The importance of the health of our teeth and gums is becoming increasingly recognised. Inflamed gums could be a mirror to serious inflammatory processes going on in the body—or it could be itself the trigger point for a range of chronic conditions, including heart problems, arthritis and even some cancers.
The Dental Handbook investigates a wide range of issues and ailments associated with our gums and teeth, from mercury fillings, root canals, and other dental practices.
In addition, it explains how mercury fillings can be safely removed, the effect of fluoride on our teeth and overall health, and explores the approach of holistic dentistry.
