(Minisode 37) A Functional Approach to Cavities and Root Canals

The biggest misconception when it comes to tooth decay is that it’s an infection of harmful bacteria, in large part from eating sugar—but it’s not. Tooth decay actually results when the body doesn’t have adequate fat-soluble vitamins, which causes an imbalance of the oral microbiome. 

In this week’s mini-episode, I sit down with Dr. Steven Lin and Dr. Rouzita Rashtian to talk about the connection between our oral health and overall health. We discuss how tooth decay is a condition we can prevent, and how we have the ability to heal cavities and reverse tooth decay in certain circumstances. We also talk about root canals and what you can do to avoid having one. 

Dr. Steven Lin is a world-leading authority in the field of Functional Dentistry and the author of, The Dental Diet: The Surprising Link between Your Teeth, Real Food, and Life-Changing Natural Health.

Dr. Rouzita Rashtian is a biological dentist and surgeon. Her focus is on holistic and biological dentistry; the philosophy recognizing the teeth and associated structures as part of the whole body. In her practice, she uses minimally invasive techniques to preserve healthy tooth structure and incorporates laser technology and ozone therapy.

If I had to pick one supplement that has made the biggest difference in my overall health, it would be magnesium. I personally started taking magnesium to help with my sleep, especially when I travel, and it’s been a game changer. But I don’t take just any old magnesium, I take BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough. It contains 7 different forms of magnesium, which all have different functions in the body. I haven’t found anything else like it on the market. Right now, BiOptimizers is offering my community a few special bundles, just head over to https://magbreakthrough.com/dhru, with code DHRU10. 

I hope you enjoyed this conversation as much as I did.
Wishing you health and happiness.
