You’re probably looking for a holistic dentist in Baton Rouge because oral health is a high priority for you, and you recognize how closely it’s related to your overall health. Dr. Brooksher focuses on preventive care and uses dental materials that promote good health.
His Approach to Holistic Dentistry
Dr. Brooksher’s approach to holistic dentistry includes preventive care, patient education, and continuing education.
- Preventive care – Bacteria from tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease can travel to other parts of your body and affect your overall health. We use intraoral cameras to closely examine your teeth and oral cavities for early detection and accurate diagnosis of oral health issues.
- Patient education – We explain how you can practice good oral hygiene at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We also explain how your oral health is affected by nutrition, certain lifestyle choices, and certain medical conditions and prescription medications.
- Continuing education – Dr. Brooksher regularly participates in continuing education, including training courses and study clubs—more than four times the annual requirement for the state of Louisiana. He stays current with advances in dental techniques and technology to help you maintain good oral health.
Dr. Brooksher has been a mercury-free dentist for more than 20 years. He only uses composite fillings, which are both mercury free and metal free. Unlike amalgam fillings that expand, separate from teeth, and weaken them, composite fillings bond to your teeth and strengthen them. If you have amalgam fillings that you want replaced with composite, Dr. Brooksher will minimize your exposure to mercury vapor by isolating the affected teeth as the fillings are removed.
Metal-Free Ceramic Crowns
Ceramic restorations are metal free, yet durable. Ceramic crowns mimic the color, translucency, and gloss of natural teeth. Your crowns will be healthy for your teeth and beautiful.
Allergies or Sensitivities?
Let us know if you have allergies or sensitivities to any chemicals, materials, or other substances, and we will accommodate you.
