Whole Person Dentistry observes and deals with the mind, body, and spirit of the patient, not just his or her “Teeth.” This approach to dentistry encompasses both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world’s great traditions in natural healing.
The basic principles of a Whole Person based practice are:
|Earliest Possible Prevention and Treatment of Dental Malocclusion
(bite problems = physical imbalance)
|Avoidance and Elimination of Toxins From Dental Materials
|Establishing proper TMJ function, including correct Cranial Balance
of the Head, Neck, and Jaws
|Proper Nutrition for the Prevention and Reversal of
Degenerative Dental Disease
For each patient, Whole Person Dentistry is a different journey down the same road. Because every person is unique, and their history is unique, it follows that their treatment will also be unique.
For the Dentist, Whole Person Dentistry can be much like a good mystery or puzzle, waiting to be investigated, have the pieces put together, and solved.
Whole Person Dentistry can be a part of each person’s journey to improved health. For some patients this type of care is more vital than for others. It is, however, very important that everyone be aware of the dangers of inappropriate or improper dental care.
Though modern American dentistry has progressed far from its origins of using wooden teeth, there are still some areas where it lags behind the rest of the medical world. Integrated Health Care, treating the person as a whole instead of a collection of symptoms and diseases, is critical to our well-being, Because modern American dentistry mainly treats the symptoms of a patient, it can miss the body-wide effects dentistry can have.
