Dr. Patel’s Approach to Oral Systemic Health
Your body is made up of many interconnected systems, including your mouth, teeth and gums. Find out how these systems work together and improve your whole body health.
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!
- 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
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
The best way to achieve lasting health starts with proactive and preventive dental care at Green Dentistry.
