Did you know that your oral health affects the rest of your body?
Likewise, a medical condition can affect the health of your teeth and gums. For example, patients with diabetes are more likely to develop gum disease because of their low resistance to infection. Our holistic dentist is aware of these types of relationships so you can maintain total body health.
Total Body Health
Our holistic dentist focuses on protecting the entire health of the patient. This means examining your teeth, gums, and jaw for what could indicate larger problems with your health.
For example, worn tooth enamel could indicate nighttime teeth grinding or an eating disorder. Our holistic dentist acts like a detective to see the bigger picture with your health.
Mitigating Risk Factors
Our holistic dentist understands how certain family histories, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices increase your risk for injury and disease. For example, smoking increases your risk for oral and throat cancers. With this information, our holistic dentist would make sure that you have regular oral cancer screenings. This is just one of the many ways our dentist looks out for you and your family.
Focus on protecting the entire health of the patient!
