"Beautiful Smiles Begin from Within" is a key concept because it is really is not possible to have optimal periodontal health if you are not healthy. Despite what the insurance industry has said, your mouth is part of your body! We must consider the whole person in our pursuit of dental and general health and especially the role of the immune system and inflammation.
There are several things we can do to reduce inflammation and the best way to get started is to read the book, Eat to Live
by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. The solution to reducing inflammation is eating a mostly plant based diet along with other healthy life style choices. The dental team can only do so much and if the patient doesn't address this part of their recovery plan they won't get optimal results. With this eating plan, one can reduce systemic inflammation up to 50% in 12 weeks!
