The place to find holistic information about your health

55 / Why You Need To Listen To Your Mouth w/ Dr. Sanda Moldovan

If you’ve ever had a root canal, you may be at risk for all sorts of complications beyond just the ones in your mouth. The problem is that many dentists are not aware of the connections between oral health the other parts of your body. That’s why I’ve brought in someone who understands as well as anyone the importance of taking a holistic approach to oral care.

With an office in both Los Angeles and New York, Dr. Sanda Moldovan MS, DDS is an internationally recognized speaker, award-winning periodontist, author, and television personality and consultant on oral health, periodontics, nutrition, and anti-aging.  Dr. Moldovan’s strong belief that health issues in the mouth are key indicators of a person’s overall well-being has led her to become one of the leading advocates for a well-rounded approach to oral health and nutrition.

Today, Dr. Moldovan and I discuss how infections in the mouth are actually signs that there are other issues going on with your health. Sometimes, even after we have the problem “fixed” through a root canal or other procedure, more problems can even occur as a result. As Dr. Moldovan explains, that’s why it’s essential to take a holistic approach to oral healthcare.

“The issue with root canals is that it’s such an archaic way of treating a diseased tooth or pain.” [2:29]

“If you feel that there is something going on with your tooth, then something is going on with your tooth, even though we don’t see it on the x-ray.” [6:18]

“We underestimate the importance of what we put in the body. And the mouth is the one place where we introduce a lot of foreign materials without really knowing what we’re doing.” [23:23]

“We’re at such a good age in dentistry where we have healthier choices, healthier materials, and we can really pinpoint exactly how to give someone or offer someone a choice for optimum health.” [26:17]
