Systems vs. Symptoms: A New Approach to Dental Health

Many old-school dentists look at patients and see a collection of symptoms: toothaches, bad breath, cavities, etc.

As a modern holistic dentist, I see you as a unique person with unique health needs. I look beyond symptoms and focus on your oral systemic health and how they influences your wellness.

As an experienced dentist, I want to educate you on the importance of systemic health and how it can affect your life and dental health.

Meet Dr. Patel, holistic dentist and authority on oral systemic health

Oral Systemic Health:
The Gateway to the Body

It seems so obvious but too many dentists overlook the connection between your mouth and the rest of the systems in your body. Digestion, cardiovascular health, respiratory health, and many other systems are all connected through your mouth!

At Green Dentistry, Dr. Patel focuses your care on improving the oral systemic health of your teeth and gums and, in turn, improving the health of systems throughout your body. It works the other way too – by improving your cardiovascular health, for example, you may be able to improve the health of your teeth and gums!

How can you make sure all of your systems are in balance and working together?

  • Eat a healthy diet rich in leafy greens, nuts, and low in sugary foods
  • Brushing and flossing regularly at home
  • Supplementing your diet with vitamins and minerals when needed
  • Being active and exercising regularly
  • Get your hormone levels checked and be aware of the risk of food metal allergies
  • Visiting Green Dentistry for checkups and cleanings to remove built up tartar and plaque
Did You Know:

Many serious health issues have been shown to have links to oral systemic health. These include: diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and many more.

The Health Consequences of Systemic Deficiencies

When your body’s systems are lacking, your health suffers, often in surprising ways. You may see problems like:

  • Tooth decay & cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Low energy and hormonal imbalances
  • Increased risk of diabetes and heart disease
  • More infections
  • Slower healing
  • Depression and mental health issues
  • Osteoporosis

The best way to achieve lasting health starts with proactive and preventive dental care at Green Dentistry.
