- Treat the whole body
- Focus on prevention
Re-active VS Pro-active Dentistry
Traditional dentistry is about repairing damage. Repair is a reactive process. Why not be proactive instead and stop infections by removing bacteria before damage occurs?
We have coined the term Dental Wellness to mean, “dentistry with naturopathic principles.” A large part of Dental Wellness involves testing for infections found in the mouth and gums. We treat these infections before they can cause irreversible damage, like cavities or gum disease. There’s no way to improve on what nature gave you.
We consider “drilling” a form of amputation; once that tooth structure is removed, it is gone forever. At Live Well Dental Center, we invest in technology and techniques to preserve tooth structure.
Our high tech office specializes in “Pre-Drill” options: Ozone, air abrasion, and DIAGNOdent are high tech methods we use to diagnose and treat infections before the need for numbing and drilling.
