An individual's dental health can affect their overall well-being, so one dentist is now encouraging his patients to take nutritional supplements.
Dr David DiGiallorenzo is a dentist in Pennsylvania who believes there is a connection between good nutrition and improved periodontal health. He claims supplements can help strengthen the immune system, improve digestion and remove toxins from the body.
"All of these factors are crucial when dealing with chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontal disease," said DiGiallorenzo. "We have become far too sophisticated and many of our foods lack the nutrients they once had. We all can benefit from nutritional supplements."
DiGiallorenzo, who says nutrition is "an essential part of the puzzle," offers consultation to all of his patients who have periodontal disease or have recently received dental implants because he says certain diet habits can accelerate the healing process.
The Mayo Clinic says periodontitis can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke. The infection can be avoided by brushing and flossing daily. Visiting the dentist for regular teeth cleanings can help too.
