Natural Supplements Q & A

How does diet affect my health?

Certain foods, especially those high in sugar, can bring on rapid tooth decay and gum disease. An unhealthy diet can also cause obesity and encourages systemic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. 

Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry providers can recommend a specific plan for healthy eating. Generally, this means a well-balanced diet rich in lean proteins, veggies, fruits, whole grains, and reduced-fat dairy products, while avoiding the most harmful sugars and refined carbs.

It’s not only your diet that impacts your overall health, either; it’s your eating patterns. Snacking between meals can greatly increase your risk of oral disease. By restricting your eating to mealtimes and drinking plenty of water each day, you’re already making positive changes. 

You truly are what you eat, and Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry is ready to help you get the nutrients you need. 

How do I know when I have nutritional deficiencies?

When you don’t have the right levels of vitamins and minerals in your body, none of your body’s systems can work the way they need to. This may lead to chronic issues like lethargy, headaches, pain, and other problems. 

The best way to find out whether you have any damaging nutritional deficiencies is a simple salivary test at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry. 

Salivary testing can identify the nutrients you lack while also predicting potential health issues related to poor nutrition. With the highly detailed salivary testing report, you can see exactly what kind of supplements you need to return to optimal health and even prevent chronic illness. 

Even if you eat healthily, you may have nutritional deficiencies. For example, many medications leech vitamins and other important nutrients out of your body. 

Fortunately, vitamin therapy with herbal/natural supplements can restore your health, regardless of the reason for your deficiencies.

What kind of natural supplements do I need?

That depends on your personalized salivary testing report and personal needs. But, some of the most important vitamins and minerals include:

  • B vitamins to help turn food into fuel and energy
  • Vitamin A for vision, immune function, and reproduction
  • Vitamin C for antioxidants, and heart disease prevention
  • Vitamin D for reducing disease risk and maintaining strength

Your dentist recommends a customized natural supplements plan to restore your vitamin and mineral levels and improve your whole-body health for the rest of your life.
