When people think of alternative medicine, they usually think of acupuncture, massage and other practices, but usually dentistry doesn't come to mind. However, there are places across the country that are using holistic methods to treat dental health issues, opening the door to a new aspect of alternative medicine that many people may not have considered before.
"Many of our patients have tried traditional medicine with unsatisfying results. We offer an alternative look - a look into how their mouth affects their overall health - with some amazing results," said Marvin Pantangco, D.D.S., of the Center for Natural Dentistry in San Diego.
This is a controversial subject, however, and holistic dentists may not be for everyone. For example, these dental practicioners argue against ingesting fluoride, while the American Dental Hygienists Association believes that drinking fluoridated water is a safe and inexpensive way to combat tooth decay. This is one of many subjects on which holistic and traditional medicine have varying views.
There are many affordable dental plans available to help people find the dentist that is best for them.
