Holistic Dental Health in New York NY

At Herald Square Dental NYC, our goal is that you not only look your best but also feel great about yourself. We have found that the best dental outcomes result when we treat the whole person with a holistic approach.

What is a holistic approach?

As your top New York dentists, we believe dental treatments and oral care are an integral part of your body and your overall health, and we recognize that the way you look and feel about your oral health can have a major influence on other aspects of your body and wellbeing. The primary aim of our care is to resolve your dental issues while working in harmony with the rest of your body. A key component in our holistic care is the way in which we take a close look at each individual patient’s medical and family history, making sure that no stone is left unturned. In that way, we are aware of potential contributing factors with regard to each person’s oral health and can then advise and propose treatment accordingly.

Why choose holistic dentistry as your dental option?

Your body is natural, and we think your dental treatments should be too. Combining the best of modern science, knowledge, education, and credentials with scientifically proven natural care for your symptoms, we want to educate you and present you with an option that will affect your entire wellness. We recognize that there are well-documented systemic links between your oral health and other systemic diseases, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Cancer

Does caring for our teeth affect the rest of our wellbeing?

One of the best ways to help prevent serious health problems is to have excellent oral health. Your oral health affects your overall health.

If you allow the bacteria to remain in your mouth unchecked, it can lead to gum disease and inflammation, causing your immune system to weaken and ignore other parts of your body. And the secret to having good oral health is to practice good oral hygiene and visit our dental office regularly. Your goal should be teeth free of cavities and disease and gums that don’t bleed when you floss and brush. Use those as an indication of your overall health. Our dentists specialize in a holistic approach to oral care which means we consider your whole-body health as we care for your teeth and gums. We understand the deep connection between good oral health and its positive effect on digestion, the heart and circulatory system, and especially the immune system.

How to Keep Yourself and Your Teeth Healthy

Now more than ever, our dental health and whole-body health are directly impacting our emotional and mental health. How can we, in the midst of the seemingly endless COVID-19 pandemic, take care of our mental

health? How can we stay connected with our people? How can we foster habits that promote a healthy body? Consider choosing a few of the following activities to incorporate into your daily routines.

  • Online gym classes through apps, such as Orangetheory, Yoga-Go
