Are your gums and teeth healthy or are you dealing with dental problems and struggling with oral health and hygiene? Unfortunately too many adults and children are dealing with dental problems today that will likely become worse with time and lead to serious disease issues and health hazards. Unfortunately too many people are clueless, complacent and confused as to how to properly care for their gums and teeth. Previous blog posts have addressed the importance of avoiding harmful mouthwash and toxic toothpaste. Without the new knowledge gained from the Holistic Oral Health Summit those posts fell far short on a full scope of dental and oral health education and information. Many people are harming their health and quality of life following the wrong dental advice and can end up sabotaging their long tern happiness and health. Due to a lack of detailed education and information most people are harming their gums and teeth and allowing dental professionals to do the same. Even the American Dental Association (ADA) seems to be complacent, confused and conspiring in their policies and procedures. With a few basic dental and oral health guidelines you will be able to implement better oral health care for your gums and teeth.
There are many different hidden agendas, opinions and points of view regarding dental and oral health. With basic education and information you will be able to decide for yourself and make better choices regarding what is the best course of action for your gums, teeth and oral health. If your health and well being are top priorities it is essential to make smart choices and decisions about your dental care for your long term health and well being. The goal of this blog post is to educate and inform readers about better oral health.
Oral Health 101
People are making misinformed and uneducated choices and decisions about holistic dental care that are robbing them of their long term health. Beverages, foods and products contain many ingredients that affect the quality of our gums, teeth and overall health. Not to mention the various dental procedures and policies that can also harm your gums, teeth and overall health. These choices, decisions and factors are responsible for billions of dollars spent on chronic gum, teeth and oral health issues. Our health is our wealth and many people are making unhealthy choices regarding oral health.
Our blood, gums and teeth are intricately connected to all other aspects of our health and well being. Unfortunately we live in a world where big corporations, mass media and special interest groups can use confusion, deception and misinformation for their profit proposition and to the detriment of consumers regarding oral health which can rob us of our long term vibrant health and well being.
Holistic Oral Health 101
As a child we learn the importance of brushing our teeth and seeing the dentist regularly for check ups and cleanings. Unfortunately in school we do not learn much about how are our gums and teeth are part of a complicated and elaborate matrix that affects every other part of the body. Many companies make big bucks regarding care for our gums and teeth and if the truth be known have an ulterior motive when it comes to the best choices and decision regarding our oral care. Thanks to the power of the internet to educate and inform us there is a wealth of information available today on the holistic dental health. While it can take a lot of time to read, research and review resources to become educated on holistic oral health the hard work has already been done for you. I highly recommend you access the The Holistic Oral Health Summit to learn the benefits of holistic dental care.
