What is Holistic Dentistry?
At Bozeman Gentle Dentistry, we practice holistic dentistry because we believe that your dental health is a key part of your overall health. We are unlike other dental practices in that we don’t feel that your mouth is separate from your body and treat it as such. Dr. Murphy believes that you cannot treat one part of the body, such as your mouth, without considering your overall health and the factors that are contributing to your issues. We understand that the mouth and the body are connected, and, in many ways, what is happening in your mouth relates to what is occurring in your body and vice versa. Although it may take a longer time to solve the issue, each patient will come away better informed, more empowered, and in total control of their health.
Benefits of Holistic Dentistry
One of the biggest benefits of holistic dentistry is that we do not believe in a one-size fits all mantra. Dr. Murphy and her team are passionate about looking at each patient as an individual and treating each issue based on the individual’s needs. We also feel that it is important to determine if there is an issue in your overall health that may be contributing to your oral health problems. Many patients are surprised to learn that there are a number of medical conditions that can lead to problems with their oral health. There are also certain oral health problems that can lead to serious overall medical problems if not treated properly and in a timely fashion.
The Latest Technology
Holistic dentistry does not mean that the way we perform treatments changes. We are proud to offer patients state-of-the-art technology and use the latest equipment and treatments that modern dentistry has to offer. Our treatments are not just aimed at improving your dental health, but our goal is also to ensure you remain comfortable at all times.
