Abstract:

"Does your mouth reveal your health secrets? When you sit in the dentist's chair, you expect the exam to uncover issues in the mouth -- and the mouth only. But your teeth and tissues that are exposed when you open wide may hold clues about your risk for heart disease, cancer, arthritis, reproductive issues, and much more -- sometimes long before a physician might notice other warning signs. Your mouth is a window into your overall health -- and your dentist should play an integral role in diagnosing, treating, and/or preventing health problems from your head to your toes. That's the premise of Whole-Body Dentistry, which represents a shift away from the traditional "mouth-only" focus on oral hygiene, fillings, and extractions. This comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide will enable you to understand the vital relationship between your mouth and your health so that you can make informed dental choices that support lifelong wellbeing. You'll learn: How your mouth "works," and how it impacts other parts of the body; Which common dental treatments may be endangering your health; Which health problems can often be traced back to the mouth; Which new tools, diagnostics, procedures, and protocols are available; How and when to advocate for your health in the dentist's office; and much more (including resources to help you find holistic dentists, products, and services). Valuable and eye-opening, Whole-Body Dentistry is a must-have resource for consumers and healthcare professionals alike." --Publisher.

"Presents a shift away from the traditional 'mouth-only' orientation of dentistry, focused on oral hygiene, fillings, and extractions. This revolutionary view of dentistry recognizes that issues in the mouth can trigger seemingly unrelated physical illnesses. Understanding the concepts in this comprehensive guide and reference will help patients make better and more informed dental-treatment choices in order to achieve a higher level of health." --Publisher.
