You can trust that our services in Sebastopol, CA are authentic examples of holistic dentistry
Dentists in Sonoma County and elsewhere may call themselves “holistic.” But do they actually practice holistic dentistry? Below are some of the ways that holistic dentists like Drs Silvano Senn and Toni Mann distinguish themselves from other dentists in the region, along with the holistic dentistry services in Sebastopol, CA that are available at the office of Whole Health Dentistry.
The mouth-body connection
In all of our procedures, we acknowledge how problems that are present in other parts of the body may originate in oral structures; for instance, we offer oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing that may be at the root of your anxiety, hypertension, chronic fatigue, and other ailments. On an ongoing basis, we’ll assess any life changes, lifestyle factors, medical conditions, medications, and supplements that may challenge the health of your teeth and gums. Likewise, oral problems such as gum disease can present challenges to existing conditions, such as pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
Technologies and techniques that support whole health
Drs Senn and Mann use oxygen/ozone therapy as an antimicrobial and disinfectant. This natural approach promotes healthy healing and minimizes the risk of bleeding and other side effects post-treatment. Other approaches, such as digital imaging, also provide a comfortable and pleasant dental experience. These technologies are associated with 80 to 90 percent less radiation exposure than conventional X-rays and are more convenient and less messy than traditional putty impressions.
Dental materials that are like natural teeth
Whole Health Dentistry uses only dental ceramics to rebuild or replace your teeth. These ceramics include tooth-like, white composite fillings to repair cavities. We are also trained to safely and properly remove silver-colored amalgam fillings made from a combination of metals. Our safeguards minimize the mercury that is released during the removal process, which helps to sustain the health of our patients, staff, and the environment. Since we don’t use metals at all, patients benefit from implants that are made from attractive and durable ceramics to replace teeth. Many dentists still place implants made from a type of metal, titanium.
We don’t just advertise that Whole Health Dentistry as a holistic practice; we are holistic in everything we do. Call 707 549-6333 to schedule your appointment with Drs Senn or Mann at the Sebastopol, CA office.
