Holistic dental care is at the forefront of this Wrentham, Massachusetts 02093-area practice
Wrentham, Massachusetts 02093-area patients who are interested in learning about holistic dental care for their smiles are encouraged to visit Advanced Dental Practices. Our dentist, Dr. Ross Palioca and his team treat smiles with biocompatible materials and products to ensure overall health and wellness. They take the time to educate patients on the oral systemic connection.
What is the oral systemic connection?
It is the link between the health of the mouth and the health of the body. When patients have conditions such as periodontal disease, they may be putting themselves at risk for other medical conditions including:
- Increased risk of strokes
- Increased risk of heart disease/heart attacks
- Infection throughout the body
Periodontal disease explained
Periodontal disease, or “gum disease,” is an infection that starts in the mouth. It begins with the gum tissues and carries through to the bone. The infection causes the gum tissues and bone to shrink, ultimately affecting the foundation of the smile and resulting in lost teeth. If the condition is diagnosed early enough and is treated by a dental professional, patients can address the infection and reduce the long-term problems associated with it. Without treatment, patients are at risk of losing all their teeth while putting their body at risk for the above concerns. Our team cannot over-stress the importance of regular dental visits to monitor for these issues.
