“Dr.Urbanski combines a passion for mind-body health with a commitment to providing the very best in periodontal services and technologies. She has one of the most state-of-the-art practices in Connecticut, and has published a book on mind-body medicine called ‘Mind and Medicine: In Harmony for Healing'” and we were excited to welcome her to our office for a Lunch & Learn event on Periodontitis. Take a peek at our team with Dr.Urbanski following our learning session.
Periodontics is a continually adapting field that that is dynamic with new developments in technology and an improved understanding of the correlation between the mouth and other diseases. This phenomenon was discussed at length with our team and is called the perio-systemic link. The perio-systemic link is making more and more connections between different ailments and periodontal disease.
Please do consider the severity of periodontal disease. It not only compromised your dentition and the health of your teeth, but also the rest of your mind and body.
Some important prevention strategies are:
- Waterpik Water Flossers
- Sonicare Electric Toothbrushes
- Antimicrobial Rinses (such as Listerine or a prescribed Peridex rinse)
- More Frequent Dental Cleanings (every 3-4 months vs. every 6 months)
- Flossing Regularly
