Integrated Dentistry is the term used to describe a different concept to the usual style of dentistry practiced in the average dental surgeries in Australia.
Integrated Dentistry is best described as:
a comprehensive approach to dental health, making use of the most up-to-date research and technologies working hand-in-hand with the traditional knowledge of the “alternative” approaches to health.
The Integrated approach to dentistry recognises that everything that is done to the teeth has an affect on the rest of the body in various ways. Instead of looking at the teeth as if they were independent of the rest of the body, Integrated Dentistry investigates the teeth, mouth, jaw joints, facial tissues, head and neck all as integral parts of the entire body.
