Wellbeing During Uncertain Times
I launched Integrated Wellness Dentistry with a sense of urgency. With growing research linking dental health to one’s overall health, I am convinced by my own experience that this is indeed true. Did you know that there is a connection between oral health and heart disease? I’m not trying to scare you, but I want you to be an informed patient. By staying on top of your oral hygiene, you can create a platform of health for your entire body.
Oral hygiene requires you to take care of your teeth and gums by brushing twice a day, flossing, and scheduling your dental checkups and cleanings. When our team sees you at your appointment, we will not only care for your desired dental needs, but may also advise opportunities to help with a more flourishing holistic care of your wellbeing. At Paramount Dental Center of Kirkland and Seattle, we want our patients to thrive.
I encourage you to learn more by perusing through this site my team and I’ve created just to keep you informed. Friend us on Facebook to receive alerts about our latest Wellness Blogs to keep you updated.
To your health,

Now, more than ever, we are keenly aware of the importance of wellness. The Sars-Cov-2 pandemic has turned our world upside down and put a magnifying glass to the prevalence of chronic illnesses in the United States. But there is good news! Chronic illness is preventable.
The need to establish preventative, integrated medicine that encompasses all the pillars of health has never been more crucial. More and more over the last decade, research has shown that what you put into your body has drastic effects on your cellular health. The call to action of providing the education and support to build your immune system is now. We are here for you.
WHAT IS WELLNESS?
The human body is incredibly complex and interconnected. When given the necessary building blocks, the body can repair damages and prevent many chronic illnesses. Our goal is to establish what those building blocks are and create a generation of people who actively commit to achieving a fulfilled and healthy life and well being.
Not only can you increase your physical health, but you can improve your mental health as well. Through the pillars of wellness, you can pursue a full and active lifestyle that allows your body to do its job of repairing and restoring.
When the US was drafting soldiers for WWI, dental disease was declared a national security risk because these soldiers were not fit to fight in wars overseas with such dangerous infections and high pain levels. Since then, tooth brushing was introduced and dental professionals started working to find solutions to the root problems of dental disease. In their research, ways to report decayed teeth were found and even the field of dental hygiene was introduced. Dental hygienists have since played a pivotal role in removing bacteria that cause oral disease before it even starts.
We’ve made incredible progress–dental infections are no longer in the top 10 causes of deaths! By educating our patients to take control of their dental health, we have seen entire generations change the trajectory of the next. We take pride on being prevention experts. Preventative medicine is the frontline and reparative medicine is the final defense. As you consider boosting your immunity, know that your periodontal health affects your systemic health and we can help you fight infections before they start. Activate your pursuit of total wellness today!
oral INFLAMMATION IS a SNAP SHOT to systemic health
The signs of inflammation are redness, heat, swelling, and pain. As dental clinicians, we check the tissues for signs of inflammation. This is important because inflammation in the tissues of the mouth is a snap shot of what is going on at the cellular level throughout the body. We are able to gather information by assenting the tissues that support the teeth and see what is going on in your cardiovascular, immune, and digestive systems. Additionally, while inflammation in the gums doesn’t hurt on its own, when there is pain during a basic cleaning, it is a sign of inflammation that requires more investigation. Bleeding gums is another sign of inflammation that indicates ulceration and whether or not an infection has progressed.
