Infections and Your Health
Many patients are surprised when I tell them that neglecting dental health can cause issues elsewhere in the body. That’s because your body works as a complete system: if one part of this system becomes weak or infected, other areas often have to do double-duty when it comes to fighting infection and trying to heal the body. Helen Raptis and I discuss dental infections and what you can do – besides brushing and flossing – to make sure you have optimal dental and full-body health.
AMNW: Implant Dentures
Helen Raptis recently invited me on to her show to discuss dental health and the incredible results that are possible with modern implant dentures. If a patient has major issues with many teeth, often the best way to eliminate disease from the mouth is with complete implant dentures. By replacing the teeth with a prosthetic – either snap-in, snap-out or permanently affixed – we can remove diseased teeth and set our patients up on a path to renewed health.
Patients come in with persistent health issues all the time. They don’t even think their problems are related to dental health because their symptoms are in other places: their throat, sinuses or elsewhere in the body. But all of these systems can be impacted by dental infections. Helen and I discuss some of the issues I see and how they can be treated.
Overview of Implant Dentures
Today on AM Northwest, Helen and I discussed the benefits of implant dentures over traditional dentures, and the different ways they can be done. So many of my patients have regained the ability to chew and talk, and have regained the confidence lost with their original teeth!
Fixing Old Mercury Silver Fillings
Many of my patients come to me (sometimes after many years without seeing a dentist) with a very common issue – deteriorating old fillings. They used to be made with mercury and silver – but not anymore! With the latest porcelain fillings and implants, we can remove those metals from your mouth for good. Porcelain not only looks better, but it is strong and durable too.
This time on AM Northwest, I spoke with Helen Raptis about an extremely useful procedure that we specialize in at Sleep Dentistry Defined: dental implants! Dental implants are used when a tooth – or several teeth – are damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced. By fitting anywhere from one to eight implants, we can permanently anchor new, porcelain implants that feel and look fantastic!
