When you think of “holistic” care, do you immediately conjure up images of ancient exotic herbal concoctions or white-haired, bearded gurus? Although these associations may not be completely off-base in the tradition of holistic medicine, that’s not exactly what we mean when we say we offer our patients in Short Hills, Livingston and West Orange holistic dentistry at Northfield Dental Group. Let’s take a look at modern “holistic dentistry.”
What Is Holistic Dentistry?
Firstly, the word “holistic” means “whole.” Thus, holistic treatment strives to avoid treating only the problem at hand and is instead intended to address the patient’s health as a whole.
The objective of holistic dentistry is to provide effective dental care with the use of alternative diagnostic approaches, minimally invasive treatments, biocompatible dental materials and recommendations regarding how you can prevent future dental disease or damage.
In addition, our New Jersey holistic dentists collaborate with other holistic health practitioners to provide comprehensive care for you and your family.
