The Importance of Dental Care in Whole Body Health

With Dr. Steven Lin

Have you noticed that some people can have a mouth full of cavities, while others don’t? Which category do you fall in? If you think that brushing and flossing alone will prevent cavities, you might be interested in hearing about the myriad of other ways we can have good oral
health—and how a healthy mouth contributes to a healthy body.

Dr. Steven Lin sits down with host of The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru Purohit, today to talk about functional dentistry. Just how is this different than conventional dentistry? You’ll find out in this podcast. Dhru and Dr. Lin also discuss the history of the development of our jaws, the ecosystem in our mouths, dangers of mouth breathing, what bleeding gums really mean, and many other fascinating topics.

I hope the information in this podcast is helpful to you.
