Foreign materials in the field of dentistry, orthopedics or surgery as well as drug and hormone replacement therapies are virtually already a matter of course – that is, they have become quite
normal. And yet too easily we forget that every intervention into our organism can also have effects on the entire body. Accordingly, diseased teeth or intolerances to materials can be causes for
chronic diseases, allergies or other medical problems.
The focus for the environmental dental specialist is, therefore, on the comprehensive dental treatment of chronically ill patients as well as preventative treatment concepts for healthy patients.
The aim is to prevent chronic inflammatory diseases – also those distant from the oral cavity – or alleviate already existing illnesses.
Environmental dentistry takes the relationship between the teeth and the body into account and in the treatment, helps by working together with other therapists (doctors, orthopedic specialists,
dental technicians, osteopaths, physical therapists/physiotherapists etc.).
