Lifetime Holistic Dental offers an alternative to conventional dentistry, but why should you and your family opt for it? Well first, let’s take a look at some of the problems with conventional dentistry.

Where Conventional Dentistry Is Failing

Traditional forms of dentistry tend to focus solely on the teeth and gums, without any thought for how the treatment they provide is affecting overall health. For example, there are still dental practices that use amalgam fillings to address cavities. Not only are these filling visible and unsightly, but they are also poisonous as they contain mercury.

They also don’t ask the essential questions about your lifestyle, and how that affects your health. For example:

  • Are you using toothpaste and floss that is safe, and is your technique protecting your teeth and gums?
  • Are they monitoring the health of your gums and ensuring you’re not losing jaw bone density?
  • Are your breathing and swallowing being affected by an oral issue?
  • Are your teeth making your face look it’s best, and are your children’s teeth and jaws developing as they should?

These are all essential questions, and too often they are being left unanswered.

So, How Does Lifetime Holistic Dental Help?

We view your teeth and gums as just one part of a much bigger picture. As a holistic dentist, we look at your health in its entirety to ensure we can prevent disease in your mouth and in the rest of your body. We don’t just treat your teeth and gums, we manage everything, and that includes your sense of self. We want you to look and feel great, so you make a great first impression every time.

We genuinely care about our patients. We’re not about filling up our appointment book and getting people in and out as fast as possible, we want to give you the information and tools you need to take control of our dental health and set yourself up with a healthy smile for life.

This caring approach is borne out of a desire to give you complete health, and to do that we know we have to take care of the little details. That means using biocompatible materials instead of toxic ones and trying to find non-invasive options wherever possible.

Perhaps most importantly, we understand that a visit to the dentist can be a challenge for some of our patients. Phobias, fears and anxieties should never be ignored. They are real, and we respect them. That’s why we’ve invested in a range of techniques, such as needle-free pain relief and sleep dentistry, that help fearful patients get through their treatment.

We also take it upon ourselves to offer the best holistic dental treatment we can. We are continuously researching, and attending conferences, workshops and seminars, so our patients benefit from the latest techniques and research.

The mouth really is a mirror to your overall health. Oral health leads to a healthier heart, gut, nose ears and even reproduction system. Yes, women with healthy teeth and gums do have healthier babies!

This inextricable link is why we look so closely at the way our treatments affect your body. We don’t want to introduce toxic elements into your body when there are far safer alternatives. We check the chemicals in everything we use, and make our own polishing paste instead of relying on the chemical-laden premade polishing paste.

We look at every detail, so you can enjoy the safest possible dental treatment and rest easy in knowing that nothing that we’re doing will affect your overall health.

Still Not Convinced?

If a caring, holistic approach isn’t convincing enough, then you’ll love our location. Just five kilometres south-east of the CBD on South Yarra’s iconic High St, the people of South Yarra, Prahran, Windsor, Armadale, St Kilda and even Richmond will have no trouble reaching us by car or public transport.

You’ll also love the fact that your first visit begins with a 60-minute one-on-one consult. This helps us to determine the types of treatment that will work best for your lifestyle and your budget. Everything is centred around you and your needs.

Worried About Costs?

We always provide a written estimate for your treatment plans, and our treatments are covered by a range of private health insurances, including:

  • BUPA
  • Medibank
  • HCF
  • Frank

Your children’s treatments may also be covered by Medicare, as part of the Teen’s Dental Plan we offer at Lifetime Holistic Dental.

So, if you want dental care that goes far beyond your teeth and gums, you need to visit Lifetime Holistic Dental. Our methods give you a healthy, gleaming smile for life and ensure the rest of your health is taken care of as well.

We genuinely care about you, and your health and that’s what you deserve from a dentist.
