Holistic Dentistry San Diego

Holistic Dentistry San Diego Just what is “holistic dentistry”?  Holistic Dentistry defined as per Google: “Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biologic dentistry, is an alternative approach that focuses on the use of non-toxic restorative materials for dental work, and emphasizes the unrecognized impact that dental toxins and dental infections may have on a person’s overall health.” That’s a mouthful (no pun intended).  In a nutshell, it means that foreign materials in your mouth can certainly affect your health and well-being.  Having a dentist who is acutely aware of this is a good thing.  No, it’s a great thing.  Because it shows that the dentist is not taking the easy way out.  […]

San Diego Cosmetic Dentist

Everyone wants to look their best, and statistics show that the first thing people notice about you is your smile.  Years ago, teeth were teeth.  When they got old-looking, yellow, chipped — or worse yet — rotting, that was that.  And God forbid, should you neglect your teeth to a certain point, you would face the ultimate dread: dentures!  Really… who wants anything in their mouth all day other than their original teeth?  The very thought of dentures puts this writer into a near coma!  You might likely have grandparents that have dentures.  Well let me tell you this: they are a thing of the past!

You know that something must be done sooner rather than later.  But you have concerns.  Chief among them is “How much do dental implants it cost?”  That is a certainly valid concern, but let’s take a look at that concern from a more realistic perspective: how much does it cost to do nothing?  That’s the true concern. Another concern is shifting teeth.  Keep in mind too that your teeth are shifting all of the time, and any space created by a missing tooth means the rest of your teeth will start to “take up that open space” making an implant procedure more difficult.
