What Is Holistic Dentistry?

South Texas Smiles proudly offers services in biological dentistry, which means that we approach our patients’s dental care with conservative, holistic principles in mind. Read on to learn more about what holistic dentistry is and how it can make a difference for you and your loved ones.

Our Holistic Training

As holistic dentists, we care about how your oral health impacts your overall health, and vice versa. Dr. Maldonado has her Board Certification in Naturopathic Medicine and Integrative Biological Dental Medicine, which has given her a unique ability to precisely assess how her patients’s oral health and overall health are interconnected.

Treating Your Oral & Overall Health

The team at South Texas Smiles stresses the importance of preventive dentistry not just to protect your teeth, but also to prevent ailments like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. These serious conditions have been linked to poor oral health. We take into account your entire health history in order to provide more accurate and efficient oral care that helps keep your entire body feeling and functioning well.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

Mercury is a toxic substance, but it’s commonly found in dental fillings! Here at South Texas Smiles, we only use non-toxic and mercury-free materials for our dental treatments. We can even remove your mercury amalgam fillings and replace them with mercury-free ones. Mercury-free fillings have a variety of benefits beyond safety, including greater durability and a more natural look.
