‘‘I have always been into physical fitness and total body health. Throughout this time, I had been treating sleep apnea patients. I knew the best solution for some patients isn’t an oral appliance — it’s weight loss. I started offering to help my patients with the same turnkey wellness program I started with, but I knew I needed something more than my dental degree to guide them into customized plans."
Total Body Wellness & Gum Disease
Patients who consume a lot of sugary foods and beverages give the harmful bacteria in their mouth fuel to grow and put themselves at risk of developing gum disease. These bacteria feed on starch and create an acidic by-product that can cause damage to your smile. Liquids that are filled with sugar can also get into hard-to-reach areas in your mouth where bacteria can thrive. The results are cavities and gum damage that’ll require periodontal treatment.
How Dr. Nosti Can Help
Total Body Wellness & Sleep Apnea
Science has continued to uncover the connection between oral health and the body. For dentists, they’re among the first to recognize the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or a sleep breathing disorder (SBD). There’s a widely known correlation between obesity and developing sleep apnea. By managing one’s weight along with professional treatment, patients can begin to manage their symptoms and achieve a peaceful rest.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can my teeth impact my physical health?
Yes! The bacteria responsible for dental decay and inflammation can enter the bloodstream through your teeth and gums. This can damage your body and cause serious complications like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Your dentist can help you improve your teeth by setting up a consistent oral hygiene routine that’ll also protect your overall physical wellness.
Will lowering my blood pressure help with my oral health?
Lowering your blood pressure can have many benefits for your oral health and physical well-being. This change can help enhance the recovery period after undergoing dental surgery and make you a better candidate for certain treatments like dental implants. Your dentist will be able to help you manage your blood pressure and improve your smile by creating a wellness plan or recommending certain nutritional habits.
How can a nutrition plan help with improving my teeth?
Your dentist will be able to help you set up a nutrition plan after reviewing your overall health history. Afterward, they’ll talk with you about your health issues and wellness goals to develop a plan that best complements your needs. This can include nutritional education, fitness, exercise planning, and more to get you started in the right direction.
What foods should I eat to boost my oral health?
Try adding foods that are high in calcium and protein to boost your oral health. Items such as low-fat cheese, low-fat milk, plain yogurt, and leafy greens can give your body the nutrients that it needs to maintain your teeth. Meats including eggs, fish, and poultry can protect your enamel and improve bone density in your jaw and oral cavity.
