Biodentistry strives to help you have healthy teeth that last for many years to come. It is our passion to help patients understand the connection between mouth-and-body health. When you visit our comfortable dental practice, you can trust we will care for all of your dental needs with the utmost professionalism, consideration and respect.
What Is Biodentistry?
Biodentistry, or biological dentistry, is a widely-practised holistic approach to modern dentistry. At Scott Makiol Biodentistry, we understand that the teeth and gums are integral parts of our body and not separate entities. Ultimately, we recognise that our oral health can significantly impact our overall health and wellbeing.
Scott Makiol Dentistry provides you with a holistic approach, combining that with the best standards of modern clinical dentistry. At our Moorooka dental practice, our dentistry does not solely focus on the teeth, gums, soft oral tissues, and jaws; we also prioritise your overall health.
Why Do We Adopt a Biodentistry Approach?
Biodentistry allows us to provide our patients with a more comprehensive approach to their oral health needs and aesthetic goals. We cater to the individual person as a whole, including diet and nutrition, coupled with the highest standards of modern scientific dentistry.
We exercise conscious consideration of biocompatible, non-toxic materials and conservative treatments that work naturally with the body's chemistry. We strive to preserve our patients' natural smiles while also improving their oral health and appearance.
With biodentistry, there are fewer side effects, reduced cost, reduced impact on other parts of the body, and fewer unintended medication interactions.
Our Focus on Nutrition
Current scientific research looks closely at how the foods we consume significantly affect the bacteria in our bodies and how our gut health affects our overall health and wellbeing. These colonies of bacteria are called microbiomes.
The first microbiome of our digestive tract is found in our mouth. Therefore the first step in ensuring a healthy gut, mind and body is to have a healthy and happy microbiome in your mouth.
Brushing and flossing are, of course, essential measures for keeping our teeth, gums and oral cavity in excellent health. But, more importantly, the foods and drinks we consume play the most significant role of all.
Today's diet of processed foods and high sugar intake is the leading cause of tooth decay and other oral health issues. A balanced diet contains necessary vitamins and minerals, like protein, calcium, vitamins A and C, and more.
These nutrients contribute to healthy saliva production and remineralisation that strengthens enamel and controls bacteria in the mouth.
We believe that nutrition plays a vital role in a person's overall health, including the teeth and gums. At Scott Makiol Biodentistry, we can provide advice and guidance to changes patients can make to improve their daily lives.
