The mouth is the gateway to the body. Plain and simple, many chronic conditions and illnesses first show symptoms in the mouth. The oral-systemic link focuses on detecting, preventing, and treating conditions and illnesses, including heart disease, sleep disorders, diabetes, periodontal disease, and more. This can be done by educating dentists and physicians and encouraging them to collaborate to cure.
Dr. DeGregorio provides a variety of oral biofilm testing to determine if your oral cavity is out of balance. Such imbalances can contribute to chronic systemic inflammation and disease. Nutritional counseling and modified lifestyle choices as well as consulting with functional medicine practitioners may be required to obtain the best results for your overall health and longevity. We are here as your guides on your journey to wellness.
