With people becoming more and more health conscious these days, they may be turning away from traditional medicine for more holistic approaches to wellness. The same can be said for dental care. Here in North Providence, RI, our dentist Dr. Candida Castillo and her team pride themselves on offering biological or holistic dentistry. When a biological dentist treats and cares for your oral health they are also caring for and focusing on supporting your health as a whole.
Your body and mouth are interconnected and diseases that occur either systematic or orally impact one another. By turning to a biological dentist, you get more comprehensive dental care that’s focused on prevention, diagnosis, treatment and maintenance using alternative and natural treatment solutions. Yes, our biological dentist Dr. Castillo will still be able to provide you with all the traditional dental care you need, such as your six-month dental checkups and cleanings, but the approach we take here at Aesthetic Dental Studio is a little different than what you’ll get at a traditional dentist’s office.
A traditional dentist will simply look at your mouth, determine if you’re dealing with any problems and then treat them accordingly, a biological dentist looks at all aspects of your life and how they may factor into your health. We will get to know you and your background, including diet, habits, lifestyle, alcohol intake and more to determine if there are certain aspects that can improve the health of your teeth and gums and whether there are simple changes you can make to your lifestyle to reduce your risk for gum disease, injury and decay, which can also impact your overall health.
Furthermore, when you require a dental restoration such as a filling, a biological dentist will never use metal amalgam or other potentially hazardous dental materials. Instead, we will only use biocompatible and safe materials such as composite resin or porcelain, which not only mimics the look of real tooth enamel but also is completely safe to use.
