The secret to better dental health: smaller teeth?
Updated: 9/24/2009 7:00:24 PM
 

The secret to better dental health: smaller teeth? Can one's dental health problems be linked back to the size of their teeth? That's precisely what Dr Larry Lytle is hypothesizing with what he calls Dental Distress Syndrome.

Lytle, in column he wrote for HealthNewsDigest.com, explains that the four front teeth are connected through the Sympathetic Nervous System to the spinal cord, and by extension the brain.

When the front teeth interact before the back, they increase the activity of the SNS and decrease the activity in the parasympathetic nervous system – a schism which can lead to increases in body activity, stress, blood pressure, heart and breathing rate and decreased glandular, stomach and intestinal function.

Even with proper dental care, Lytle cites the main cause of tooth decay as aging – something "we all must face."

In his blog, he details low-level laser therapy and specially fitted guides for your back teeth as good temporary solutions, but states that the only permanent solution is a cosmetic dental procedure.

Dental care has been shown to have a wide array of positive secondary health benefits, including a recent Aetna study that showed that women who received dental care before or during their pregnancy had a lower risk of giving birth to preterm or low birth weight babies.
