PEP 39: Oral Myth Busting: The Truth About Teeth Whitening, Activated Charcoal and Mouthwash with Dr. Al Danenberg
What if everything you thought you knew about taking care of your mouth was wrong? With an astonishing 90% of US adults having some form of gum disease, the latest research has shown that many popular oral care practices might be harmful to your health. From the traditional to the trendy, the way most people go about taking care of their teeth, gums and tongue may be setting them up for major health problems like high blood pressure. In the age of high tech toothbrushes and advanced dentistry, why is this happening? With newer medical explorations like gut health catching on with the public, science is starting to recognize that having a healthy microbiome is a huge component of oral health as well. This contradicts the standard narrative of keeping your mouth free of typical dental villains like plaque. Considering that conventional approaches probably aren't doing us any favors, where does this leave more "natural" alternatives to oral care? Surprisingly, many of these products aren't without their own side effects. Trendy approaches to whitening like activated charcoal and bentonite clay have their own sets of biological downsides, which suggests the need for a more comprehensive, inclusive approach to oral health care. In episode 39, we interview periodontist and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner Dr. Al Danenberg about all things oral health and debunk myths surrounding the mouth's connection to overall health.
