What is Holistic Healthcare?Holistic Healthcare is a system of health care that involves analyzing the system as a whole and not just piece by piece. In Holistic dentistry, we look at the body as one entire system. We treat the teeth and gums as one system. We also look at the teeth and gums as a representation of overall body health. For example, bad gums can be related to heart problems, while teeth problems can lead to or be caused by kidney problems.
Assure a Smile believes that your teeth will enjoy a much healthier lifestyle through proper nutrition, diet, and safe care. Since our diagnoses are all based on holistic theory, we can discover many different body ailments through examining the teeth and gums. This is a preventative approach that lessens the likelihood of developing both gum disease and tooth decay.
3. Healthy Gums Healthy gums build the foundation for healthy smiles. Additionally, healthy gums protect the body from incoming bacteria and can prevent the development of other serious disease. In fact, the American Academy of Periodontology has issued a warning to Americans: Gum disease can significantly increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. We believe that if you want a perfect smile, you have to care for the gums and surrounding oral tissues. 4. Jaw Alignment Proper jaw alignment is needed to keep teeth straight. As a holistic dentistry practice, Assure A Smile evaluates, diagnosis, and treats total patient health. This includes issues
of jaw alignment and TMJ, which are challenges that are typically overlooked by traditional dental offices. When left untreated, alignment issues may cause long-term pain, discomfort, and shifting teeth.
