|Holistic Dentistry focuses on health and wellness as well as repair of disease. Although Dr. Wolley offers a full range of modern scientific treatment for dental and periodontal procedures, his approach to dental care is one that relates the health of the mouth to the health and well being of the whole person. Dr. Wolley believes that the role of a dentist is more than just repair of dental disease and resolution of periodontal problems. His innovative approach combines science and natural healing.
Dr Wolley combines 21st century scientific state-of-the-art dentistry with concepts from the world’s great traditions of natural healing.
* Homeopathy – Homeopathic medicines don’t replace good dental care but complement it. Homeopathic medicine offers solutions for treating the fear and anxiety in anticipation of a dental visit, treatment for dental toothaches, neuralgic pain, pain after tooth extraction, bleeding after traumatic injury, injuries to the gum tissue, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems and salivary gland problems.
* Herbal Therapy – Medicinal plants have been used in Eastern medicine for centuries. Herbs are used to cleanse the blood, warm and stimulate the body, increase surface circulation, increase elimination of wastes, reduce inflammation and calm and sooth irritation. Herbs can be used to stop the pain of toothache and, as wraps, to treat sore tense muscles such as those in the shoulders, back or jaw when temporomandibular joint problems are present.
* Tooth colored, bio-compatible restorations – Until recently, dental patients had no choice about the way the appearance of the restorations in their back teeth. Dr. Wolley can replace those un-esthetic fillings with resin or porcelain restorations bonded to your teeth making them stronger and life-like in appearance. Dr. Wolley is cautious when removing conventional restorations and always uses a dental dam to isolate the teeth and protect you from inhaling or ingesting pieces of the old filling. Nutritional supplementation is also offered during amalgam removal to enhance your body’s immune response.
* “Bio-compatibility Testing of Dental Materials” – In modern society, we come in contact with many substances everyday in the food we eat, the products we use, and the treatments we receive. A substance causing little or no reaction in one person can cause health problems for another, especially a person with other health concerns. Using Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing provides information about a person’s individual sensitivities so that the dental materials used will be the ones least likely to cause problems.
