Integrated Health and Dentistry is about integrating the treatment plan of each patient to make it as individual and effective as possible. At the ndu Clinic we believe that dentistry is about more than just your teeth.
If a patient arrives with a multi-factorial problem, then they need a multi-factorial solution.
As a Holistic Dentist, Dr. Stojanovic will assess the dental issues, such as:
- Heavy metal toxicity,
- Jawbone cavitations (areas of osteonecrosis or focal infection)
- Jaw joint problems
Each of these areas can have a role in body posture and the normal functioning of the bodies’ methods of detoxification.
Toxic issues in the mouth may affect the detoxification pathways in the liver and kidneys or may even affect the absorptive capacity of your digestive system and it may be necessary to take nutritional supplements.
The elimination of the dental infection may remove the source of the problem, but any lasting side effects may still remain, and the patient may also need to see a doctor, a Nutritionist or an herbalist etc, to treat the side effects of the original problem.
Similarly, your posture can be affected by your bite being in the wrong place, thus changing the muscle tension around your jaw joint, affecting your neck muscles and altering position of your spine. You will need to be treated by either a cranial osteopath, a chiropractor, a CHEK body practitioner, a physiotherapist.
It is for this reason that we bring a wide range of practitioners into the ndu Clinic, so you have the ability to easily move between treatments in a seamless way.
