How it is practiced depends on the individual practitioners understanding, knowledge, skill and personal beliefs and what each patient chooses to receive.
This is the core message of BD - BIOLOGICAL DENTISTRY that each practitioner will build on, in order to determine how they deliver care to their patients.
BD blends current and developing scientific understanding and information about dental and general health care with an alternative and holistic approach to health and healing.
BD is a truly INTEGRATIVE approach to whole body health care.
BD promotes using modern equipment, techniques and materials, integrating it with holistic observations and healing principles to deliver dental care that enhances dental and whole body health.
BD is directed at reducing dental induced inflammation, which also has a direct effect on whole body inflammation. This inflammation is acknowledged as the main cause for the increase in chronic systemic ill health we see in our modern world.
BD is subdivided into 4 main areas of practice. For each practitioner and patient, there will always be a compromise between these different practices. However, primarily, there will always be a focus towards the overall health of the individual patient.
BD promotes the use of biologically safe inert dental materials, and, if possible, the removal of inflammatory inducing metals and other materials that are not health promoting. BD has a method to show how to test each individual to check their compatibility with dental materials.
The focus for BD, is to work towards the elimination of all infections in the gums, teeth and jaws - all of which are recognised to have far reaching negative systemic health effects.
BD sees the role in the development and maintenance of structural integrity between individual teeth, as well as the teeth, mouth, and jaws to allow for better dental health alignment, breathing, swallowing and whole body alignment for better general and whole body health.
4. HEALING MODALITIES
BD recommends the use of safe, none invasive healing and health restoring products and techniques to reduce dental induced inflammation.
