The effect of toxins on your dental and overall health (and what to do about them) in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Dr. Yolanda Cintron and the dental team get to the heart of cardiovascular disease – by looking inside patient’s mouths! Many patients with foul breath, loose teeth, and other signs of gum disease also tend to have heart disease and other serious, life-altering conditions. As a holistic practice, we at Go Natural Dentistry intimately understand the effect of toxins on your dental health in Fort Lauderdale, as well as consequences that far transcend the oral cavity. We underscore patient education, oral hygiene, and biological materials and techniques.
An inflammatory condition, gum disease is caused by bacteria. Typically, the bacteria that enters the bloodstream is killed. But this process doesn’t happen among those patients with serious infections, compromised immune systems, diabetes, and heart disease. They can’t fight off these harmful invaders.
There is power in knowing that you can take action to control your risk of heart disease with a toothbrush, floss, and other therapies offered by your biological dentist. As excess oral bacteria produce inflammation, the body goes into “overdrive” trying to protect against this onslaught. The ensuing process impacts vital organs, leading to cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary infections, autoimmune disorders, and cancers.
Disease-fighting, wellness-supporting oral hygiene is complemented by Coenzyme Q10, an antioxidant that:
- Naturally occurs in the body, but is depleted as part of the aging process or the progression of conditions like gum disease
- Can impair the function of vital organs, once its level drops by 20 to 25 percent
- Is introduced into patients’ routines to maintain clean gums and boost the levels of beneficial Vitamins – C and E
- Travels through the bloodstream, preventing heart attacks by protecting against bacterial plaque
After three weeks of using CoQ10, all of Dr. Cintron’s patients in a study had significant improvements in bleeding, pain, swelling, and healing (the placebo had no effect).
If bacteria, viruses, and parasites can build up around the teeth and gums, this not only damages the beauty and health of your smile but is a perfect storm for the development of inflammation throughout the body. Don’t needlessly increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and other systemic conditions.
