Nutrition and Holistic Dentistry: A Critical Connection

Achy joints, headaches, irritability, fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues, depression, hormone problems, weight gain-does this sound like you?  If so the foods you eat every day may be to blame.  Could the bagels you eat for breakfast bring on your afternoon headache? Could the diet sodas you drink cause pain? Could the milk in your coffee cause joint pain, brain fog or eczema? Yes-there is a powerful connection between what you eat and how you feel.  Carol helps patients suffering from inflammation or TMJ problems learn how to identify dietary triggers.  She offers individualized nutritional protocols which can definitely help every dental patient.

Oral Health Connection and Nutrition

Every part of the body need nutrients to function properly.  Your teeth and gums require vitamins, and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin D, calcium, zinc, magnesium and protein to remain in good health.  Eating the right foods and implementing  good oral hygiene habits can help your teeth, bones, and gums be healthy.  Decay rate is influenced by the types of food you eat, how often you eat and the pH of your saliva.
