Clearing up your oral health can save your life.
Our oral health affects our whole body health. There is strong evidence linking oral infection to other diseases throughout the body. Many prominent researchers and healthcare professionals believe that clearing up one's oral health is essential to preventing and overcoming numerous diseases and health conditions. If you've had root canals, wisdom tooth removal or tooth extractions, read on to find out how thermal imaging is a valuable tool to help find clarity and regain control of your oral health.
How does oral infection affect other areas of the body?
Root canals, wisdom tooth removal, and other dental extractions can cause tiny pockets, or cavitations, in the mouth where microorganisms such as bacteria and various pathogens can live, grow, and colonize, creating an oral infection.
Since our body is highly inter-connected, pathogens and bacteria in the mouth easily enter the blood stream spreading infection to other areas of the body. Via the lymphatic system, infection in the mouth can drain down the neck, thru lymph nodes, and down into the
chest. Thus oral infection can influence diseases like:
The majority of oral infections go unnoticed. Standard dentistry does not use tools that detect most oral infection. In most cases, individuals are usually unaware of infection and feel nothing unusual.
If you’ve had root canals, wisdom tooth removal, or tooth extractions, here are a few initial steps to find clarity & regain control of your oral health:
1. Medical Thermography
Thermal imaging is a non-invasive, safe, and affordable first step in exploring the possibility of oral infection. Thermal scans of the face and neck can detect unusual inflammation indicating possible infection. There's no radiation & no body contact, so it's painless.
2. Biological Dentistry
If inflammation is found on a thermal scan, a biological dentist would have the proper tools to check for cavitation, run tests for pathogens, and depending on the results, set up an action plan.
