Holistic Dentistry applies the synergistic action of dentistry and holistic therapies. It connects any malfunction of the oral cavity with the general health of the patient.
The induction of holistic therapies in dental practice is governed by certain principles:
- The person is the entity and not the disease.
- Therapy is personalized.
Today the psychosomatic condition of patients is getting increasingly becoming recognized. The holistic approach emphasizes this.
The dentist who acts according to the principles of Integrative Holistic Therapy is informed on the mildest alternative interventions to the patient’s oral cavity and focuses on the importance of prevention.
Holistic dentistry is an art; the art of observing and comprehending the process of the ill human being.
