Holistic dentistry is concerned with the health of the whole body, including the mind. Your body is made up of systems, organs, and tissue that are all connected to each other. What happens in your mouth affects the health of your entire body.
Research indicates a link between gum disease and a host of ailments such as heart disease, strokes, and pregnancy complications. A disease that starts in the mouth can affect the rest of your health.
Your bodily health can also impact your oral health. Diseases like diabetes and autoimmune disorders suppress your immune system, making it harder to fight off oral infections such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Dr. Ted Herrmann believes in educating our patients about the health hazards of toxins in their everyday environment. We work to increase patient awareness of the importance of diet, exercise, sleep, and emotional tranquility to your dental health and overall well-being.
Though metal restorations are often considered a dental standard, many patients have concerns about using metal restorations. For example, some people have adverse reactions to the titanium fixture which is a standard part of most dental implants.
That’s why we use metal alternatives for all our restorations. Our implants are made entirely from ceramic, so they’re safer for you. We’re proud to offer advanced all-ceramic implants from Z Systems and Zeramax.
Dr. Herrmann believes in promoting the well-being of the mind and body in every aspect of his practice. He takes your health very seriously because he personally knows the toll that metal can take on the body.
It all began when Dr. Herrmann discovered he was suffering from mercury poisoning. Years of removing old amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, made him sick. He then began to investigate the dangers of metal and other harmful materials in dental restorations.
His research led him to reimagine his practice, devoting himself to using alternatives to metal and conducting minimally invasive procedures.
For care that encompasses the health of your whole body and mind, choose a holistic approach. Here at Assure a Smile, we’ll give you a beautiful smile that’s compatible with creating a safer and more natural world.
