Trust Family Dental on Broadway with all of your dentistry needs. We promise to deliver a nice and healthy smile with an assurance that holistic, or natural, dentistry will benefit your overall health.
A holistic dentist will focus on your whole body or general health in addition to dental health and the treatment of oral disease; blending modern dentistry and natural healing methods.
Your lifestyle, emotions, and behaviour may have a direct relationship with your oral health so it's logical to believe that you may respond the same as others to the identical stimuli. That's why your natural treatments will be unique to your needs, with personalized attention to take care of you according to your particular needs.
Does holistic or natural dental care cost more?
The cost for holistic dental care is similar to average dentists for cleaning and office visits, however you need to keep in mind that mercury is inexpensive so the composites used for fillings tend to cost more.
And as mentioned earlier, the cost of repairing a smile after poor oral health care will always remain the same. By maintaining one’s oral health, you can avoid the development of unwanted conditions such as cavities, periodontal disease, and even natural tooth loss, which in turn reduces visits and can actually reduce overall cost.

What are some of the benefits of holistic or natural dental care?
Dr. Ranu isn't your typical dentist. Holistic dentists focus on your whole health and its connection with your oral health rather than using fast fixes. Holistic dentists boost health and wellness rather than the treatment of diseases. This leads to many benefits including:
Use of Safe, Healthy Materials
Many materials that have been used by your average dentists over the years are often bad for your health. Silver amalgam fillings for example, contain 50 percent mercury, one of the most toxic substances around. Family Dental on Broadway uses alternative solutions that take your health and wellness into consideration.
Fluoride treatments are not healthy for your teeth either. While long believed to cure cavities, recent research shows that fluoride may actually cause health problems such as: Brain damage, arthritis, dementia, bone cancer, muscle disorders, and more. Family Dental on Broadway Care only use materials that are free of toxins and adopt treatments that won't harm your health.
Treating the Body as a Whole
Instead of just focusing on the smile, as a holistic dental practice Family Dental on Broadway also considers how everything done to the mouth will affect your overall body. Holistic dentists are well-versed in the oral systemic connection, understanding how the bacteria and problems within the mouth can carry through the bloodstream and into the rest of the body, increasing one's risk for many medical conditions.
When caring for a diabetic patient for example, Family Dental on Broadway will help that patient understand how he or she can manage blood sugar levels best by following best practices for oral hygiene care and a healthy program of diet and exercise.
Using natural or holistic techniques, Family Dental on Broadway can help relieve disorders like chronic fatigue, sinusitis, heart burn, irritable bowel, mood disorders and poor concentration.
