What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic Dentistry is the only true form of Health-Focused Dentistry, and is also referred to using the following terminology:
• Biological Dentistry • Metal-Free Dentistry • Toxic-Free Dentistry • Natural Dentistry
Holistic dentistry enlists the full body and mind in the care and maintenance of the mouth, the gateway to our entire bodies. It is the art and science of medicine that focuses on the care of the whole person, harnessing the body’s innate healing powers. Dr. Yuriy May, a nationally recognized and exceptionally trained Holistic Dentist & Dental Implant Specialist, focuses on a proven natural and scientific approach prior to using pharmacological modalities to treat disease processes, as a measure of last resort. As part of the holistic nature of treatment of the mouth and body, Dr. May proactively monitors overall health factors including focuses heavily on the condition of oral terrain, examining nutritional habits, exercise patterns, exposure to environmental toxins and overall lifestyle choices. Dr. May is able to determine a great deal about patients’ overall health by examining the mouth. At Natural Dentistry, the focus is always on the root cause of the symptom and overall conditions, instead of its symptoms.
Only the top holistic dentists in the country, Dr. Yuriy May included, apply a dental approach that promotes a holistic medicine philosophy, focusing on health and wellness rather than just treating periodontal disease or straightening teeth. The goal is to harmonize patients’ dental wellness with their overall physical and mental wellbeing through the use of non-toxic and biocompatible dental materials and by removing those dental materials shown to be incompatible and harmful to the patient. Natural Dentistry knows all too well about the harmful effects of dental toxins on overall health, from seeing and treating thousands of patients who’ve experienced debilitating effects of dental toxins and hidden oral infections. Because of this, Dr. May’s expertise is key in identifying, isolating and and opting to remove the often unrecognized factors from the patients mouth.
Aside from removing toxic elements and dental materials from patients mouth such as amalgam (mercury) fillings and corrosive metals in implants and other restorations, Natural Dentistry focuses on reinstating health and recovery in the mouth. This is done through cleansing the body of toxins that have accumulated in the body through both removal of toxic dental materials in the mouth and detoxification of the stored toxins in the body. It is well documented that toxicity in the mouth impairs overall immune system, the Dr. May heavily focuses on removing the harmful infections and materials to restore and strengthen the immune systems while reducing systemic inflammation.
Health-Focused Holistic Dentistry is not always conventional, but always strives for ultimate health and individual biocompatibility for each patient. Employing the use of laser dentistry, metal-free and BPA free materials, ozone therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy, intravenous nutritional therapy, homeopathy, detoxification and chelation and other unique modalities of treatment, Dr. Yuriy May has helped thousands of patients regain their health and achieve vitality.
