Holistic Dentistryin Tampa, FL

Dental health is not just about your teeth – it's about your entire well-being. At Flossologie, we take pride in offering holistic dentistry services that emphasize the natural connection between your oral health and overall health.

What IsHolistic Dentistry?

Holistic dentistry, also known as biological dentistry (not to be confused with biomimetic dentistry), is an approach to dental care that considers the impact of oral health on the entire body. It recognizes that the health of your mouth can affect your overall health and vice versa. We prioritize using materials that support your body's natural healing processes and minimize exposure to potentially harmful substances for a healthier you.

Our Holistic Dentistry Services

We offer a range of treatments designed to meet your unique needs and preferences. These services include:

  • Mercury-Free Dentistry: We do not use mercury amalgam fillings in our practice. Instead, we offer tooth-colored composite biomimetic fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth while providing durable and long-lasting results.
  • Biocompatible Materials: Our commitment to your health means we only use biocompatible materials for your restorations including resin composite and ceramics. These are less likely to cause adverse reactions and are well-tolerated by your body.
  • Safe Amalgam Removal: If you have existing mercury amalgam fillings that you wish to have removed, our team follows strict protocols to ensure safe and effective removal while minimizing your exposure to mercury vapors.
  • Fluoride-Free Options:  We offer a range of fluoride-free options to cater to our patients' diverse needs and preferences. These options are ideal for those seeking a more holistic approach to oral health or who may have sensitivities to fluoride. Rest assured, our team is dedicated to providing personalized care that respects your choices and supports your overall well-being.
  • Nutritional Counseling: Nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal oral and overall health. Our team offers personalized nutritional counseling to help you make informed choices that support your dental and overall wellness goals.
  • Integrated Approach: We work closely with other healthcare providers, including naturopathic doctors and holistic practitioners, to ensure that your dental care aligns with your overall wellness plan.

Fluoride Verses Nano-Hydroxyapatite

When looking for optimum dental health, 2 substances stand out: Fluoride and Nano-hydroxyapatite (nano-HA). Understanding their unique benefits can help you make informed decisions about your oral care

Fluoride: The Traditional Defender

How It Works: Fluoride fortifies teeth by integrating into the enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks and helping to prevent cavities.
Why It's Used: A mainstay in dental care for decades, fluoride is celebrated for its effectiveness in cavity prevention and is found in many toothpastes and mouthwashes.
Considerations: Despite its benefits, fluoride's potential for side effects at high doses has spurred interest in alternative treatments.

Nano-Hydroxyapatite: Nature’s Mimic

How It Works: nano-HA is a biomimetic material that naturally bonds with tooth enamel, repairing and rebuilding it on a microscopic level. It enhances the tooth's natural whiteness and reduces sensitivity by filling in cracks and lesions.
Why It's Used: As a holistic and biocompatible option, nano-HA aligns with natural health principles, offering an effective alternative for those sensitive to fluoride or seeking a more natural approach to dental care.
Considerations: nano-HA is particularly effective in remineralizing enamel and providing relief from sensitivity, making it a standout choice for comprehensive oral health

Making Your Choice

Whether you lean towards the time-tested efficacy of fluoride or the natural, restorative properties of nano-HA, both options serve to strengthen and protect your teeth. Your decision might be influenced by personal health philosophies, sensitivity concerns, or the desire for a more natural approach to dental care.
At Flossologie, we're here to guide you through these choices, ensuring your smile is not only beautiful but healthy and strong. Speak to us about your oral health preferences—we're dedicated to tailoring our care to suit your needs.
