Holistic Dentist

Traditional dentistry is often used to treat 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, who want more than what traditional dentistry offers.

Holistic Dentist Q & A

What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry involves treating patients to improve their physical and overall emotional well-being. When you receive care from Dr. Wu, you can expect her to consider several factors, including how certain types of treatments might affect your general health.

For example, she might recommend having mercury fillings removed and replaced with safer materials to lower risks to your health.

What are the benefits of holistic dentistry?

Dr. Wu’s focus on holistic dentistry means that she determines treatment options based on what will help heal your whole body.

Holistic dentistry emphasizes the importance of healing patients as a whole instead of only treating specific symptoms. This kind of dentistry involves considering the biological sources of dental problems, such as tooth decay, for more effective treatment and a lower risk of having these problems occur again.

How are holistic dentistry treatments different from traditional dentistry?

Holistic dentistry only uses materials that don’t contain potentially toxic chemicals or other substances. For example, the materials used in crowns and other restorations are typically BPA-free, which means they lack potentially harmful bisphenol A, to help provide patients concerned about these chemicals with some peace of mind.

Should I have mercury fillings removed?

If you have mercury fillings, you might want to consider having them removed and replaced with other materials.

There has been considerable controversy over whether or not the mercury in these fillings raises the risk of health problems. If you’re concerned about these potential risks, Dr. Wu can take your mercury fillings out and replace them with a mercury-free material.

How can holistic dentistry improve my health?

Holistic dentistry includes advice on other areas of your life that could affect your dental health, which helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums while also improving your general health and well-being.

Holistic dentists often provide advice on nutrition, since there’s a robust connection between your diet and your oral health. In fact, Dr. Wu can discuss your nutrition with you and provide you with information on foods to avoid and foods to include in your diet for healthier teeth and gums.
