California Dentist Orange County Fillings Removal

モAn ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"

Those are the wise words spoken by the American Renaissance man, Benjamin Franklin when giving his perspective of medical practices during the day.ᅠ Today, those words have equally important status as all medical practitioners adopt this message of prevention rather than treatment.ᅠ Dentists are no different.ᅠ They are insistent about good oral maintenance like regular brushing, flossing and dental visits to minimize the chances of future dental problemsᅠᅠᅠ

While the extent of most dentists' practice of prevention is regular brushing and flossing, there are a select few who take it to an even higher level in a form of dentistry coined ムHolistic Dentistry'.ᅠ Thinking outside the box, holistic dentists looks at the impact of your teeth, jaws, and mouth on your overall physical and psychological wellness.ᅠ The common link is that every one of our tissues and organs interact with one another, either directly or indirectly, so you shouldn't isolate problems since they are only confined to a certain area ヨ hence, the holistic approach.ᅠ In San Clemente, Dr. Thomas Hayes Risbrudt practices holistic dentistry to great success.ᅠ

He acknowledges that many of his patients were hesitant and reluctant of holistic dentistry.ᅠ He empathized with them since it is human nature to question what we don't understand.ᅠ Never forcing his holistic practices, Dr. Risbrudt will cater to his patient's needs.ᅠ If they're not interested then that's fine, but if they are curious, Dr. Risbrudt will gladly explain what holistic dentistry practices he has adopted as well as answering any questions or concerns the patient many have.ᅠ His track record speaks for itself.ᅠᅠThe patients who have adoptedᅠhis holistic preventative approach notᅠonly have fewer dental problems, but have fewer healthᅠproblems in general.ᅠᅠIf anything, Dr. Risbrudt isᅠjustᅠglad to knowᅠthat holistic dentistryᅠcanᅠbe theᅠtriggerᅠthat will stimulate theᅠpatient to be moreᅠaware of their body, andᅠto treat it with the respect it deserves.ᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠ

Although some consider holistic dentistry as being ムalternative', to Dr. Risbrudt, a lot of it is plain common sense.ᅠ For example, much of holistic dentistry practices focuses on the type of materials used in dentistry.ᅠᅠOne of theᅠmain issue is mercury fillings (amlagrams) where Dr. Risbrudt is a staunch opponent of their use.ᅠ Although there has been evidence on both sides supporting and opposing the health concerns of mercury fillings, to Dr. Risbrudt it is simply a matter of putting a known toxic substance in his patient's mouth when there are healthier, less-toxic alternatives.ᅠ Consequently, Dr. Risbrudt is qualified in taking out mercury filling removal, and he can attest that more and more individuals are requesting this procedure.ᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠ

Another major holistic dentistry practice is the application of good nutrition to maintain healthy teeth.ᅠ While this is common sense, there are a variety of nutritional supplements available targeting the problems of the teeth like preventing gum (periodontal) disease and natural products inhibiting the growth of plaque-causing bacteria.ᅠ

If you're interested in learning more about holistic dentistry in San Clemente and how it may be beneficial to you, Dr. Risbrudt will gladly discuss any issues in an initial consultation.
