Educate yourself on how to keep a healthy mouth with our Fort Lauderdale, FL professional
At Go Natural Dentistry, patients of the Fort Lauderdale, FL area have ways to educate themselves on how to keep their mouth healthy. Also, with proper dental care, patients will notice a vast improvement in their body’s overall health and wellness. Many health problems can be caused by conventional dentistry, and now it is more important than ever to pay close attention to dental work being completed and determine how it can impact your body.
Many patients who have dental restorations such as titanium dental implants may want to speak to a holistic dentist about the biocompatibility of alternative options, including zirconium implants. Instead of using metal, more biocompatible materials can be obtained and used to treat problems of the smile—including tooth loss and restoration.
Another problem that is seen by patients is that of mercury toxicity. When patients have silver amalgam fillings placed for cavities, they are putting themselves at risk for the toxicity of the body. Silver amalgam materials should be avoided at all costs since research continues to show them to be a cause of neurological problems and other health concerns.
When a tooth becomes infected, many dentists will perform what is called root canal therapy. During this treatment, the tooth’s dental pulp is removed. The tooth is disinfected, and then a material known as gutta percha will seal the canals. The tooth is often restored with a dental crown, as well. However, this does not always stop the infection, and if the infection returns, it can wreak havoc on the body through the oral-systemic connection. This is also true for patients who have periodontal disease, which passes the infection through the bloodstream and to the other organs of the body. Instead, patients should have these infected teeth extracted and replaced with metal-free solutions such as zirconium implants or porcelain bridges.
