Fort Lauderdale dentist explains how good oral health care prevents thyroid issues

Prevents Thyroid with Good Oral Health Care in Fort Lauderdale area

The thyroid is a small gland that sits at the base of our throat. When your thyroid is not functioning optimally, it can lead to several issues that dramatically affect your quality of life – irritability, fatigue, weight gain, constipation, and menstrual problems are all common among hypothyroid sufferers. Did you know that it may be possible to prevent thyroid issues with good oral health care?

At Go Natural Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Dr. Yolanda Cintron uses a whole-body approach to treat your teeth and gums. Poor health can be caused by several issues, and among them is the health of your mouth. Unresolved dental issues can cause a whole host of problems not just within the mouth, but throughout the entire body. Using the Meridian tooth chart, you can see how the teeth are interconnected to every part of the body through meridian channels. In the case of thyroid problems, there are many teeth that are interconnected with the thyroid and could be affecting the health of your thyroid.

Gum disease, dental infections, cracked teeth, and other problems can all contribute to hormonal imbalances in the body. You don’t have to actively feel tooth pain for these issues to occur, either! While root canals and amalgam restorations have been used in dentistry for many years, if your teeth have been treated with one of these therapies in the past, there may be underlying infections and toxicity that are negatively impacting your thyroid health. At Go Natural Dentistry, we perform a thorough evaluation of all your teeth and gums, as well as use science-based testing to determine what materials your body is sensitive to. Based on this evaluation, Dr. Cintron partners with you to determine the best path forward for your oral health and overall wellbeing.
