(NaturalHealth365) Conventional dentistry that takes a one-tooth-at-a-time approach could be setting you up for health consequences, some of them serious. That’s because teeth often harbor infection with few, if any, outward symptoms.

There is evidence that teeth are connected to other body systems, allowing them to have a far-reaching impact on your health. Yet, many Americans receiving routine dental care are left with chronic infection and compromised immunity that can open the door to all types of disease.

Did you know that just one uneducated visit to the dentist can have devastating effects on your health! Join Jonathan Landsman plus over 30 world-class health educators at The Holistic Oral Health Summit. Register today for the Holistic Oral Health Summit and learn how to protect your health.

Your mouth is a breeding ground for trouble

The mouth’s vulnerability for harboring infection that can have serious repercussions on your health should come as no surprise. The mouth is a warm, moist environment, full of food-laden saliva, decaying teeth and softened gums – just the type of breeding ground many harmful bacteria find inviting.

But the sensitive tissues of your mouth and teeth are also subject to extremes in temperature from hot and icy foods, mechanical stresses brought about by hard, textured foods, and chemical attacks, thanks to wide swings in acidity. Certain modern dental procedures, such as root canals, can increase your vulnerability to infection as well as chronic disease because the mouth becomes more prone for infection.

As if that weren’t enough, you can add the dangers of mercury amalgam fillings, estimated to expose your body to deadly mercury metal at a rate six times that found in any fish or seafood. Yet, patients are often reassured with statements that vastly underestimate the amount of mercury released from dental amalgams.

Oral infections pose a serious threat to immune function

A healthy mouth is absolutely essential to overall health because teeth are connected to virtually every organ and gland in the body. When your teeth harbor any sort of infection, even if you feel no symptoms, your body’s immune system kicks into action.

But imagine how chronic oral infection can erode away a body’s immune response over time, essentially wearing out the immune system. When that occurs, your body is left extremely vulnerable to a whole host of illnesses, from autoimmune disease to heart disease and other chronic illnesses.

Unfortunately, the threat of serious illness stemming from poor oral health is not an isolated incident. It is estimated that about 98 percent of all Americans have some areas of diseased gum tissue in their mouths, over half of which are experiencing progressive bone loss.

Poor oral health can cause physical and mental illnesses

Over time, researchers have come to discover that oral infections, especially those involving inflammation of the gums, can impact the severity and severity of a number of systemic illnesses, such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Atheromatous peripheral vascular disease
  • Bacterial pneumonia
  • Adverse pregnancy outcome

Infection is not the only source of chronic health problems caused by conditions in the mouth. An improper bite – how your top and lower teeth meet upon closing your mouth – can cause constant contraction of jaw muscles, a feeling of tightness and a general increase in blood pressure to the muscles and head. This is also referred to as a vascular headache.

In addition to problems with your bite, metal mercury toxicity has been connected to a number of mental health issues, including anxiety, hyperactivity, depression and suicidal behavior, among other psychological conditions. Because metals like mercury can impact the nervous system, children are increasingly labeled as ADHD, hyperactive, learning disabled or any other number of labels.

One solution to consider, is to visit a dentist who is practicing neuromuscular dentistry. Developed over 30 years ago, this type of dentistry looks at the entire relationship between your teeth, jaw joints, jaw muscles and nerves that supply these areas.
