Fishers, IN (PRWEB) May 11, 2015
Dr. E. Dale Behner of Dental Care Today, PC, is pleased to announce that he offers a variety of holistic dentistry options in Fishers, IN. This approach is about whole-body wellness through the use of materials and medications that are natural, when feasible, that support healthy living. One example of a holistic approach is to use mercury free fillings, which avoid the dangers associated with continual contact of a material known to cause serious health problems. Dr. Behner works with each patient individually, so that he or she can create a dental care plan that is best suited to his or her unique needs.
Historically, dental professionals frequently treated patients with little regard to the effects of those treatments and how those procedures would ultimately affect their bodies. The mouth was commonly considered separate from other health concerns. Today, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that proves that any health concerns in the mouth also affect the entire body. In the course of holistic dentistry treatment in Fishers, IN, Dr. Behner discusses practices that promote good health as the first step in preventing oral disease. Lifestyle, diet, reduced stress, exercise, nutrition and sleep are more important for optimal oral health than many realize, alongside consistent brushing and flossing.
Unfortunately, even optimal preventative practices generally cannot prevent all problems before they occur. When a dental disease does exist, Dr. Behner uses holistic dentistry in Fishers, IN, to treat the disease in the most beneficial way possible. He uses digital x-rays because they allow him to decrease the required dose of radiation during treatment. Dr. Behner also uses medications that are alcohol free and contain natural plant extracts. He will utilize these natural methods before he turns to the harsher chemicals found in many western medications. Mercury free fillings are an important part of holistic care because mercury is known to cause serious health problems. In the place of Mercury, he uses porcelain, composite resin or gold. Dr. Behner even has a special cavity-preventing paste that he uses in the place of traditional fluoride varnishes.
Anyone who wants more information about mercury free fillings and other holistic dental procedures is requested to visit Dr. Behner’s website, where he provides patient educational materials. He also invites interested patients to call or stop by his office for one-on-one help.
