Biodentistry, or holistic dentistry, is the diagnosing, preventing, treating and maintaining oral health using natural, biocompatible therapies. However, practising modern biodentistry doesn't mean we neglect leading-edge, scientific dental technologies and techniques.
The Mouth-Body Connection
The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine states biological dentistry emphasises the importance of the mouth-body connection. Illness that occurs within the body may materialise in the mouth and vice versa. Additionally, various factors can affect a person's oral health, such as diet, stress and sleep patterns.
What Is a Biological Dentist?
All biological dentists obtain a BDSc degree and offer a wide range of dental services, like bi-annual cleans, cavity restorations and gum disease therapies. A biological dentist also tries to identify the root cause of a patient's oral health issues. We also discuss the patient's diet, dental hygiene and other health and lifestyle habits.
We Use High-Quality Restorations for a Natural Smile
At Scott Makiol Biodentistry, we use safe, non-toxic materials to repair, restore and improve a person's teeth and gums. Among these materials are metal-free, tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, bridges and more. These restorations look, feel and function like natural teeth.
