    Our Approach

    Holistic DentistryAt Dentistry by Dr. David-The Bolton Center for Dental Wellness, we believe in providing our patients with care consistent with holistic dentistry, also known as biological or integrative dentistry. What this means is that we consider the impact of dental treatments and materials on the overall health of the individual. We focus on using biocompatible materials and techniques that support the body’s natural healing processes.

    We take a comprehensive approach to oral health, considering not only the teeth and gums but also how oral health influences overall well-being. When we meet with our patients who are experiencing pain or discomfort, we not only consider their current symptoms but look more deeply to identify the root cause. We use these alternative therapies alongside conventional dental treatments to address issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral infections.

    At Dentistry by Dr. David, our general and family practice, we embody some key practices and principles of biological dentistry that we include as part of our dental care approach including:

    • Minimally Invasive Techniques: Biological dentists prioritize conservative approaches to dental treatments, seeking to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
    • Use of Biocompatible Materials: We avoid the use of dental materials that may be harmful to the body, such as mercury amalgam fillings, and instead opt for biocompatible alternatives like composite resin or ceramic materials.
    • Safe Removal of Mercury Amalgam Fillings: We are a SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) certified dentists and follow strict protocols for the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings to minimize exposure to mercury vapors during the process as recommended by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology. Learn more about the process we follow for Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal.
    • Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling: In some cases, we provide guidance on nutrition and lifestyle factors that can impact oral health, such as diet, stress management, and oral hygiene practices.
    • Integration with Other Healthcare Providers: We collaborate with other healthcare practitioners, such as naturopathic doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors or integrative medicine specialists to provide comprehensive care that addresses the underlying causes of oral health issues.

    Why It Benefits Our Patients

    Holistic dentistry is important because it recognizes the interconnectedness of oral health with overall health and well-being. Poor oral health has been linked to various systemic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. By addressing oral health in a holistic manner our goal is to support the body’s natural healing processes and promote optimal health from the inside out.
