No one part of the body functions independently of the others. This philosophy drives the practice of holistic dentistry at Art of Dentistry in holistic dentistryMilwaukee, WI. Dr. Paul Scholl and his dedicated team of professionals care for your oral health with an eye toward how it affects your overall health. So their list of services is more than just a list. It offers complete preventive, restorative and cosmetic treatments that keep your smile shining and functional and the rest of you completely well, too.


Prevent problems


The American Dental Association says to brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled brush. Additionally, this dental organization advocates once a day flossing. Both practices remove harmful plaque, prevent tartar and ward off tooth decay and gum disease. Combined with a healthy, low sugar diet, and professional cleanings and check-ups at Art of Dentistry. diligent oral hygiene protects your mouth and systemic health from the effects of diabetes, oral cancer and more.


Additionally, your Milwaukee holistic dentist uses state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques and imaging, such as digital X-rays and biocompatible materials (as opposed to amalgam fillings) to ensure your teeth and gums receive the most beneficial care.


Restore problems


If dental issues occur, Dr. Scholl uses the least invasive restorations possible. He replaces amalgam fillings with tooth-colored materials which are safe, natural-looking and durable. He strives to avoid extractions with the finest crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, and root canal therapy. He also evaluates patients for sleep apnea and TMJ/TMD to avoid the deleterious affects of dental-related sleep disorders and problems such as migraines, ear pain and more that come with poorly functioning jaw joints.


Cosmetic options


You know you feel better about yourself--in other words, have more self-confidence whatever the situation--when you smile, laugh and speak in public without worrying about your appearance. So cosmetics are a natural part of holistic dentistry in Milwaukee.


For your best smile, Dr. Scholl delivers stain-resistant composite veneers. Made of a biocompatible resin, these dental laminates bond to the front of flawed, but healthy, teeth without any enamel reduction. He also offers safe in-office and at-home teeth whitening for amazingly brighter tooth color, and his dental bonding repairs small defects painlessly and quickly in just about an hour.


Finally, having your teeth work harmoniously may require orthodontic treatment. Combining treatments for better aesthetics and properly functioning bites, traditional braces and clear aligners move teeth into better positions, creating durable smiles. When you see your holistic dentist, ask him how your individualized treatment plan may include quality cosmetic services.
