What is Biological Dentistry?
Biological dentistry is a revolutionary approach to oral health, as well as whole-body health, that emphasizes prevention and conservative treatment methods. It discourages the use of invasive surgeries, mercury and other toxins, or side effect-laden pharmaceuticals.
Utilizing lifestyle changes and non-pharmaceutical treatments, biological dentists can help you prevent diseases from developing or progressing. They also treat less understood systemic diseases rooted in poor oral health.
Biological dentists believe in the mouth-body connection more than conventional dentists. The “mouth-body connection” refers to the idea that your oral health and overall health are inextricably linked.
Biological dentistry tries to bridge the gap between medical and oral health, even when insurance companies stand in the way.
What is the Mouth-Body Connection?
The mouth-body connection refers to the undeniable fact that your oral health and whole-body health are connected.
For instance, 80-95% of American adults suffer from gum disease, one of the leading root causes of chronic inflammation, even if the inflammation is manageable, like with gingivitis. These low but constant levels of inflammation can adversely affect your overall health. Plus, the presence of gum disease is associated with diseases from diabetes to Alzheimer’s.
And that’s just one example of the mouth-body connection. There are many, many more:
-Alkalizing diet and anti-inflammatory foods benefit your oral health and overall wellness
-Using hand sanitizer all the time leads to immune dysfunction and damaged skin microbiome
-Stress wrecks everything — your oral health, your immune system, etc.
-Exercise improves your whole-body health, and can even improve your oral health
