Holistic Dentistry

If you're looking for a dentist, you want someone who incorporates a full-body approach and uses safe, natural materials.

Holistic dentistry focuses not just on your teeth and oral health, but on how it affects the rest of your body, as well.

Find out why patients trust Dr. Max Teja, DDS, at our dental practice in San Angelo, TX, with their smiles...

What Is Holistic Dentistry?

When you visit the dentist, you'll likely receive a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw. If you have an issue such as needing a root canal or are dealing with gum disease symptoms, treatment is provided to improve your oral health and hopefully stop the symptoms from reoccurring in the future.

Holistic dentistry takes it a step further by finding how your oral health may be impacting your overall health. We try to uncover the underlying issue instead of just the symptoms. What kind of lifestyle do you lead? How do you sleep? Could you possibly have inflammation or be affected by toxic materials in your dental fillings?

By taking a full-body approach to dentistry, we help patients experience better health overall. Untreated dental issues can cause many medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression. By being proactive and leaving no stone untouched, our team in San Angelo can help you achieve greater well-being.

The Extraordinary Benefits of Holistic Dentistry

Comprehensive Approach

Holistic dentistry looks a bit different for every patient. After examining your teeth and learning about your lifestyle, Dr. Teja may suggest changing your diet, addressing neck or jaw pain, or reducing your stress, as this can all affect your health. These are suggestions not found in the traditional dentist's office.

No Harmful Materials

Mercury is often used in dental restorations, but extensive research has proven how harmful it can be to your body. Our holistic dentist only uses non-toxic and biocompatible materials in our fillings, crowns, and other restorations to ensure the healthiest mouth possible.

High Tech Equipment

Traditional x-rays emit high levels of radiation and expose patients to unnecessary risks. Our San Angelo office in Texas uses the safest and most efficient dentistry technology to ensure a seamless visit. For example, we can create custom dental crowns in just one appointment.

Fluoride-Free Treatments 

In large doses, fluoride can have adverse effects on the body. Our holistic dentist uses fluoride-free treatments to boost your oral health while reducing potential danger. We can also recommend natural toothpaste and mouthwash you can safely use at home without worry.

Say Goodbye to Harmful Amalgam Fillings Our Dentist Is SMART Certified 

If you've ever had a cavity in your tooth, you probably received a dental filling to treat it. If you received a silver amalgam filling, our holistic dentist can help safely remove and replace it with a tooth-colored resin filling.

Amalgam fillings expose patients to mercury vapors which can be detrimental to their health. Dr. Max Teja, DDS, is SMART certified and has received rigorous dentistry training to remove amalgam fillings at our San Angelo practice.

I had a really good experience at Dr. Teja's office, he and his staff are amazing. I went there specifically to get the Mercury fillings removed because I wasn't sure if they were all removed by my previous dentist. Dr. Teja is sincere and makes you feel comfortable during this type of difficult procedure. Also, he is SMART certified which is so important when it comes to removes Mercury fillings in a safe way. I will recommend Dr. Teja to anyone in a heartbeat

If a patient undergoes a tooth extraction or other oral surgery, platelet rich fibrin (PRF) helps accelerate the healing process by using the patient's own blood. PRP reduces inflammation in the area and also helps the jawbone to regenerate. Dr. Teja is the only dentist in the San Angelo area that provides this revolutionary treatment.
