Do you know what holistic dentistry is? As a family and holistic dentist, Dr. Brad Greenfield makes it his business to educate his patients on this specific form of dental care.
Holistic dentistry concentrates on the process of overall health and wellness, rather than just on the treatment of oral diseases. All procedures are conservative and take into account the patient’s best interest. Holistic dentistry is good for the environment as well since all materials used are biocompatible. These materials and tools include:
- A rubber dam
- A clean sweep barrier
- A hi-flow mercury vapor filtration unit
- Pure medical grade oxygen
- Laser for disinfection and desensitization and periodontal therapy
- Low-fusing ceramic blocks
- CEREC technology
- Caries dye indicator
- LED laser light
- Valplast dentures and partials
- Fluoride-free cleanings
- Digital x-rays
- Intraoral camera photos
Dr. Greenfield and his team closely follow the “Dr. Bob Marshall protocol” for the safe removal of amalgam/mercury restorations. The Marshall Protocol is a medical treatment philosophy used by physicians worldwide to treat a variety of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Using these guidelines, Dr. Greenfield is able to provide you with quality, conservative, dental care that has a positive impact on your overall health.
Upon request, Dr. Greenfield will refer holistic practitioners who can help you best achieve your health goals.
With a holistic approach, your entire body is taken into consideration, rather than just the mouth. Dr. Greenfield understands that your oral health is interrelated to the health of your whole body and that the two can rarely be completely separated.
