Dental Health is Whole Body Health
As if there wasn’t already enough reason to find a Local Respected Boston Dentist like Dental Health and Wellness Boston, your future good health may depend on it. A recent study on medpagetoday.com reveals a correlation between periodontal disease and strokes. Of the 10,000 healthy participants in the study who had their teeth cleaned regularly, only 14 suffered a stroke, whereas their gum diseased counterparts suffered strokes at a rate of nearly one in 100.
Here at Dental Health and Wellness Boston, we believe that a healthy mouth creates a healthy person. A healthy mouth should be a universal standard, and it was in creating this standard that the Healthy Mouth Baseline came to be. The Baseline revolves around the idea that healthy gums yield healthy teeth, which in turn yield a healthy bite, creating a healthier you.
If issues such as pocketing, receding gums, or plaque and tartar are occurring in the mouth, this leads to issues in tooth structure, such as decay and cavities, or weak enamel. This can lead to missing teeth, a collapsed bite, headaches and tooth pain, all of which are avoidable through proper gum maintenance. By implementing the healthy mouth baseline, we now have a standard of care for all of our patients so they can have their teeth for the rest of their life and achieve whole-body wellness.
Whether you are a new patient or a seasoned veteran, your friendly hygienist will explain the healthy mouth baseline and help you find ways to improve your oral health. Some healthy habits that improve oral health include diets low in refined sugars and acids, oral cancer screenings, brushing and flossing and refraining from tobacco products.
As your downtown Boston Dentist, Dental Health and Wellness Boston strives to help each patient reach their dental goals. Our patients will eagerly share how their lives have been changed for the better due to our tireless efforts as a Wellness Team.
