What is Complete Health Dentistry?
Your Overall Health Starts with a Healthy Mouth
You may not realize it when you visit Runion Dental Group, but we are not just caring for your oral health. We are also caring for your overall health.
In fact, current research shows a direct link between the health of your mouth and your overall health. When you are a patient at our office, your complete health is our top priority and we want to be a part of your integrated healthcare team. This holistic care begins with oral health because your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body.
Many people think that regular cleanings and dental visits at Runion Dental Group are just preventing cavities or other potential oral health issues. However, there are many other physical health problems that can occur due to poor oral health. Some of these conditions include:
It may be surprising to hear that 95% of adults in the United States that are diagnosed with diabetes are also diagnosed with periodontal disease. This condition is a growing concern. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 29.1 million people in the United States alone have diabetes.
Heart Disease and Stroke:
If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, the likelihood of you experiencing a stroke or becoming diagnosed with heart disease greatly increases.
Pregnancy and Birth:
When it comes to pregnancy and birth, studies have found a strong correlation between periodontal disease and premature birth along with low birth weight.
Periodontal disease greatly increases your chance of having issues with your respiratory system and your lungs. Bacteria from poor oral health can make its way to your lungs and disrupt your respiratory system. Some other health conditions that poor oral health can lead to include sleep apnea, pancreatic cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and obesity. At Runion Dental Group, our commitment is to eliminate oral inflammation that puts you at increased risk for the many conditions listed above and more. We are leading the way in preventative care – not just cavity prevention.
Accelerate healing after dental treatment with PRP Therapy
PRP is platelet-rich plasma. PRP permits the body to take advantage of normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the wound in order to initiate healing. One of those cell types is platelets. Platelets perform many functions, including the formation of a blood clot and release of growth factors into the wound. These growth factors assist the body in repairing itself by stimulating stem cells to regenerate new tissue. Thus, PRP permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently. For more information about platelet-rich plasma therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Runion.
