Holistic Dental Bad Breath Tratment

If you suffer from Bad Breath or Halitosis and have not found a successful treatment for it, then we have the answer. The CloSys II Oral Rinse and Toothpaste.

One of the most common causes of Bad Breath is advanced Gum Disease and sometimes this is the only sign that gum disease exists. In most cases even your closest partner won't even tell you of your problem.

Bacteria accumulating under the gums produce odour causing volatile sulphur compounds called VSCs which are a similar odour to rotten eggs.

Not only do these VSCs cause bad breath but they also promote the advancement of the gum disease.

At Holistic Dental we have the CLOSYSII ® ORAL RINSE AND TOOTHPASTE products available that not only cover up the odours causing Bad Breath, but will actually destroy them. CloSys II can also assist in the prevention of gum disease in your continuing care and maintenance program.

At Holistic Dental our dentists can work with you and following Comprehensive Examination and Diagnosis they can determine the cause of your problem and recommend the best treatment for you.

Fighting gum disease

Source: Cosmetic Dentist Melbourne

Gum disease is caused by a layer of sticky bacteria, called plaque, which constantly accumulates on the teeth. The disease can affect one tooth or many and the first symptoms often go unnoticed. If not treated it can lead to bad breath, bleeding, pain and even tooth loss. The effect of harmful bacteria entering the blood stream can lead to heart abnormalities, stroke, respiratory disease, and in pregnant women underweight or premature babies, or even miscarriage.

We recommend seeing us regularly so that we can check for signs of gum disease, and advise you on how to avoid it or bring it under control. It is important to have regular hygiene appointments, where we remove plaque and advise you on how best to care for your teeth and gums. Of course, it is also important to follow our advice, brushing your teeth twice a day and cleaning between them and underneath the gum line.

Medical research has established the crucial link between dental health and complete physical well being. Holistic dentistry addresses just this.

importance of being a highly skilled and technically profi cient dentist, our Holisitic or Whole Body Dentist takes the broad view of the dental profession with a philosophy that recognizes that the work done in the mouth has effects on the entire body with either positive or negative results. He is aware of these relationships and minimizes the invasive quality of these procedures. He also recognizes that disorders in the body can be refl ected in the mouth.

Mercury, the second most toxic element, is used in fi llings where it can produce an unpleasant metallic taste and also be released into the body causing or aggravating health problems. Whilst other metals are not as toxic as mercury they nevertheless represent an unnecessary potential hazard to health and are therefore rarely used in holistic dentistry.

It is vital that any materials introduced during dentistry are biocompatible; that is they should not present a health azard. Holistic dentists will only use materials and methods that do not cause adverse functioning of the body systems. Sometimes,patients need to be tested for compatibility of materials.

The use of fl uoride is considered benefi cial as it strengthens tooth enamel but holistic dentists no longer recommend it because  of the potentially toxic nature of fl uoride. Tooth decay can be controlled by sensible diary habits.

Drugs invariably cause some imbalance in the working of the body. For this reason they are not frequently used in holistic dentistry. The holistic dentist will use homeopathic remedies, clinical nutrition, fl ower essences and other natural remedies. For example homeopathic remedies are administered prior to treatment in order to alleviate anxiety and after treatment to aid speedy recovery.

The position of the jaw joints can affects the patient’s well-being. Any mal-position can result in sore muscles, ear  roblems such as tinnitus and clicking of the joint. Holistic dentists take into account when providing treatment and can  elp the condition by appropriate treatment.
