Looking healthy does not equal being healthy
It’s no surprise that when we’re in great shape , we feel good about ourselves and exert confident. There’s a somewhat zen domino effect that takes place when the mind and body connect in a positive way. When we feel confident, we make smarter decisions, and these decisions help us get to a better quality of life.
The importance of a plan for healthy living
The dentists at Manhattan Dental Spa want to work with you to discuss your options and help you understand all the scientific research conflicts today. What people fail to realize is that when we forget about taking care of our mouth and just focus on our physical forms, we are at risk for many diseases and unwanted symptoms. If we’re going to bed late, and not eating the proper nutrients, our immune system will fail us which increases the risk for diseases in our mouth. There are certain drugs like diet pills that people take for the obvious reasons of staying thin or increasing their energy, but they do more than trim the waistline. They could cause something called ‘dry mouth’. If we don’t have enough saliva to keep the mouth constantly wet, we increase our changes of dental decay and yeast infections. It even effects the way we taste our food. Diabetics have to be very careful because a mouth infection could potentially disrupt the blood-sugar levels which makes controlling the disease much harder. Heart disease is also attributed to poor gum management which also leads to a potential stroke, kidney problems, or premature births. The best way to ensure your mouth is always up to medical standards, would be to see your dentist on a regular basis. The more frequent your check ups, the less you have to stress about your mouth and the closer you will be to reaching that mind-body-mouth connection.
