How oral health affects Fort Lauderdale, FL patients’ overall body wellness
Patients in the area of Fort Lauderdale, FL who are interested in achieving beautiful, healthy smiles are encouraged to consider the oral systemic connection that links oral health, gut health, and overall health. Many patients are unaware of how oral health affects the wellness of their entire body. Overall health is more than just living an active lifestyle and eating a good diet with proper nutrition. One’s oral health can be linked together with one’s body through the oral systemic connection.
Linking silver amalgam fillings to poor patient health
Dr. Yolanda Cintron of Go Natural Dentistry is a biological dentist in the community who invites patients to learn more about the oral-systemic connection and the link to silver amalgam fillings. If you have visited a dentist for the treatment of cavities and have received dark-colored fillings, you may have silver amalgam in your mouth right now. These dental amalgams are the primary source of mercury toxicity and exposure in Americans. Mercury toxicity can cause damage to many areas of the body. The more amalgam fillings one has, the more likely their risk of problems throughout the body. Silver amalgam toxicity has been linked to everything from cardiovascular disease to cancer.
At Go Natural Dentistry, our team encourages patients to consider the removal of silver amalgam fillings in a safe and experienced environment, and consider alternative materials that are more holistic, such as composite resin bonding. Composite resin bonding has grown in popularity not only because it is safer for the mouth and body, but because it is more aesthetic in the smile. Our team evaluates patients to determine if they are good candidates for this replacement option to achieve better oral and overall health!
