Most people don’t realize how much your oral health and hygiene can affect your overall health and well-being. A shocking number of chronic health issues, gut issues, and even cardiac issues can be traced back to some sort of imbalance, infection, or toxicity in your mouth. That’s where natural dentistry comes in; a facet of functional medicine specifically focused on holistic dental solutions.
