Everyone knows that having healthy teeth and gums equal to a bright smile, but is that all there is to it? Turns out, it’s just the start. Having exceptional oral health means having more than just a beautiful smile — it’s directly linked to our overall health. The same principle works the other way too: Poor oral hygiene can do quite a number on your health.

Take a look at gum disease: it’s terrible, it’s painful, it can cause your teeth to fall out — and most important, it can damage your heart. Various studies have shown that gum disease and heart disease are interconnected, with one research concluding that having gum disease can increase your risk of heart disease by as much as 20 percent. Even the American Heart Association has come forward to state that gum disease is connected to atherosclerosis, a heart condition wherein plaque builds up inside the arteries.
What about the rest of your body? According to Healthline.com, gum disease can make you more susceptible to other diseases. Osteoporosis, respiratory disease, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis are just some of the health conditions that have since been linked to gum disease.
With everything that you’ve just read, you may be thinking that going to the dentist is your safest bet for healthy teeth and gums. Think again. A trip to the dentist’s office can expose you to all types of deadly toxins and contaminants, including but not limited to formaldehyde, mercury, phenol, and lead. In fact, you risk exposing yourself to mercury when you get dental amalgams, of which mercury is a major component.
Things only look bleaker if you’re scheduled to undergo a root canal. Even when done right, the pathogenic bacteria and endotoxins that seep out of the roots can persist well after cleaning to stimulate inflammation across the body. Antibiotics are usually given when a root canal infection occurs. But more often than not, they do little to no help at all.
With all of these issues surrounding your mouth, is there anything you can do to keep it clean and stay healthy at the same time? You can find the answer at the Holistic Oral Health Summit.
