We’ve had so many people see that our Dr. Mobasser refers to himself as a “holistic dentist in Beverly Hills” and ask: “what is a holistic dentist?” It means that he sees dental care as part of overall health. A person is more than just what’s going on in their mouth. Your dental care can be affected by the rest of your body. A holistic dentist like Dr. Mobasser treats the entire person, not just their mouth. Through doing so, he’s able to make sure that your teeth and mouth are their healthiest. By that same token, it helps to improve your overall general health, too. In this blog, we’ll go over some of the holistic actions Dr. Mobasser takes as well as some advice that’s informed by his expertise and experience.
Dr. Mobasser: Holistic Dentist in Beverly Hills
“Holistic dentistry” is referred to by many names that all mean the same thing. For example, you may have also heard of it referred to as “biological dentistry” or even “bio compatible” dentistry. Those names reinforce exactly what holistic dentistry is: it treats the entire biological being of a person, not just their mouth. Everyone is more than just their set of teeth and jaws. Our health, indeed even our oral health, is dependent upon so many more factors than just the ones in our mouths. Through holistic dentistry, Dr. Mobasser seeks to improve the entire person.
What Holistic Dentistry Does
Dr. Mobasser is a holistic dentist for a variety of reasons. One of the main guiding principles of holistic dentistry, for example, holds that dentistry is responsible for helping the body to avoid the destructive effects of dental diseases and infections. The reason for that is simple: those diseases and infections don’t just stay in the mouth. They don’t take over the mouth and then remain content to cause problems from there. Indeed, they can spread throughout the body, incurring more and more damage as they go. That’s the kind of scenario that Dr. Mobasser’s holistic dentistry is there to safeguard against it.
Holistic Dental methods
The infections in the above paragraph can come from a wide variety of factors. One significant one that Dr. Mobasser goes to great lengths to stop is through large holes in the mouth or “cavitations.” These can be left by tooth extraction or through other methods. When that’s necessary and unavoidable, Dr. Mobasser works swiftly to fill those holes and not leave any way for infection to plague the mouth. By that same token, he refuses to use “amalgam” in his dentistry. It has a reputation for toxicity, well-earned, that Dr. Mobasser does not want to bring into a client’s mouth.
Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body
If anything sums up the main ethos of holistic dentistry, perhaps it’s the phrase: “the health of the mouth and the health of the body can’t be separated.” You can’t have one without the other. If your mouth is suffering, then your body will too. By that same token, if you have problems with your body, it will be significantly difficult to appreciate a healthy mouth. That’s why Dr. Mobasser is so adamant about recommending patients eat nutrient-dense foods. These foods can help you to live a healthier lifestyle. When your body is healthier, your teeth almost invariably will be in turn. By taking care of your overall health, your overall quality of life will improve and maintain a high level of satisfaction.
Dr. Mobasser, whenever possible, believes in approaching problems through the most natural, organic approach. That means applying time-tested, proven methods with a track record of success in every facet of his cosmetic dentistry. By that same token, Dr. Mobasser understands how important new technology is to the field of dentistry. He knows that modern day breakthroughs make operations and procedures possible that were mere science fiction just a few years ago. So, Dr. Mobasser aims for the best of both worlds: he combines the most naturalistic approach possible with the most cutting-edge, state of the art technology and procedures. Through this, he is able to provide patients with customized, individualized and optimal results.
Everyone has different problems with their mouth and teeth. For some, the concern may be a gap in their teeth. For others, it may be a lingering bad breath that won’t go away no matter what they do. These are just a few of the problems that Dr. Mobasser is trained to handle. He’s helped so many people over the years to have the teeth and mouth that they’ve always wanted. He may be a “celebrity dentist,” but he sure doesn’t work exclusively with celebrities.
