There is a new paradigm emerging in healthcare– one that focuses on overall health and wellness rather than just the treatment of disease. Although it’s easy to see the value of dental checkups for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, it’s not always apparent how it relates to general health and well-being.

Though some may think of dental health and overall health as being somewhat unrelated, it might surprise you to know that they are more connected than assumed at first glance. Your mouth is directly related to your systemic health.  Inflammation, bacteria, and infection in your mouth expose your whole body to risk. Also, many diseases and conditions will exhibit early signs visible in the mouth. Maintaining oral health is essential for your overall well-being.

Dr. Ryan Jones and his team at Nashville Restorative Dentistry, a Dental Office in Franklin, are providing the greater Nashville area with a more holistic approach to oral health. They seek to help their patients achieve health, stability, and wellness through dentistry; with the goal to reduce the need for invasive care down the road.

Nashville Restorative Dentistry values using safe, effective, and holistic treatment methods. A few of these methods include the use of PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) Therapy, Ozone Therapy, and mercury and BPA free fillings. According to the National Institute of Health, PRF Therapy uses cells from your body to improve the quality and speed of recovery following a dental surgery. Ozone Therapy, which has been reviewed by the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine, utilizes pure oxygen to promote dental health and assist killing bacteria associated with tooth decay, periodontal disease, infected root canals, and TMJ/TMD. And white composite fillings, which look very natural, are opted for in place of amalgam fillings in order to repair teeth without using mercury. Amalgam fillings (“silver fillings”) contain mercury, which has been noted by the FDA as a neurotoxin that can have negative effects on health.
