Holistic Dentistry - A Whole New Way To Clean Your Teeth!

There probably isn't much difference between a holistic dentist than there is a regular dentist except that those that practice holistic dentistry believe that oral health is a true reflection of a person's overall health and they also take into account the effects of exercising as well as a person's emotional state of mind. They also focus more on nutrition, prevention as well as education. When it comes to cleaning your teeth the holistic dentist will favor the use of more natural ingredients as well as techniques.

Holistic comes from a Greek word that means “relating to the whole”, and it covers an awareness of the physical, the mental and the emotional overall well being of the entire person. So, a holistic dentist will more than likely ask you extensively about your personal lifestyle which will include your exercising habits, the stress in your life as well as your diet. A lot of holistic dentists will not encourage the use of extra fluoride and will focus more on preventing problems by avoiding sugar.

You can adopt a technique used by traditional as well as native cultures to clean your teeth at home. A lot of them will use a toothbrush that is made from twigs of healing plants like the bay, the oak, the fir and the juniper tree. The twigs from these trees seem to contain volatile oils that will help to stimulate the blood circulation and will tighten and clean the gums. They also contain vitamin C which helps to maintain the health of the gums. Unless this is prescribed to you by your dentist or herbalist it's probably best though that you stick with the more traditional brushes. You would need to have one specially ordered for you by a dentist or herbalist to ensure you were not getting any toxins into your body.

On your own though, you can use an alternative to traditional toothpaste by using baking soda, a pinch of salt a long with some water to make a natural paste for you teeth. Another holistic way of cleaning the teeth is by using a WaterPik, this will force water between the teeth and clean them in a safe manner and is quite effective. You can also use malic acid which is found in strawberries to clean the teeth as well. Just take a ripe strawberry and crush it then mix it with a ½ teaspoon of salt and leave it on your teeth for about five minutes. Then brush your teeth good and rinse. This doesn't just clean the teeth but it helps to whiten them as well. Only do this once a week though because too much malic acid could end up damaging the teeth.

Do remember that any kind of alternative medicine or holistic medicine should be used as a complement to any therapies that you are already being asked to use by a doctor. These should not be used as replacements for what your doctor has already prescribed for you.
