Health & Wellbeing


The human body is an amazingly complex structure. Even today, scientists are continually learning new things about the interactions that take place between the body’s many fascinating parts and systems as they carry out the many different functions that are required for life.

As a holistic dental practice, we understand that the mouth is not separate from the rest of the body. In fact, the mouth is the gateway through which every organ is nourished and sustained. It’s not surprising then that problems with your teeth, gums and mouth, or the types of materials that are used during dental procedures, have the potential to affect other parts of your body and negatively impact on your wellbeing.

Similarly, certain conditions (such as pregnancy, diabetes or heart disease) that have their origins elsewhere in the body may also have the capacity to increase the risk of tooth problems and gum disease. And of course smoking is as detrimental to your teeth, gums and mouth as it is to your lungs.

In this section of the Holistic Dental website, we look at various conditions that can negatively impact your health and wellbeing, and whose cause and treatment is related to issues arising from your teeth, gums, jaw or mouth. We also look at the special care you need to take with your oral health when you’re pregnant,

and explain why Holistic Dental is a mercury-free dental practice.
