Your Holistic Dentist
At Peak Dentistry, we are proud providers of holistic dentistry. That means that we see the strong connection between oral health and overall health so we take a “whole” wellness approach when caring for our patients. We consider long-term effects of dental treatment, strive to address underlying problems rather than simply treat symptoms, and always look for the least invasive solutions for your needs.

What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry places importance not just on the health of your teeth and gums but also on what its impact is on your total body health. Many patients don’t realize just how much the two are interconnected! Infection and bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the mouth, and a vast majority of all systemic diseases have oral symptoms. Cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, low birth weight, and more have all been linked to poor oral health.
This field of dentistry also places great importance on using biocompatible materials rather than potentially toxic metal materials. For example, we remove mercury fillings and instead use composite, or tooth-colored. fillings.
You may have heard of holistic dentistry also referred to as biological dentistry. Many people interchange the two names. If you have any additional questions about holistic dentistry, please feel free to get in touch with our practice!
Why Choose a Holistic Dentist?
Many patients choose a holistic dentist because it fits with their own philosophy about health care. They appreciate the extra consideration given to their complete wellness and the focus on preventing future problems, not just immediate issues. They may also appreciate learning how a healthy mouth ties into a healthy body so they can confidently apply that knowledge to their own daily routine. Others want to avoid the mercury fillings that other dental offices provide. If you think holistic dentistry is right for you, we’d love to see you at our dental office!
