Patients considering holistic dentistry ask, “How can I find the best in holistic and biological dentistry?”
Holistic dentistry embraces a philosophy that your physical, emotional, and oral health are all closely interconnected. Changes or infections in your mouth can have a direct impact on how you feel about yourself and on how you feel physically. In that same manner, health conditions and diseases can significantly affect your oral health. Holistic dentistry addresses you as a total person not just the condition of your teeth and gums. Holistic dentists also evaluate the materials that are used and the long-term impact that they may have.
Biological dentistry, in combination with the holistic approach, emphasizes mercury-safe dentistry and the biocompatibility of materials used in dental procedures.
If you are looking for a professional dental practice that provides whole health dentistry for patients in Calgary, Alberta, Airdrie, Red Deer, Canmore, and surrounding communities, you may wish to consider several factors, such as:
What is the philosophy of the dentistry team?
Are services available to meet my needs and those of my family?
Does the practice follow holistic or biological standards of care?
Family is a priority to Drs. Robertson and Redd. We know how busy our Calgary families are. We also recognize that optimal health requires a comfortable, trusting, and familiar relationship with your dental team. We educate and serve children to senior citizens with their health and comfort in mind.
Certain standards of care influence dental professionals who provide holistic and biological dentistry. Mainly, the focus is on the whole person, using the best, safest materials and procedures, as well as safely removing harmful toxins or materials. That’s why our practice is mercury-safe and mercury-free. When removing traditional silver amalgam, or mercury fillings, we follow the standards set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. We also use biological, also called biocompatible, materials for our patients’ health and wellbeing.
