D4HH blends current and developing scientific understanding and information about dental and general health care with an alternative and holistic approach to health and healing.
D4HH is part of a team approach to 21st century health care. It has a role towards an INTEGRATIVE approach to whole body health care.
How it is practiced depends on the individual practitioners understanding, knowledge, skill and personal beliefs and as importantly what each patient understands and chooses to receive.
D4HH promotes using modern equipment, techniques and materials, integrating it with holistic observations and healing principles to deliver dental care that enhances dental and whole body health.
D4HH is a dental orinetated healing modality. It primarily aims to restore health and balance (hormesis) by harmonising form and function and the oral cavity head neck and shoulders as part of the whole body.
Its secondary aim is the elimination of dental diseases and toxic dental care influences and thereby reducing dental induced inflammation. This will have a direct effect on whole body inflammation which is acknowledged as one of the main causes for the increase in chronic systemic ill health that we see in our modern world.
D4HH is suD4HHivided into 4 main areas of practice. For each practitioner and patient, there will always be a compromise between these different practices which is most benificial to that individulal There will always be a focus towards the overall health of the individual patient.
D4HH promotes the use of as biologically safe, inert dental materials. If possible, the removal of inflammatory inducing metals and other materials that are not health promoting. D4HH has several methods to show how to test each individual to help them choose compatibility with dental materials.
The focus for D4HH, is to work towards the elimination of all infections in the gums, teeth and jaws - all of which are recognised to have far reaching negative systemic health effects.
D4HH sees the role in the development and maintenance of structural integrity between individual teeth, as well as the teeth, mouth, and jaws to allow for better dental health alignment, breathing, swallowing and whole body alignment for better general and whole body health.
