About ABQ Wholistic Dentistry of Albuquerque
Holistic, Personalized Dentistry That Puts Your Needs First
At ABQ Wholistic Dentistry, we understand how much a healthy, strong smile can positively influence one’s life and self-image over the years. That’s why Dr. Shamaine Giron goes out of her way to help patients discover the treatment plans that best fit the priorities and goals they have in mind, whether they’re seeking to finally replace dark-colored fillings with metal-free alternatives or recreate durable, attractive teeth after a serious injury. The care we provide is comfortable, attentive, and anything but typical – so why not experience it for yourself? Contact us today in Albuquerque, NM to schedule an initial consultation, or keep reading below if you’d like to learn more about what sets us apart.
What is Wholistic Dentistry?
The word “holistic” is actually a natural evolution of the word “wholistic,” which refers to a whole body, or taking an entire person (including the mind, physical body, and spirit) into consideration. Dr. Giron believes that this approach is important to dental care in particular, as the mouth is a gateway to the rest of the body – in fact, there is dedicated research that demonstrates the clear connections between common oral health problems (such as periodontal disease) and systemic conditions like heart attacks, strokes, and even Alzheimer’s.
By practicing “wholistic” dentistry, our team is dedicated to considering the impact certain dental treatments may have on the rest of the body and preserving your natural teeth whenever possible. That is why we strongly recommend metal-free and mercury-free restorative solutions and offer sensitivity testing as well, among other likeminded services. Our goal is to help you lead a healthier, more self-assured life as a result!
Dr. Giron is proud to be certified in S.M.A.R.T, which stands for Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique. Old amalgam fillings contain mercury, which can be accidentally ingested or inhaled during the removal process; by following this protocol, our team minimizes this potential harmful exposure to the greatest degree possible while helping patients replace traditional fillings with biocompatible composite resin, which offers a seamlessly attractive and safe result.
The dentist’s office doesn’t have to feel overly sterile and cold – at ABQ Wholistic Dentistry, our team has gone the extra mile to create a space that seems more like visiting your favorite spa! In addition to the pleasing décor and the friendly faces who will be attending to you throughout each appointment, we also offer comfort-based amenities like blankets, pillows, and aromatherapy to help you achieve a genuinely relaxed state.
We understand – dental phobia is a real problem that can make it difficult for patients of all ages to undergo much-needed care. Here in Albuquerque, your comfort is always our team’s top priority, which is why we offer a menu of professional sedation services that can help take the edge off those frazzled nerves at last. Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) has a mild, pleasant effect, while oral conscious sedation is stronger in nature – Dr. Giron can help you determine which option is the right fit for your unique needs.
Something for Everyone
Dr. Giron is proud to offer an extensive spectrum of different services so that you can have all of your needs addressed in one convenient location – no tedious traveling required! From essential dental checkups and cleanings to dedicated emergency care to advanced tooth replacement, we enjoy being able to share the valuable benefits of these services with our patients so that they can select the option or options that best fit their unique goals and preferences.
You Hold the Keys
Far too often, our team hears horror stories from patients about being pressured into overblown treatment plans they don’t really need or want by another dentist. Trust us when we say that you are always in charge of your own body here at ABQ Wholistic Dentistry. Dr. Giron will present all of your available options in a transparent and educational manner and then let you, the patient, decide what you’d like to do next before any actual treatment begins. It’s as simple as that!
