Understanding That Our Mouth is The Gateway to Our Body
One thing is clear, as it pertains to our overall health and wellness, our body and mouth are not separate. In fact, they are intimately connected. Our body will affect our mouth, and likewise, our mouth will affect our body.
Taking good care of our teeth and gums will help promote good oral health, and assists in preventing the development of serious diseases that affect the body. This means that we might live well longer and be healthier in the process.
The theory behind the mouth-body connection is that by practicing good oral care, such as brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once per day, you are preventing some diseases from attacking your body.
It's important that you give your dentist access to your comprehensive medical and dental history. Giving your dentist your family history is critical to his or her ability to provide you the best care.
The more information your dentist has about your physical, mental, and dental health history, the better care he or she can provide. For example, if your family has a history of periodontal disease, your dentist needs to know so that he or she can act in your best interest.
The Importance of Regular Checkup's With Your Dentist
Knowing that there is a substantial connection between your mouth's health and your body's health, you should insist on having regular checkups with your dentist. When we treat dental diseases in the early stages we can prevent a lot of damage.
If we let dental problems get to the point that we are in danger of losing our teeth, it's too late for most treatment options. And, the advanced dental disease will affect your overall health. It costs a lot more too! Be safe, and get checkups regularly.
Research Demonstrate an Increased Risk of Systemic Disease in People with Poor Oral Health
Research shows that people with oral disease have an increased rate diabetes. This fact alone should compel you to visit your dentist four to six times per year. The good news about holistic and integrative dentists is that they take a holistic approach to dental care. Meaning, they concerned about you, and your overall health.
It used to be that dentists only cared about your teeth and gums, but today they have a better understanding of how your mouth's health can improve your life experience and prevent non-oral diseases.
The working relationship between diabetes and periodontitis may be the strongest of all the connections between the mouth and body. Inflammation that starts in the mouth seems to weaken our body’s ability to control blood sugar. People with diabetes have trouble processing sugar because of a lack of insulin, which is the hormone that converts sugar into energy.
The good news is that we can use the oral disease-systemic disease relationship to our favor. By caring or preventing the first, we can prevent or treat the second other.
Is Your Toothpaste Laced with Harsh Chemicals, Like SLS?
The mouth is the gateway to our total body health and wellness, and toxins like SLS disrupt and destabilize the Oral Microbiome. "...Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (commonly known as SLS) is a chemical/detergent compound widely used for its ability to create a foaming (lather) effect and in part for its thickening effect..."
Revitin® is "SLS-free" and Safe
Revitin reverses and prevents many canker sores or mouth ulcers. SLS, a detergent found in name brand toothpaste, can cause canker sores in the mouth. Go SLS Free! Plus, Revitin does not contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals which can cause pain and irritation.
The brand name toothpaste companies have spent years and billions of dollars convincing the public that, “Killing germs on contact” was the correct approach to oral care.
We now know this is not true, so we started REVITIN to create an alternative toothpaste formulated with natural ingredients that actually supports overall health & wellness. For years, big brand companies have taken a radical approach to oral care, treating our mouths like germ centers that need to be “sanitized” with powerful antibiotic chemicals.
The concept of killing germs on contact 24 hours a day — using an antimicrobial antibiotic approach — is not only ineffectual but harmful too! What we should be doing is promoting balance — re-balancing the natural ecology of the mouth. The scorched earth policy that we’ve had is the equivalent of killing a coral reef surrounding an island.
The Hard Truth
After 15 years of research, we are finding out some pretty hard truths about the way we have been taken care of our teeth, gums and digestive tract. Come to find out, it is all more tied together than anyone thought.
Our mouths are like a fully functioning ecosystem, and when we kill certain bacteria it interferes with our own natural ability to fight off disease and maintain the balance needed to sustain optimal health.
