holistic dentistry

(redirected from biological dentistry)

holistic dentistry

A field of alternative dental healthcare which treats the teeth, jaw, and related structures with specific regard to how the therapy will affect the entire body. Holistic dentistry addresses a wide range of dental problems, including problems with specific teeth related to acupuncture meridians and the autonomic nervous system, toxicity and/or toxicity from dental restoration materials, electrogalvanism and ion migration and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Alternative dentists may use acupuncture, biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, herbal medicine, homeopathy and other techniques (see Amalgam toxicity, Amalgameter, Bass method, Dental amalgams).

The German biological dentistry people can give you reams of information about toxic, infected root canals (corpse in the attic, the tooth is dead and frequently infected giving off many biological poisons interfering with cellular metabolism) and improperly removed wisdom teeth: dentists sometimes neglect to remove the periodontal ligament that holds the tooth to the bone; the bone then thinks that the tooth is still there and doesn't heal the cavity where the missing tooth was, which can create a chronic infection whose toxins permeates the whole body.
