Traditionally, dentists have simply treated oral health problems with dental care procedures and left it at that, focusing all of their efforts on treating problems when they popped up. Since then, there has been somewhat of a revolution in the dental care world, with holistic dentistry emerging as a new way of approaching oral health. Instead of simply caring for the mouth, holistic dentists look at the interplay of oral health with complete physical wellness, taking into account your feelings, concerns, and medical history to get a fuller picture of how to best provide dental care.
Holistic dentistry also focuses on prevention. Instead of waiting for problems to arise and providing care targeted at those specific problems, a holistic dentist will help keep problems from occurring in the first place using a wide range of methods. With holistic dentistry, South Shore Dental Care in Massapequa approaches your desire for comprehensive oral health care with a complete tool box that can help meet your overall wellness goals as well.
