Age With Style explores the importance of oral health in-depth from a holistic, functional medicine perspective. This book shows just how synonymous your oral health is to overall health and shines a light on vibrant living through a green lifestyle.
ForbesBooks Author Nammy Patel, DDS has been practicing holistic dental care since she founded her San Francisco practice, Green Dentistry, in 2005. As a pioneer in the field of holistic dentistry, Dr. Nammy is on a mission to educate people on the importance of maintaining oral health and show that excellent dental care and environmentally friendly practices do go hand-in-hand.
Did you know studies show that people who keep their own teeth live, on average, 10 years longer? Part of the reason for this astonishing outcome is that oral health impacts more than just the teeth and gums; it’s an integral part of your overall health.
When people don’t take care of their oral health, they make it more likely for tooth decay, tooth loss, and bacterial build-up to occur, which have been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, shortened life span, and more. In Age With Style, Dr. Nammy explores these topics along with others we typically don’t connect to our oral health at all, including sleep apnea, nutrition and exercise, stress, allergic reactions, medications, and hormones. From a holistic perspective, it’s all interrelated.
In her book, Dr. Nammy discusses dentistry that’s effective yet conscious of using safe, non-toxic chemicals and compounds. She explains how some widespread materials commonly used in dental care, including certain metals, composites, and amalgams, can be deleterious to health.
The holistic dentistry approach is one that’s preventative. This may be expensive up front, but it saves money in the long run; Dr. Nammy goes into why. She also has tips on overcoming “dental anxiety,” and discusses your teeth, your bite, and the power of a smile from a holistic, functional approach.
