Oral health affects the entire body. Perhaps of the greatest significance is periodontal disease, which can both contribute to and be caused by systemic inflammation. Periodontitis often begins with gingivitis and leads to destruction of ligaments and bone surrounding the teeth and ultimately tooth loss. Periodontitis generally involves the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, which feed on plaque or other toxins in the mouth, possibly including metals released from amalgam fillings. More

Chiropractic Economics    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
You may already know that poor dental health has been linked to various health risks such as heart disease. But did you know that chiropractors can assist patients with an evidence-based approach to treating gingivitis and periodontal disease?

Jane Pak: Differentiated dentists
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
My general rule when asked for expert advice is to go to experts as I define them to be. If you look around, you will find many purported experts on many things such as witnessing, flame throwing and even consulting (which seems redundant, but I suppose you could consult without being an actual expert in a field).
