Learn about the links between oral health and UTIs, prostate, and ovarian diseases
Millions of men and women suffer from debilitating physical and emotional pain every year due to disorders and diseases of the pelvic region, such as recurring urinary tract infections (UTIs), issues with the prostate gland such as cancer or frequent urination, and ovarian problems such as pelvic pain and even infertility or miscarriages. Did you know that these disorders can have links to your oral health? At Go Natural Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Dr. Yolanda Cintron helps explain the connection between these two seemingly unrelated areas of your body.
Pathways in the human body
The human body is incredibly complex and consists of multiple pathways for molecules, blood, bacteria, and energy to flow. When you have an unhealthy mouth due to amalgam fillings, gum disease, active decay, or previously treated root canal teeth or extracted teeth that may be harboring infectious bacteria, the mercury toxins and/or bacteria can travel with ease throughout your body through your bloodstream. This can lead to problems in virtually any organ in the body, and the organs of the pelvic region are no exception. A study from Case Western Reserve University stated that gum disease treatment can improve the symptoms of prostatitis, as well as the quality of life for men who are suffering from the disease.
In addition, the human body has energetic pathways called meridians, and blockages in any of these pathways can lead to disease. The front four upper and lower teeth are connected to:
This means that if these four teeth or the gums in those areas are unhealthy, it could be impacting your pelvic health and causing you distress. By removing mercury amalgam fillings, healing any active infections, or removing root canal-treated teeth, it can help to restore balance to your body.
