Holistic Dentistry in Glastonbury, CT

Holistic Dentistry in Glastonbury, CT

Holistic dentistry, also known as biological dentistry, alternative dentistry and progressive dentistry, among other terms, is a form of dentistry that treats dental problems by focusing on all aspects of an individual’s health. As such, a holistic dentist takes into consideration your physical, mental, and emotional health when prescribing treatments for your dental issues.

Holistic dentistry utilizes natural remedies that are safe and effective for patients. In some cases, however, conventional treatments are called upon where the dentist deems it safe and necessary.

Our Approach to Holistic Dentistry

Here at the dental practice of Dr. Steven F. Hinchey, our approach to holistic dentistry involves matching dental therapies to the unique needs of our patients. These includes:

Prevention: Personalized oral education aimed at showing patients how to prevent common dental problems.

Oral Ecology: Identifying the microorganisms that thrive in your oral cavity to determine what will work best to keep disease at bay.

Oral Medicine: Determining what can be safely applied to your teeth and gums to restore good health.

Testing Compatibility with Dental Materials: Some dental materials don’t work for everyone. We carry out non-invasive compatibility tests to ensure you’re safe at all times.

Mercury FREE and Mercury SAFE. Mercury FREE means that we don’t use amalgam silver fillings to treat our patients’ cavities. Mercury SAFE means we have taken extra precaution and invested in advanced equipment that allows us to safely remove amalgam fillings from patients who wish to ditch this type of dental restoration.

Benefits of Holistic Dentistry

When you take care of your teeth, it’s not just your oral health that benefits. The Oral-Systemic connection is real. Your oral health can impact your overall health. According to research, there’s a correlation between your oral health and what happens in other parts of your body. For instance, people who have severe dental problems may be at a higher risk of developing other conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other inflammatory diseases.

At our dental practice, we care for you not only as a dental patient but as a wholesome human being. We provide dental care that is tailored to helping you to achieve wholesome well-being. Contact us today to book an appointment.
