Using Complementary Therapies 

Using complementary therapies is both fun and rewarding. The fun is in the diversity and team involvement. The reward is being able to view patients’ oral health in a broader perspective and being able to improve their general health management.

We can all use complementary therapies in our practice. Like anything new, we need to apply the time and energy to learn. This gives an added dimension to the postgraduate programmes we maintain to support the orthodox therapies we use every day.

Many people are concerned when questions are raised about their routines, perhaps due to fear of change. We instinctively enjoy routine and habit; it helps us feel more secure but is often the barrier to introducing new concepts to our practice. The reward for overcoming this fear can be the freedom of thought that allows us to advance.

Routine preventive care relies on basic principles. What is needed is good hygiene and a healthy diet. The same diet that protects teeth and gums, protects against heart disease and cancer. Oral hygiene is based on reducing the number of micro-organisms, not on reducing their quality, which is controlled by the body’s health balance. These same concepts used in oral hygiene apply to the whole body. The basis of holistic care relies on the natural principle of reducing the number of noxious stimuli and encouraging the body’s own health balance.

Understanding comes with knowledge and leads to an enhanced perception and greater insight. Thomas Edison once said, ‘Our journey through life, exploring knowledge and gaining experience, often leads us back to the place where we first started. When we arrive there we often find it hard to recognise it as the same place’. With knowledge and experience we view things differently..

Orthodox medicine is not complacent and is continually searching for answers. It is often unsurpassed in its ability to deal effectively with acute ailments. Yet there is a degree of disillusionment felt by many, especially those plagued with chronic conditions. Much of this shortfall may be effectively addressed by natural medicine.

Dentistry has always embraced innovation. It has contributed a lot to healthcare, from anaesthetics1 to natural medicine2. What we should be careful to avoid in dentistry, like all specialties, is the temptation to narrow our perspective. The well-being of every cell is shared and influenced by the fate of all the others. It is said that each cell is a hologram of the entire individual. By reminding ourselves of this, we can easily shift our focused concept of the oral environment to a broader concept of health and disease. The oral environment and the individual’s general environment are inseparable.
