The Oral-Systemic Connection
The concept of the oral-systemic connection is a relatively new one, but mounting evidence suggests that the relationship between our oral health and the rest of the body is closer than we previously believed.
There are a variety of ways in which issues of the mouth impact the rest of our bodily health. From increased risk of heart disease to the way oral health affects diabetic patients, there’s a lot going on beneath the surface that must be accounted for.
What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry is the belief that all dental procedures be weighed against the potential affects they may have on the rest of the body. Through this philosophy, the team at Berger Family Dental strives to preserve and enhance bodily health through comprehensive dental care that utilizes safe and biocompatible treatments and procedures.
For instance, Berger Family Dentistry never uses amalgam fillings, which are made with mercury, a toxic metal that can potentially seep into the blood stream, causing adverse reactions. We instead use body-safe materials such as composite resin, which is not only a safer biocompatible material but also matches the color of the surrounding teeth, creating a functional filling that is considerably less noticeable than their old silver amalgam counterparts.
