Holistic healthcare is all the rage right now—and for good reason. Alternative practices to traditional medicine aim to address full-body issues with cleaner, more conscious processes. And at My Dentist Biological Dentistry—a Mesa-based practice that specializes in effective holistic dental care—the team of experts work to customize each patient’s oral health needs through education and more integrated techniques.
The practice, which is headed by Dr. Michael Margolis—an internationally acclaimed speaker on holistic dentistry, and a passionate advocate for the use of restorative materials for dental work—offers a refreshing medical approach that sees dental health as a “balance of the physical, environment, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of an individual.”
“Biological dentistry, at its core, takes a look at what we do to the human body on a daily basis and what effects are left as a result—including understanding how brushing and flossing your teeth, as well as the different types of materials that have been put in your mouth, may also produce other health conditions,” says Dr. Margolis.
My Dentist works under the belief that teeth, and their health, play a vital role in the overall well-being of your body. Since so many of the modern materials used to address issues within the mouth have toxins of their own, biological dentistry identifies these varying sources and treats them at the root.
Oftentimes, seemingly unrelated symptoms that are affecting other areas of the body can be linked to problems originating from the mouth. While modern biological dentistry considers every procedure and material that is placed in your mouth, My Dentist also avoids the use of mercury fillings, and actively removes toxic mercury through strict protocols.
Beyond basic dental work, My Dentist also addresses Oral Electrogalvanism and the resulting electric current that can be found in the mouth and head. This sort of electrical current can interfere with the natural electrical flow of energy within the body, and can cause irritability of the nervous system.
“The one thing I tell people is, that if you have any kind of unexplained illness or sickness, and the doctors can’t figure it out, come see us. We can take a look at some of the underlying problems and try to see what the hidden causes of your disease or ailments may be,” says Dr. Margolis. My Dentist Biological Dentistry is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday by appointment. For more information or to book your next appointment, visit www.mydentistaz.com.
