ALLEN, Texas, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Early diagnosis is the key to successful treatment of most diseases. Once health problems have had a chance to take hold they become harder to cure, which results in more rigorous procedures such as drugs and surgery.
With the latest diagnostic tools available, a trip to the dentist becomes not only the way you maintain healthy teeth and gums, but a method of detection and diagnosis relating the health of your whole body. Most people visit their dentists at least twice as frequently as they do their doctors. And now that visit can open the door to whole body health.
Whole Health Dentistry recognizes the mouth is a part of the whole person.
As Dr. Namrita Singh explains in her book, Whole Health Dentistry: Why Your Mouth is the Key to Your Body's Health, "The problem is that most of us see the mouth and its health as a separate entity from the rest of the body. I want to emphasize that although the mouth is a vital, sensitive organ that requires its own specialization, it is still a part of the body."
With a dental examination by a skilled dentist using the current available diagnostic tools and procedures, such as oral DNA and scans, patients can be screened for various inflammatory diseases, cancer, sleep apnea, TMJ, STD virus, airway obstructions and more.
The field of dentistry has come a long way and now stands beside other medical practices in its importance to disease detection and the Whole Body Health of the individual.
Namrita Singh, DMD is the author of the popular book entitled: Whole Health Dentistry: Why Your Mouth is the Key to Your Body's Health, available at Amazon.com. She is also owner of Allen Whole Health Dentistry in Allen, Texas.
Her practice philosophy: My practice philosophy is based on "Whole Health Beyond the Mouth."
