Sebastopol, CA dental practice combines comprehensive or general services with advanced, holistic dentistry
U.S. News & World Report has ranked California as the healthiest state in the nation, based on obesity, smoking, and mortality rates. And according to Niche, Sonoma County ranks well within the Golden State for the county’s accessibility to amenities like health care and fitness centers. Sonoma ranked 9th out of the 57 counties surveyed. As a provider of general dental services in Sebastopol CA, Whole Health Dentistry appreciates the role we play in the wellbeing of the area’s residents.
Dentists support not only the health and beauty of the teeth and gums but oral structures as well, since they don’t “live in isolation”; conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease have been implicated in all sorts of diseases that seem to have nothing to do with oral health — from heart di0sease to Alzheimer’s. Additionally, an aching tooth or chronic pain radiating from dysfunction of the jaw joints (TMJ disorders) can affect every aspect of our lives. Sleep suffers. Chewing is painful. Certain food types are avoided, which leads to nutritional deficiencies. The list of ways that our oral health affects our day-to-day lives is long. So, it’s important to look at your partners in dentistry, Dr. Silvano Senn and Dr. Toni Mann, as your partners in health in general.
Speaking of “general,” this term when applied to Whole Health Dentistry refers to its comprehensive and diverse products, procedures, consultations, and treatments. But our approach to dentistry is far from “run-of-the-mill.”
- We don’t cut corners when it comes to therapies, materials, and remedies used to prevent, restore, or beautify smiles. In some practices marketed as “holistic,” for instance, they don’t place fillings made from metals that contain mercury. Yet, they still place dental implants made from another type of metal: titanium. As a truly “biocompatible” practice, Whole Health Dentistry only uses materials that are non-metallic. These materials live in harmony with existing natural tissues. They are appropriate for patients with sensitivities to metals. Plus, our patients love how restorations and replacement teeth made with lovely dental ceramics look just like natural and healthy teeth!
- In the pursuit of oral and overall wellness for our patients, Dr. Senn and Dr. Mann care for the health of the planet too. For instance, as a “mercury-safe” office, we have procedures and equipment in place to properly dispose of waste in an environmentally-friendly manner. That way, our wetlands, waterways, parks and trails can be sustained for future generations to enjoy too.
- Along with the range of dental services designed to prevent oral conditions, restore oral health, and improve the appearance of smiles, Whole Health Dentistry offers many other services and technologies. We are far from the routine with non-invasive TMJ treatment, sleep apnea and snoring therapies, as well as adjunctive and diagnostic technologies, such as VELscope advanced oral cancer screening and ozone therapy.
