Holistic Dentistry with Biological Root Canals

Holistic Dentistry with Biological Root Canals

Holistic Dentistry is becoming more popular as people begin to realize that alternative therapies could be the way of the future.

Holistic comes from the word, “Wholistic,” which literally means, “The whole.” Dentistry for Health NY educates patients on how important oral health is and how it can play a vital role in overall health.

Holistic Dentistry or biological dentistry takes into account the patients emotional and physical health using natural therapies that are often combined with conventional dental procedures in order to prevent and diagnose gum disease and tooth decay.

The medical community has spoken and the results are in linking gum disease to heart health, systemic inflammation, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

Holistic Dentistry at the Dentistry for Health NY is more than mercury filling removal. The center uses biocompatible dental materials to avoid reactions from other types of dental materials. Dentistry for Healthy NY believes that whatever is placed in the mouth will affect the rest of the body.

Root Canals

For some dentists, root canal therapy is the only way to save a dying tooth. Conventional dentists believe that root canal therapy is safe and effective.

According to research conducted by Dr. Boyd Haley from the University of Kentucky, 75 percent of teeth that have had root canal therapy have residual infections in the dentinal tubules. That lingering bacteria can produce toxic waste that could enter the blood stream affecting all parts of the body.

In some cases, root canals may be avoided with healing remedies, lasers, and nutritional intervention. Because teeth are connected to the rest of the body, the areas surrounding the infected tooth, even if it has been extracted, could affect the overall balance of energy flow in the body.

Using the latest dental technology, including bio-compatible cement and lasers, the canals inside the tooth can be sterilized and sealed helping reduce toxin release and bacteria formation.
