A biologic or holistic dentist considers how dental health contributes to overall health.
Cardiac conditions, diabetes and certain cancers are exacerbated by gum disease. It's important to get regular dental cleanings to prevent development of gum disease.
Biologic dentists try to avoid using metal and fluoride. They also advise against root canals. Root canals are not 100% sterile. These dentists recommend removing the infected tooth and replacing it with a non-metallic implant.
Dentists recommend to only get sugars from fruit and to avoid sweets and processed foods.
