The Oral Microbiome

Your mouth does so much, so much happens in the mouth, it’s the start of your digestive system!

The mouth is your first microbiome, the oral microbiome, and one that you cannot separate from the rest of your biology.

If you have chronic tooth pain, abscess, root canal, receding gums, bleeding gums, plaque build-up over the day, and more at night, then you have more than a dental hygiene issue you have a systemic issue such as Diabetes, RA, cancer, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, fertility.

What if all chronic diseases started in the oral cavity? Chronic sinusitis and dental infections, resulting in facial neuralgia, chronic eye disorders, headaches, migraines, and jaw inflammation.

All your teeth have a supply of nerves and blood, they are an organ just like any other and each tooth represents an organ in the body.

Infections in the mouth are serious as they have entered into the rest of the bloodstream.

  1. So make sure you rinse your mouth upon waking.
  2. Brush your teeth with nontoxic (fluoride) toothpaste. You don’t want the microbes you don’t want to kill everything and weaken your enamel.
  3. Drink a pint of water and eat an hour later!

Happy kissing! Book in for a 15 min consultation if you think you need some help.
