Green Dentistry is more than just a name for our practice, it represents a firm belief that your oral health is connected to your overall health in many ways and a whole-body approach to treatment is necessary to preserve both. Dr. Nammy Patel is proud to offer our patients holistic dentistry in San Francisco, CA, in order to diagnose and treat areas of oral concern that may negatively impact your wellbeing. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Patel’s approach to your health extends beyond just dental care—she will work with you to optimize your nutrition, diet, and mental and physical wellbeing.
Having a healthy and attractive smile all starts with our holistic dentistry approach. Before starting your treatment, we consider how each aspect of your oral health can influence your overall health, and vice versa. Considering each symptom and solution as puzzle pieces to your proper health, we’re able to offer a treatment plan with a broader, more comprehensive, perspective.
Once treatment begins, we use many technologies and treatment methods that are designed to promote improved healing and a healthy structure. Our approach to gum disease care is minimally invasive due to our investment in state-of-the-art laser therapy, which requires no cutting, sutures and heals quickly. Additionally, we offer the Pinhole® Surgical Technique as a gentle approach to correcting receding gums, also without the need to cut your gums. At Green Dentistry, we frequently remove metal amalgam fillings and replace them with composite fillings that are better for your mouth and overall health. With our gentle and natural approach to comprehensive care, you can expect improved dental visits in our spa-like practice and easy recovery for a lifetime of proper health.
During any appointment, Dr. Patel and our team will work with you to create a plan to improve your lifestyle for both oral and whole-body health. By working with you to improve your nutrition and diet, we can help you cut out sugary foods or drinks that damage tooth enamel and hurt your body as well advise you on what drinks can stain your teeth, preventing you from having a brilliant white smile. Many of our patients at one time avoided the dentist out of traumatic past experiences, but once they experienced Dr. Patel’s gentle holistic dentistry approach, they now have an improved dental outlook, a more beautiful smile and a healthier lifestyle.
