Welcome to holistic dentistry, where dental care goes beyond a single approach to fixing teeth. In Melbourne, we use a holistic approach to dentistry that looks at every aspect of your oral health. With holistic dentistry, you get comprehensive care that doesn’t just fix your smile but helps you feel better overall.

What are different ways that we implement holistic dentistry at Greenvale Dental Group?

At Greenvale Dental Group, we incorporate holistic dentistry in several ways to ensure comprehensive care for our patients:

Using biocompatible materials

We prioritise the use of biocompatible materials for dental restorations, such as composite fillings and ceramic implants, to minimise potential allergic reactions and promote overall health.

Ensuring hazard free dentistry

We adhere to stringent procedures and utilise safe materials to ensure a hazard-free dental experience for our patients, prioritising their health and well-being at every step of their journey.

Advice on food and drink

Whilst we may not be nutritionists, our team still provides advice on the impact of certain food and drink on the health of your teeth and gums.

Emphasis on preventative care

We emphasise preventive care measures, including regular dental cleanings, examinations, and screenings, to detect and address oral health issues early before they escalate.

Bringing you peace of mind

We recognise that both the dentist, and dental care in general, can be daunting. That’s why we aim to create a calm and supportive environment for our patients, so you can feel both comfortable and confident as you get the care you need.

Supplying patients with information

We empower our patients with knowledge about oral hygiene practices, lifestyle factors, and preventive measures to help them take an active role in maintaining their dental health.

What is holistic dentistry, and how does it differ from traditional dentistry?

Holistic dentistry considers the entire body when addressing dental issues, focusing on the interconnectedness of oral health with overall well-being. Unlike traditional dentistry, which primarily treats symptoms, holistic dentistry aims to identify and address the root causes of dental problems for long-term health benefits.

How do I choose a qualified holistic dentist?

When selecting any dentist, consider factors such as their qualifications, experience, treatment philosophy, and patient reviews. Look for a dentist who prioritises patient-centred care, uses evidence-based practices, and is committed to ongoing education and training in holistic dentistry. 

At Greenvale Dental Group, not only do we have the expertise to provide effective holistic dentistry, but we also have many satisfied customers that can attest to the quality of our care.

What treatments and services are offered by holistic dentists?

Holistic dentists offer a wide range of services, including preventive care, cosmetic dentistry, restorative treatments, and oral surgery. You can find all of our services here.

How can I maintain my oral health between dental visits in a holistic way?

In addition to regular dental visits, maintaining holistic oral health involves adopting a balanced diet rich in nutrient-dense foods, practising good oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing regularly, managing stress levels, and incorporating mind-body wellness practices into daily life.

What are the long term benefits of holistic dentistry?

By addressing the root causes of dental issues and emphasising preventive care, holistic dentistry can lead to improved oral health outcomes over time. This includes reduced risk of cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. 

Additionally, holistic dentistry emphasises patient education and empowerment, equipping individuals with knowledge and tools to take an active role in their oral health and overall wellness. By understanding the importance of nutrition, lifestyle factors, and preventive care, patients can make informed choices that support long-term health.
