Holistic Dentistry

We don’t just treat teeth and gums. We recognize that your teeth and gums are attached to a human being you. Our dentists are well read in areas other than just dentistry and understand the connection between your teeth, gums, jaw joint (TMJ), airway, digestive tract, heart and other organs. Where necessary we work closely with GPs, holistic dietitians, naturopaths, chiropractors, remedial massage therapists, and many more talented practitioners. Our goal is to make the biggest positive impact on your overall health, we don’t just stop at your pearly whites.

At Heal Dental Care, we have special equipment for Safe Amalgam Removaland provide a range of supplements and herbs where necessary to support your health goals. We have a specific focus on nutrition, and aim to improve your overall health, energy and well-being.

The 5 Pillars of Health

We pride ourselves in being up to date with current trends and advances in dentistry. However, we are even more proud of our knowledge of holistic treatments. Your teeth and gums are attached to a person you. We have a wealth of knowledge in how your mouth affects the rest of your body, and how the rest of your body affects your mouth. Did you know that we sometimes can tell if you have a nutritional problem by just looking at your tongue?

1. Detoxification

You wouldn’t renovate a house without first getting rid of the rubbish. The same goes for your body. Sometimes, it may be beneficial to clean out the gunk, to give your body a better chance to start the healing process. This can be simply using Safe Amalgam Removal, or it might require working closely with other health providers to support your liver and gut through change.

2. Nutrition

You are what your body is able to absorb. Imagine filling a racing car up with normal petrol. There’s no way it could perform optimally. Your body is the same. By feeding it whole foods that are in harmony with your bodys requirements, your body can be given a chance to heal and stay healthy. We believe there’s no one healthy diet for all. You are an individual and you have nutritional requirements that differ from somebody else. We work closely with holistic dieticians, holistic GPs and naturopaths to help you figure out what foods work best for you.

3. Breathing

Did you know that the way you breathe can affect many things from your sleep and your blood pressure, all the way to your chances of suffering coughs and colds, to asthma, allergy and hay-fever?

4. Mind-set

Your state of mind is a powerful determinant of your health and happiness. There is a well known connection between your mind and your gut. A calm mind allows proper digestion of food, better quality saliva, and an better ability to deal with life’s little hurdles. At Heal Dental Care we provide a beautiful environment to help calm your mind. We also provide yoga, meditation, herbal teas, aromatherapy and a team dedicated to helping bring some calm to your life. We can also refer you to trained counselors for those wanting to take their mind-set to the next level.

5. Movement

Your body is a dynamic piece of kit. It needs to be able to move freely to keep your tissues healthy and vital. Blood flow and lymphatic drainage depend on movement. At Heal Dental Care we have a number of therapists including yoga therapists to keep your tissues moving well.
