A Holistic Dentistry Approach
Dr David Norcross believes in a holistic approach to dentistry. He believes that it is important to look at the overall health and wellbeing of a patient and not just the teeth.
As part of your dental implant treatment it is necessary to do a thorough assessment of your overall health before deciding on a treatment plan.
The mouth is the pathway by which nutrition enters our body. It is also the beginning of the digestive process. The loss of teeth can have a negative impact on nutrition and overall health.
It is also necessary to evaluate why the tooth was lost and advise the patient on any changes they may need to make to their diet or oral hygiene routine to prevent the loss of further teeth.
