The health of your oral cavity extensively affects the overall health of your body.
Stated in another way, you cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mouth. Biological dentists promote dental treatments to build health and wellbeing, using non-toxic dental materials and recognizing that the mouth is an integral part of the body.

Infections of the teeth, gums, jaw bone and tonsils
Studies have shown that plaque in the mouth results in ongoing inflammation which contributes to periodontal (gum) disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, even heart attacks and dementia. Jaw bone infections (cavitations) and oral cavity microbes will spread to other parts of the body.

Without a healthy mouth your immune system will become compromised in its ability to fight these infecting microbes.
