Your oral health is a personal and precious asset – maybe even more so than you realize. For instance, research has linked gum disease to a number of whole-health problems, ranging from heart attack and stroke to diabetes complications and Alzheimer’s disease. Gum disease is also the main cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Statistics show that many people without teeth don’t live as long as those with a full set of healthy teeth. This is just one example of the many reasons why we practice holistic dentistry at the Sunnyvale dental office of Dr. William B. Langston III. We know that the entire body is interconnected, and we want to harness dentistry to support your whole-body health.
