Holistic Dentistry

It is becoming well known in medicine that the mouth is a gateway for bacteria to enter the bloodstream. Incidence and severity of periodontal disease is positively correlated with many diseases that we know of, including:

  1. Heart Disease,
  2. Cardiovascular disease,
  3. Diabetes,
  4. Pregnancy problems,
  5. Respiratory Disease, and
  6. Other Inflammatory Diseases.
It is also becoming known in Preventive Health Medicine that refined sugar and heavy metal toxicity (ex. Mercury,..) may play a large role in causing many diseases.
Dr. Silvestro and his team believe in a total body approach to health, which starts in restoring the mouth to health and counseling patients on diet and vitamins.
