Whole Health Dentistry Can Make a Whole World of Difference.
From very early childhood and throughout life, conditions in the mouth can be a sign of more serious present and future problems. That’s why we’re so committed to Whole Health Dentistry—the idea that your mouth has a direct relationship to the proper function of the rest of your body. It’s also the big difference between our comprehensive approach and the standard dental care you may be currently receiving.
Think about it—your mouth is the center of so many vital functions, including eating, breathing, swallowing and speaking. When your mouth or jaw is disturbed, such as by increased muscle tension or changes in bite and jaw position through trauma, the result can be interference with your ability to perform these everyday physiological functions. You might also experience chronic pain—centered around the face, neck and shoulders—as well as swallowing difficulties, speech problems, fatigue, and sleep disorders.
Periodontal Disease Screening
There is also growing evidence of a correlation between periodontal (gum) disease with diabetes, stroke, heart disease and low-birth-weight babies. Poor mouth care can also contribute to oral cancer, which now takes more lives than cervical or skin cancers. Our comprehensive exams are directed toward early discovery and effective treatment of these oral health issues and their systemic impact, coordinating with your physician when necessary. Likewise, physicians who recognize the mouth’s relationship to overall wellness frequently refer their patients to the Hindin Center for consultation and advanced oral treatment.
As part of our unique whole health approach, you should know that we use only mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings at the Hindin Center, and take only digital x-rays, which decrease radiation exposure by up to 90%. All this because we’re committed to a kind of true oral health that goes far beyond an attractive smile. When you come to the Hindin Center, you enter a supportive family environment where our expert and comprehensive care can significantly improve the quality of your life. That’s the power of Whole Health Dentistry.
