistic dentistry approach to be a good fit for their specific needs. Holistic dentistry is also an excellent option for people who are especially concerned about what types of substances their bodies are exposed to, materials used and restorative options available.
