Integrative Dentistry in Basalt & Aspen, CO

Total Body Wellness

Your oral wellness doesn’t exist separate from the body, so neither should your dental care. When oral problems occur they can have detrimental effects on the rest of the body, and vice versa.

Your body has many complex, interconnected systems that work together so it can function properly. When one thing is off, it can impact the entire body. At Elevate Dental Wellness, while providing for your dental needs, we do so with your total wellness in mind. 

That’s why Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach offer integrative dentistry so that you never have to worry about sacrificing the wellness of the rest of your body while seeking treatment for your dental issues.

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 factors associated with traditional dental procedures and materials that can negatively affect your overall health. 

That’s why Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach have implemented integrative dentistry at our practice to help patients achieve optimal health for both their smile and their 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.

How Integrative Dentistry Differs From 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, and jaw as well as 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. 

At Elevate Dental Wellness, we believe integrative dentistry is the best way to provide care for our patients because you are more than just your mouth—your wellness extends to your entire being and we want to protect that. 

Holistic approaches also utilize biocompatible 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.

Benefits of Integrative Dentistry

As a holistic dental office, we want to ensure our patients experience all the advantages of a beautiful smile without harming their overall health. We understand that dental problems don’t only affect the mouth, rather, they have the potential to affect the rest of the body as well. This means our treatments are designed to work in harmony with your body.

Personalized Treatment For Total Body Health

Many materials and procedures used in traditional dentistry focus solely on the improvement of oral health. However, many dentists are unaware of how harmful certain chemicals and materials can be to your overall health. By using a holistic approach, we’re able to connect different aspects of your oral health to your whole body and find ideal solutions that’ll enhance all areas of your well-being.

This approach is one of the many reasons we provide biocompatibility testing so that Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach can ensure any recommended treatments will work for your body specifically. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to dental care. 

Each treatment method is designed to personally fit you, your lifestyle, and your dental needs. Every patient will undergo their own unique treatment process and our integrative approach helps us discover the best options for your overall health. This includes taking a deep look at how your lifestyle and nutritional needs impact your oral health.

High-Tech, Minimally-Invasive Treatments

We don’t want our patients to experience unnecessary pain and long, drawn-out procedures like those so commonly practiced in traditional dentistry. 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.

Toxin-Free, Safe Healing Methods

We utilize safe dental products and healing techniques to help your teeth and gums recover more naturally. We understand that what goes into your mouth can impact your whole body, which is why we are committed to a toxin-free environment. 

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. 

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.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is a scientifically-backed approach to dentistry that utilizes ozone gas. At Elevate Dental Wellness, Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach offer 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
Safe Mercury Removal

Did you know that traditional amalgam (silver) fillings are composed of nearly 50 percent mercury? After they’re placed, the fillings continually emit elemental mercury vapor — the most toxic form of mercury. For patients looking to live more holistically, we can safely remove your mercury-filled filling. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we follow SMART protocol so you can rest assured your amalgam fillings will be removed safely.

How does integrative 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 quickly 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, Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. 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 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, toxin-free, and 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.
