Dental Health is Essential for Gut Health

Dr. Mark Iwanicki May 3, 2021

For some people who experience chronic H. Pylori infections the answer may lie in the mouth not the gut. H. Pylori is a bacteria that can cause low stomach acid, gut inflammation, ulcers and stomach cancer. For some people who treat this bug it can often times come back. The answer may be that it’s also living in your mouth.

We often forget how vitally important dental health is to systemic health. Even as natural and functional medicine docs we often times ignore this crucial piece to the health puzzle. This is just one example of how important dental health is to our gut and systemic health.
