You may have heard the term holistic dentistry thrown around and want to know what it’s really about. The best way to do that is to go to the source. As a dental clinic who practices holistic dentistry, we can tell you what holistic dentistry really is and how it can benefit your life.

Holistic dentistry is about seeing dentistry as one part of a much larger whole. When we treat your teeth, we take into account our patient’s entire well-being, drawing from both Western-based science and technology and Eastern-based natural healing methods. We offer counsel on tooth-healthy nutrients, toxic dental materials to evade, and incorporate other alternative medical practices.

Many dentists employ the use of mercury bound metal amalgams to fill larger cavities. Not only are these not very aesthetic in appearance, but the mercury that holds together the various metals in the filling can be hazardous. That’s why we at Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD use composite resin fillings. They are risk-free and can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD advocates great caution when exposing your teeth to fluoride. At certain levels, fluoride can create a harmful condition called fluorosis. This consists of damaged tooth enamel, forming white spots on the teeth and in severe cases, brown spots and further damage.
