Holistic dentistry can provide the best treatment for your dental needs in Mesa
The term “holistic” refers to complete systems, or wholes. That is an accurate description of holistic dentistry, which treats the body as a whole rather than simply treating the mouth. Dr. Fritz works to find the cause of his patients’ problems, not just treat their symptoms.
Dr. Fritz and the staff at New Health Dental are committed to your oral and overall health, because a healthy mouth equals a healthy body. A very important service they provide to their patents to protect and restore their oral health is the safe removal of amalgam fillings. Many of Dr. Fritz’s new patients who have amalgam fillings want them removed. At the time they were placed, most patients were unaware of the potential dangers they posed. Dr. Fritz can remove these old fillings and replace them with new porcelain fillings, which are not only safer but improve the aesthetics of his patients’ smiles.
Although the removal of amalgam fillings is an important part of holistic dentistry, it is not the only part. The focus is actually on maintaining optimal health of the mouth and body. A very important aspect of this is regular checkups and professional cleanings.
Your daily oral hygiene is vital to keeping your teeth healthy between your appointments. If you do not brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily, plaque can build up and turn in to tartar. Even with proper oral hygiene, it is difficult to remove all of the plaque between your teeth, or from the molars at the back of your mouth. The only way to remove it and reduce the risk of developing cavities or gum disease is to have your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. In addition to a professional cleaning, you will also receive an oral examination.
While many dentists may just look for symptoms of cavities or gum disease, Dr. Fitz also looks for signs of sleep apnea, TMJ/TMD, orthodontic problems, and anything else that could have a negative impact on your health. If a problem is detected, the doctor and his team will create a customized treatment plan that fits your individual needs.
