Whole Body Care Through Oral Hygiene with Dr. Al Danenberg
October 14, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Dr. Al Danenberg and Carmen discuss all things dental and how to take better care of your whole body through your oral hygiene. Dental plaque is HEALTHY – until it’s not! Tooth decay and gum disease start in the gut! An unhealthy gut leads to a compromised immune system and chronic system inflammation Chronic systemic inflammation and a compromised immune system disrupt the balance of bacteria in the mouth The imbalance of bacteria in the mouth will be further affected by poor food choices, which allow potentially pathogenic bacteria to overpopulate and cause tooth decay and gum disease Dental diseases and poor gut health create a vicious cycle that further damage the overall health of the body
