What is Biological Dentistry?

Biological Dentistry

Biological dentistry, also known as holistic or integrative dentistry, is an approach to modern dentistry that considers the connection between oral health and overall health. We look at how dental health may impact systemic health and vice versa, considering factors like inflammation, immune function, and the oral microbiome. We address the underlying causes of dental issues rather than just treating symptoms. 

Our ultimate goal is to optimize both the length and quality of life.
