Holistic dentistryIn honor of all of the candy-filled trick-or-treating planned for this month, I’d like to take a moment to focus on a related subject  — holistic dentistry.

Similar to chiropractic, optimal oral health requires regular maintenance.

There are opportunities to make smarter choices regarding your oral health.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

– Choose brands that make fluoride-free toothpaste or organic mouthwash for daily use. This helps lower the amount of chemical exposure for the entire family and can easily be found at health food stores or Whole Foods.

– Find a holistic dentist who avoids toxic silver fillings and takes safety precautions when removing amalgams. Even a small amount of mercury in your system can be a potent neurotoxin.

I utilize holistic dentist Dr. Winick of Dentistry for Health NY.

– Know that you have the right to refuse an x-ray!
