We help patients develop life long healthy habits that help teeth and gums grow stronger. We believe this integrated, total body approach to dentistry is the most effective way to build Healthy Teeth and Gums for Life.
Research continues to indicate that oral health is intricately related to total body wellness. Most well documented is the connection between the gums and heart. In several studies, researchers have found the same bacterium in the gums and heart tissues of individuals with both periodontitis (gum disease) and heart disease. Although it does not prove that one causes the other, it serves as an indication that poor oral hygiene increases the risk of developing other illnesses.
Recipes That Improve Oral Health
Over the years, the Miami Dentist Blog has published several recipes designed to help patients improve oral health and total body wellness. Below is a selection of our most popular recipes. Try them out, and be sure to share them with your friends and family!
Increasingly, health experts are becoming more vocal about the health benefits of Rooibus Tea. It’s loaded with antioxidants, may help to prevent cancer, has been shown to reduce stress, and contains absolutely no caffeine. When looking at the facts, it’s easy to see why so many families are brewing fresh Rooibus tea in the place of iced tea, green tea, and other beverages.

Gluten Free Bread
An estimated 1 in 133 Americans suffer with an allergy to Gluten, a protein found in most processed grains. Many more individuals have a Gluten allergy that may cause serious irritation in the small intestine. It may lead to Leaky Guy Syndrome, a condition in which the intestinal well tears and toxic microbes begin to leak into the abdominal cavity. Celiac Disease, gluten allergy, and Leaky Gut Syndrome cause a variety of serious side effects, which is why many health professionals recommend cutting gluten from your diet altogether.

Paleo Diet Meals
The Paleo Diet has grown in popularity for its light, fresh, and energizing approach to nutrition. Based on the all-natural diet of our Paleolithic Era ancestors, the Paleo Diet consists primarily of fresh meats, fish, seafood, fruits, vegetables, seeds, and healthy legumes. According to nutritionists, “going Paleo” can significantly reduce obesity, improve cardiovascular health, and reduce the incidence of stroke and heart attack. It also delivers a host of mental and mental and emotional benefits like reduced stress, increased ability to focus, and better mood.

Healthy Sugar Cookies
Let’s be honest: Dieting isn’t fun when you can’t reward yourself. It’s okay to crave a little something sweet every now and again, but it’s important to indulge wisely. Choosing dark chocolate over milk chocolate, for example, is a nice compromise that provides the body with excellent nutrition. If you find yourself entertaining guests by the grill this spring or summer, try this healthy sugar cookie recipe for a dessert that everyone will love.
