02 Aug Welcome to National Wellness Month
Most people don’t automatically think of dental care as part of a wellness routine. The dedicated team of healthcare professionals at HAB Dental in Boynton Beach, Florida, as well as the staff at our Boca Raton dental office, want you to know that it’s time to flip the switch on that kind of thinking. And National Wellness Month seems like an ideal opportunity to get the message across.
The focus of National Wellness Month is on self-care. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a bubble bath after a particularly stressful day at work, but self-care is much more than stress relief. It’s about making healthy choices and making wellness part of your everyday routines.
As the experts at WebMD Health Services say in their blog on National Wellness Month, “Well-being is not a one-time event. It’s an ongoing practice of small, daily acts that allow you to manage stress, be more productive, and feel happier and healthier.”
Brush Up on Your Wellness Routine
At the Mayo Clinic, they believe that your oral health is a window to your overall health.
They go on to state that your oral health can contribute to a variety of health issues, including:
- Endocarditis: an infection of the inner lining of your heart chambers or valves.
- Cardiovascular disease: “Although the connection is not fully understood, some research suggests that heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke might be linked to the inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause,” the Mayo Clinic’s experts say.
- Pregnancy and birth complications: Both premature birth and low birth weight have been linked to gum disease.
- Pneumonia and other respiratory diseases: The bacteria in your mouth make their way into your lungs.
When it comes to caring about the overall wellbeing of patients, HAB Dental is the best in Boynton Beach. That commitment to your care has traveled with Dr. Rosemary Baghdassarian to Boca Raton, where HAB Dental is getting top marks from the community.
