Does dental plaque cause atherosclerosis?

Dental plaque, a collection of bacteria forming biofilm, is the cause of the most common diseases of human kind: caries and periodontal disease. Dental caries  is the chronic progressive destruction of the hard tooth enamel by acidogenic, acid producing bacteria embedded in the dental plague. The primary pathogens causing caries are Veillonella dispa, Veillonella alcalesncence, Streptococcus mutans and even commonly found Candida albicans; in addition to producing organic acids, S. mutans produces poysachrides which contribute to formation of biofilm, trapping acids on the tooth surface. The point being: the acid causes dissolution of calcium and phosphate from enamel structure.

Periodontal diseases is associated with different type of pathogens, Gram negative bacteria accumulates in the gums, causing gingivitis.

Biofllm can end up in sinus cavities causing chronic sinusitis. Extensive  research shows that biofilm has also been found forming most of in arterial plaque in some people.  Therefore dental health is not only the key to healthy digestion but also cardiovascular health.

Our Clinic has non-invasive equipment which identifies what pathogens you have in your body including pathogens causing biofilm in the teeth. Once pathogens are identified, an appropriate natural treatment protocol is devised.

The three easy steps for healthy gums, teeth and reduced risk of arterial plaque:

1. Coconut/sesame oil pulling for 5-10 minutes once or twice a day

2. Brushing with a fluoride free tooth paste

3. Mouth wash with a natural herbal antiseptic
