Holistic Dentist Q & A

Why should I visit a holistic dentist?

If you’re concerned about exposure to mercury and fluoride, metal fillings, and other pharmaceutical interventions used in standard dental care, Mint Dental’s holistic approach is for you. Dr. Peri uses biocompatible, non-toxic restorative materials and promotes optimal head, neck, teeth, and jaw structural relationships.

Dr. Peri offers all-natural interventions to help heal your tooth root before suggesting an invasive approach. She uses the least invasive, least traumatic, and least toxic means of diagnosis and treatment. She works to use your body’s own natural abilities of self-healing and regeneration.

As a holistic dentist, Dr. Peri may use nutritional and preventive therapies to promote your good oral health and overall well-being.

Bringing your children to a holistic dentist gives their oral health a good, positive start and prevents early exposure to possibly toxic compounds, such as metals and fluoride. Because Dr. Peri uses minimally invasive procedures, you don’t have to worry about having a lot of painful dental work.

Dr. Peri is also a specialist in treating childhood sleep disorders, which can sometimes be linked to treatable breathing issues. 

What is SDF fluoride treatment?

Silver diamine fluoride, or SDF, is a liquid substance used to help prevent cavities in your teeth. It contains silver, which helps kill bacteria, water, and ammonia to help make the concentration of the solution maximally effective. 

SDF is considered a medical treatment but carries the same level of risks as other benign medical treatments, such as over-the-counter pregnancy tests.

What is the Healthy Start program?

 Disordered breathing in children is a serious problem that can interrupt sleep quality and cause issues such as:

  • Tooth grinding
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Bed wetting
  • Snoring
  • Mouth breathing
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Night terrors

Healthy Start is a program designed to help identify the symptoms of sleep disorders. As a dentist trained in the program, Dr. Peri can help identify the underlying root cause and create a treatment plan that both cures the breathing disorders and corrects the orthodontic condition.
