As scientific research continues to delve into the causes of cancerous diseases, more and more evidence points toward oral health as a key player in their prevention. At LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania in Collegeville and Williamsport, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo and his team place an immense amount of emphasis on disease prevention and treatment related to both oral and systemic health. Dr. DiGiallorenzo helps his patients maintain optimal health via a variety of methods, reducing the risk of cancer through proper oral hygiene and the use of holistic care and homeopathic alternatives whenever possible.
Oral Bacteria and Cancer: What’s the Connection?
It has been relatively common knowledge among members of the dental and medical community for years that periodontal disease can lead to a host of other health problems. Untreated gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, pulmonary hypertension, dementia, and complications with pregnancy and diabetes, making it one of the most severe preventable oral health concerns faced by Americans today.
Now, however, even more evidence continues to surface regarding bacterial pathogens present in the mouth and the increased risk for certain cancers. Always keeping abreast of the latest advancements in the dental care industry, Dr. DiGiallorenzo offers effective, holistic care to his patients, greatly improving their bodies’ ability to ward off serious illnesses and possibly even cancer.
When a patient is suffering from gum disease, time is of the essence. The earlier that the disease is detected, diagnosed and treated, the better the patient’s chances are of full recovery. In addition to healing the gums with revolutionary LANAP procedures, we may recommend antibacterial therapy, nutritional therapy to promote immune system efficacy, oil pulling for healthy teeth and gums, and enzyme suppression to prevent unnecessary breakdown of tissues throughout the body.
