The term holism comes from the Greek "totality". It defends that all our systems and their properties must be analyzed as a whole and not only through the parts that compose them.
Specifically, the holistic dentistry that we apply in America Dental is a way of understanding the dentistry from a global perspective through the patients’ teeth and mouth. We work on the oral health of the patient, without leaving the aspects of their general health and psychological aspects aside.
Even the emotions, the way of being and the patient’s behavior can have a direct relationship with oral health. Each person is unique, therefore, in America Dental, each treatment is personalized and adapted to every patient, being one of the few dental clinics in Costa Rica which develop holistic dentistry.
We work with the latest technological advances and innovation, but with a more complete vision of the disease and its causes.
There is numerous scientific evidence that demonstrates the there’s a strong relationship between oral and general health. Likewise, the global posture of the human body is related to dental occlusion.
There are some oral diseases that can be the starting point or trigger of a disease in another part of the body. There are also many systemic diseases that are expressed in different ways in the oral cavity.
In America Dental, we work integrating all dental specialties (restorative, orthodontics, implantology, periodontics, prosthesis, etc.) that work not only with each other, but with other specialties to offer our patients comprehensive care.
