Over time researchers have found a body-mouth connection that demonstrates how critical it is that people take care of their smile. It can seem that brushing and flossing are not critical and that you can skip a day or two, but this is not the case. Your smile needs to be free of dental decay, periodontal disease, and other problems in order to also help keep your body in the best shape it can be in.
Keeping your smile healthy can help to keep your energy levels high and your body in great shape. Years ago, if you were pregnant, your doctor didn’t necessarily send you to your periodontist or if you had cracked or broken teeth they most likely did not recommend you visit a prosthodontist, but now doctors and prosthodontists, like Dr. Judy Strutz, understand the importance of keeping your smile in great shape.
The challenge with having dental problems is that when you have an infection in your mouth, your body moves in to fight the infection. Not taking care of the problem means that your body is always fighting the infection and your immune system is in overdrive. If you are concerned about the health of your smile, contact Dr. Strutz and her team.
