No one part of the body functions without impacting the others. In other words, your heart health influences how well your brain functions. The same applies to your oral health. That’s why Dr. Ellis Ramsey, Dallas holistic dentist, works to prevent, diagnose and treat conditions of the teeth and gums so your entire well-being flourishes.
The holistic philosophy
Dr. Ellis L. Ramsey and his dedicated team treat each patient who walks through their doors as an individual with personal health needs and aesthetic goals for their smiles. In fact, they treat their patients just as they would members of their own families.
So, exams are comprehensive and treatment plans highly personalized. While Dr. Ramsey strictly adheres to quality dental practice standards, he applies those standards according to patient need.
Further, as a member of the International Association of Mercury-free Dentists, Dr. Ramsey is devoted to optimizing dental health without doing harm to other body systems. In other words, to have healthy teeth and gums, patients need treatments that aren’t toxic, but rather, natural and curative and truly therapeutic and rejuvenating.
Holistic preventive dentistry
Holistic dentistry begins at home. Dr. Ramsey, in accordance with American Dental Association guidelines, recommends twice daily brushing and once a day flossing to eliminate harmful bacteria contained in plaque and tartar. Not only do bacteria create decay, gum disease and its inflammation, these microorganisms also spread throughout the body, contributing to major systemic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and even dementia.
Following up with 6-month cleanings and exams builds on the foundation of good home care. Each exam is comprehensive and checks for:
- Cavities via visual inspection and intraoral cameras
- Gum disease, with periodontal probing, or measure of gum pockets
- TMJ dysfunction
- How well teeth bite together
- Overall condition of teeth and restorations (inspecting for cracks, chips)
Holistic restorative dentistry
Your Dallas holistic dentist would like all his patients to have pristinely perfect teeth. When this is not possible, however, he offers restorations that benefit tooth and gum health and smile aesthetics, too. Materials are 100 percent free of mercury and BPA. Imaging techniques, such as x-rays are digital, delivering 90 percent less radiation than traditional methods. Plus, digital imaging is instantly viewable, transferrable and generating no environmentally wasteful paper trail.
Dr. Ramsey’s restorations include:
- Dental implants
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays
- Partial and full dentures
Regarding dental fillings, Dr. Ramsey only places mercury-free and metal-free fillings. In fact, some patients desire to have old amalgam fillings replaced by safe, natural-looking composite resin. Dr. Ramsey uses special removal protocol for taking metal fillings out and replacing them with white bonded materials. The removal process is safe for patient and dental staff alike.
Live a life of wellness
