All dental problems start off small. A tiny speck of plaque around the gums; a minuscule fracture on the surface of the tooth; a nearly-undetectable cavity. However, if left untreated, the problem grows over time, resulting in a much bigger problem (root canal, extraction, crown). The reactionary approach of traditional dentistry never actually gets you healthy – it only maintains the status quo – a mouth full of small problems, ready to turn into big ones at a moment’s notice. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Patient-Centered Dental Care
At Schwanekamp Dentistry, the patient is in charge – not us, not the insurance company. As your dental health coach, we are here to listen and to give you guidance based on your goals.
Holistic Dentistry Services in New York
As providers of Holistic Dentistry, we believe the mouth is not a separate compartment from the body. We must remember that the same blood that flows through your teeth and gums also travels to the rest of your body including your heart and other organs. The body functions as a whole, complete system or in a holistic manner. Thus dental disease has an impact on one’s systemic health, also the mouth can be viewed as a window to the health of the whole body! I think that better reflects what we need.

Example: Better Dental Treatment Options
Typically, when a tooth is broken, a crown is placed. Yet, most dentists know that crowns are often an overly aggressive treatment for small cracks. We want you to know that you do have a choice: new technologies in bonding, known as “Maximized Adhesive Dentistry” allow us to fix broken teeth in a less invasive way. With techniques like this, we are able to preserve the tooth structure and protect the pulp in just one visit.
As Hippocrates, the Greek physician, said “Preventing disease is preferable to waiting for disease to happen”.
