Preventive Dental Hygiene, Aylmer Dentist

Oral Health & Chronic Disease

By taking care of our oral health, we can prevent chronic diseases from developing in our oral cavity and throughout the body. 

While dental problems may start in the mouth, left untreated they can easily lead to other health challenges such as head and neck pain, fatigue, digestive issues, anxiety and depression. 

Chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and respiratory infections are also linked to poor oral health. Even our brains can be impacted, potentially resulting in dementia.

Two of the best tools we have to help avoid these long-term health risks include functional dental care and education about preventive oral health to foster whole-body well-being.

Ask our Aylmer dentists how we can help address any symptoms you may be experiencing and work with you to build a foundation for better lifelong health.

Solutions for Whole-Body Health 

Our dentists understand that oral and overall health challenges can feel daunting. From developing a personalized plan to address emerging dental health issues to discussing nutrition and lifestyle, we offer actionable solutions for whole-body health and well-being.  

What is functional dental care?

Even when we work hard to care for our oral health, problems can arise. Functional dental care aims to identify the root causes of diseases and lifestyle issues that can contribute to negative oral and overall health. 

By taking a functional approach to dental care, we focus on preventing and healing these issues rather than merely treating related symptoms. 

We take a full-body approach to identify the underlying cause of oral health issues ranging from cavities to snoring and jaw pain. 

Emerging dental health issues can be addressed early with tools such as non-metal fillings, orthodontic interventions, and oral appliances, while discussions regarding nutrition and lifestyle practices aim to prevent future issues from arising.
