2017-It is a New Year, and you are ready to make those positive changes in your life. Many of us share similar New Year’s Resolutions; “I will exercise on a daily. I will eat healthier meals with a balance of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. I will prioritize my day better, and make it point to spend more quality time with my family members and dear friends. I will actively pursue my career goals, give that extra effort, and interview for that new job opportunity. And finally, I want to improve my heath and overall wellness.” -Well, this is the resolution that Dr. Morse, Dr. Mohr, and Team can support you with!
Your dental health plays a key role in your overall wellness. “How?”, you ask. The world-renowned Mayo Clinic deems oral health as the window to your overall health. Dental problems in your mouth can have a tremendous effect on the health of the rest of your body. If you live a life without the best dental care and oral hygiene, your mouth’s high bacteria levels can lead to oral infections, tooth decay, and gum disease. Especially today, all the medications that most of us take, decongestants, antidepressants, diuretics, and painkillers lowers saliva levels in the mouth. Because saliva naturally flushes out food partials and neutralizes your mouth’s acidity levels, the lack of saliva leads to an overgrowth of bacteria, which causes to disease, and wreaks havoc on you overall health. In fact, the Mayo Clinic states that poor oral health contributes directly to endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, infertility, premature birth, and low birth weights.
