Holistic Dentistry is the concept that procedures done in the mouth impact our entire bodies.

When we see a patient, we recognize that imbalances in the body can manifest in the mouth, head, and neck region. As well, what we as dentists do in the mouth will have benefits and consequences to the rest of the body.

The mouth mirrors body health – especially the tongue and gums. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, tongue diagnoses were used to detect imbalances and diseases in the body.

As an acupuncturist, Dr. Chow recognizes the energetic effects of dentistry and dental materials. Elements Dental uses acupuncture and energy healing for anxiety, head and neck pain, post-operative discomfort, and general healing.

Each material used in our office has been researched to meet bio-compatibility. Sensitivity testing for dental materials may also be done. Each treatment is tailored to meet the demand of each patient so there is no ‘one principle’ for all.

When surgical procedures are required, Dr. Chow try to use biologics – the use of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) – for regeneration of bone and tissue. The use of biologics speeds up healing as well as decreases pain. We will use lasers to disinfect tooth infections and cavitations in the bone.

A new form of Biological Dentistry.
