Understanding Holistic Dentistry

At West Lafayette Dental Studio, we take a holistic approach to dentistry. This means that we focus on the overall picture of your health rather than “single tooth dentistry”. Your dental health is directly related to your overall health, so no matter what brings you into our office, we will treat the root cause of your issue rather than just the symptoms.

What is Holistic Dentistry?

A holistic approach to dentistry simply means that we believe your oral health is deeply connected to your overall health. There is no part of your body that is separate from the others, and they all affect one another. We focus on prevention and education to ensure that our patients are the happiest and healthiest they can be.  

How is Dental Health Related to Overall Health?

Just like many factors affect your dental health (such as diet and oral hygiene habits), your dental health, in turn, affects the health of the rest of your body. Studies have shown that oral health issues can contribute to the health of your heart, lungs, and even your brain. Periodontal disease can lead to a higher risk of stroke and heart attack, poor oral hygiene and bacteria build-up can cause respiratory problems, and some studies show that poor dental health is correlated to dementia. With our holistic approach, we keep this in mind and always ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and in sync with the rest of your body.
