Traditional dentistry often treats dental problems and provide preventive care, but it doesn’t always go far enough. Holistic dentistry focuses on helping patients improve their overall well-being rather than just treating the symptoms of dental problems. At Issaquah Premier Dental, Dr. Diana Wu provides holistic dental care for patients in Issaquah, Washington.
Your teeth are exposed to a multitude of challenges on a daily basis. This includes acidity in diet, bacteria, trauma, and wear from grinding/clenching. A dental filling is a way to restore the tooth to its natural shape and form. Tooth colored fillings are used to closely match the shade of your tooth making the restoration look natural.
Oral Cancer Screening
As part of our holistic approach to our patients’ health, we offer advanced cancer screening to help identify issues early on. In addition to the visual checks, we also offer FidaLab test that checks inaccessible areas of the mouth and can detect the risk of oropharyngeal cancer like throat cancer.
Exams & Digital X-Rays
Whether it’s your first visit or it’s time for your routine checkup Dr. Wu will carefully examine the state of your oral health. This generally entails x-ray examination to identify possible hidden issues and to prescribe the best treatment plan to maintain the health of your teeth and mouth.
Good oral hygiene is essential for healthy teeth and mouth. You can keep your teeth clean and free of plaque and cavities by having regular dental cleanings done. We recommend a cleaning session every six months for patients with normal healthy gums.
When a tooth decay is unattended, the bacteria penetrates deep into the tooth and into the nerve, which causes infection and swelling. When this happens, a toothache develops and undergoes irreversible damage. A root canal treatment is then needed to clean out the infection and fill the space to prevent bacteria from re-infecting the tooth. Root canal treatment allows the tooth to remain in place instead of being removed.
