As the gateway to the rest of your body, issues in your mouth can affect your overall systemic health. There are many studies linking infections and inflammations in the mouth to Heart Disease, Stroke and more recently Dementia.
Your mouth can be an early indicator of diseases such as Diabetes, Osteoporosis, HIV/AIDS. Imbalances in your occlusion (bite) left uncorrected can lead to physical imbalances, headaches/migraines and neuromuscular problems in the rest of your body. A healthy, functional set of teeth allows you to chew properly extracting the maximum nutrients from your food.
We aim to prevent disease and promote health by protecting and rejuvenating your mouth and overall health. Our goals for you are to relieve the body of stressors such as, infection, inflammation, toxic chemicals and metals. We achieve this by listening intently to you and your particular issues and goals and working with you to achieve your desired outcomes.
