Functional Dentistry




What Is Functional Dentistry?

Functional Dentistry is an approach to dental care that completely integrates the treatment of the mouth and oral area with all of the functioning systems of the human body. Functional Dental Health identifies and treats any oral influence or stressor that may adversely impact a patient's overall health, as well as screening for, and recognizing unbalanced, dysfunctional systems of the body that may interfere with the achievement of ultimate oral health.
