Holistic Dental Health
HOLISTIC DENTAL HEALTH
What is Biological Holistic Dental Hygiene?
Holistic dentistry, also known as biological dentistry, observes you as a whole person,
Physical, emotional, spiritual and mental state.
Nirvana Dental Apothecary Dental Hygiene Clinic views holistic dental hygiene into 3 pillars.
I. We observe the body as one full complex organic unit. Mind-Body- Mouth & Spirit.
Registered Dental Hygienists and Dentist use natural therapies and in combination with conventional ones to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases of the oral cavity that are linked to systemically.
If there is inflammation within the body there is inflammation within the oral cavity. We see the body and the mouth as internal eco-systems that are connected. When one is polluted so to the other.
We believe our thoughts create our reality. We encourage some form of yoga and meditation to calm the mind.
Food creates thoughts, we encourage healthy nutritious whole food way of eating. We are what we eat is very true. When our body is nourished, we nourish our mouth and spirit.
After 6 minutes of ingesting sugar, the sugar travels through your body’s blood stream, into the brain, into your teeth. The blood within your tooth decreases by 70%, creating a vulnerable tooth to decay. Tooth decay begins within the tooth. Not outside. The roots inside your tooth house the nutrients that create a strong healthy tooth. This is an example of holistic dentistry. Seeing the mouth-body connection from within.
II. Biocompatible Oral Care Products Used
We follow The College of Dental Hygienist Scope of Practice. We use all the same cleaning instruments used in traditional dental hygiene. The professional holistic dental cleaning is the same as a traditional dentist's office visit, except we only use Biocompatible products. Biocompatible: not harmful or toxic to living tissue.
We firmly believe you can safely ingest any oral products we use during your dental cleaning.
We avoid and eliminate toxins from our dental materials. Anything you put into your mouth is absorbed in the body within 6 minutes or less. Meaning when you rinse with fluoride for a minute, yes! the fluoride is absorbed into the body-brain-organs- and blood, it is a toxic substance.
III. We focus on Prevention and treatment of gum disease at its biological basis. As well as we focus on prevention and treatment of dental malocclusion.
Your teeth are held in by the gingiva (gums) and alveolar bone (jaw bone.) Preventive routine professional dental scalings (cleanings) help prevent and treat periodontal gum disease. We believe in neuromuscular dentistry. The importance of how the maxilla and mandible occlude. If you have an imbalance within your occlusion/bite, you could possibly have issue with your body skeletal structure, digestion, joints, feet, gum disease and mental state. How the head and neck articulate with your body, dictates the communication and type of relationship your head and body will have. If you have an imbalance within your occlusion/bite that could pose physical imbalance.
We only use biocompatible oral care products for you to use during your pre-rinse, gum mask, tooth polish, gum massage and final rinse.
Our oral care products are: Fluoride Free, SLS Free, Gluten Free, Glycerin Free, Canadian Made, Vegan, Organic and Wildcrafted.
