At The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine, we believe in involving the whole body in the process of healing and recovering. As a part of our practice, our dentist, Dr. Glenn A. MacFarlane, DMD, makes use of various essential oils the help your body repair and improve your smile. Essential oils contain natural ingredients that gently assist your body in healing from a procedure, overcoming an illness or injury and in remaining healthy. In many cases essential oils may be used in the same way as pharmaceuticals to help your body fight infections and bacteria, reduce inflammation and mitigate other problems. While many people can extol the benefits of oil pulling, Dr. MacFarlane can explain how essential oils can be used in other ways, often in different combinations to produce oral health benefits. There are many varieties of essential oils available from a number of different sources. However, before you begin to use any of them as part of your oral hygiene routine, we ask that you make an appointment with Dr. MacFarlane to discuss your oral health, your particular needs, and how essential oils can be best employed in your home health or treatment regimen.
