Integrative Dentistry

Integrative Dentistry in Basalt & Aspen, CO

What is Integrative Dentistry?

Integrative dentistry is a holistic approach to dental care that considers how oral health affects the entire body. At Elevate Dental Wellness, our holistic dental services focus on all aspects of a patient’s health, including physical, emotional, and spiritual. Over the years, researchers have discovered several negative factors associated with dental procedures and materials that can affect your overall health. 

That’s why Dr. Steinbach has implemented integrative dentistry at our practice to help patients achieve optimal health for both their smile and entire body. We proudly run a mercury-free practice that uses biocompatible materials. Through safe techniques and advanced technology, we can practice integrative dentistry to help your well-being flourish.

The Difference Between Integrative Dentistry & Traditional Dentistry

The primary difference resides in the philosophies. Traditional dentistry focuses solely on dental health. This consists of diagnosing conditions found in the:

  • Teeth
  • Gums
  • Jaws
  • Areas of the head and neck (when affected by the mouth)

Integrative dentistry, on the other hand, treats dental problems by focusing on the patient’s whole body health. This stems from the idea that all areas of health are connected. 

Holistic approaches also utilize biocompatible, or natural, materials. Biocompatibility refers to the way substances affect your body. Before using certain materials, our team will perform biocompatibility tests. This helps to determine if the substances are compatible with your body and immune system.

Promotes Good Body Health

Many materials and procedures used in traditional dentistry focus solely on the improvement of oral health. However, many dentists are unaware of the harmful chemicals and risks they can have on overall health. 

By using a holistic approach, we’re able to connect different aspects of your oral health to your whole body to find ideal solutions that’ll enhance all areas of your well-being.

Personalized Treatment for Your Unique Needs

Each method of treatment is designed to personally fit you and your dental needs. Every patient will undergo their own treatment process, and our integrative approach helps us discover the best options for your overall health.

High-Tech, Minimally-Invasive Treatments

We don’t want our patients to experience unnecessary pain and long drawn-out procedures from traditional dental techniques. That’s why at Elevate Dental Wellness we use the latest dental technology and minimally invasive treatments to help keep your natural teeth stronger for longer and maintain a beautifully healthy smile.

Safe Healing Methods

We utilize safe dental products and healing techniques to help your teeth and gums recover more naturally. As a mercury-free practice, we’ve removed all toxic materials from our treatments and use biocompatible materials that are safe for both your mouth and body.

Fluoride-Free

Instead of using fluoride in our office, we opt for products and treatments to make our patient’s teeth stronger with fluoride alternatives. Ozone therapy can provide many more benefits than fluoride without any harmful effects.

Holistic Services

At Elevate Dental Wellness, we consider how your dental care affects your overall health. Many of our patients are unaware of the negative effects that traditional dental techniques and treatments can have on the body. Discover our holistic services and how we can treat your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is a scientifically backed approach to dentistry that utilizes ozone gas. At Elevate Dental Wellness, Dr. Steinbach offers ozone therapy to patients who are in need of bacteria removal and treatment within the mouth. Ozone therapy is a part of our holistic, total-body-health approach to dental care.

Safe Mercury Removal

Did you know that traditional amalgam (silver) fillings are composed of more than 50 percent mercury? After they’re placed, the fillings continually emit elemental mercury vapor — the most toxic form of mercury.

How does biological dentistry benefit my entire body?

As a holistic-centered practice, we provide safe, effective techniques and treatments to protect your overall physical and psychological health. All of the materials used in our office are free of mercury, fluoride, BPA, and Bis-GMA to ensure your utmost safety.

We use biocompatibility testing, natural remedies, nutritional counseling and supplement support, ozone therapy, and safe mercury removal. Many patients notice the difference our holistic approach has on their well-being and feel more rejuvenated than ever before.

What is nutritional counseling?

During your appointment, Drs. Van Gorden and Steinbach will put aside time to discuss your nutritional habits and goals. They can make recommendations for changes to your diet that can help you improve your oral health and overall well-being. This is called nutritional counseling, and our holistic dentists hope to bring comprehensive nutritional counseling to our natural dentistry practice soon.

Is fluoride actually bad for you?

Through extensive research and countless studies, we firmly believe that fluoride has numerous negative systemic health effects. In fact, fluoride is a very toxic substance that has been shown to have very little effect on tooth decay. Elevate Dental Wellness is a fluoride-free practice, ensuring your utmost safety when you trust us with your body’s entire wellness.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires all fluoride toothpaste sold in the U.S. to have a poison warning for the risks of swallowing the substance. For more information on this, we strongly encourage you to visit FluorideAlert.org.

What are the benefits of safe healing methods?

Our practice uses high-quality, safe products and healing techniques to help your teeth and gums recover more naturally and effectively. These treatment methods are completely mercury-free and non-toxic, personalized to strengthen your immune system. This allows our holistic dentists to help prolong a lifetime of complete wellness with a healthier, more beautiful smile.
