Okay I know I am a chiropractor, mouths and teeth are not my forte'.
Think about it this way though, most all our energy and nutritional needs start at our mouth. That is where we put our food. So healthy teeth, healthy gums are very important for overall health. From the minute you wake up and eat breakfast the healthier your mouth is the better chance you have at getting the most out of your proper nutrition.
If we are missing teeth we cannot chew or breakdown our foods properly. If we have periodontal disease the right amounts of saliva don't get mixed in with our food stuffs. See where I am going here.
Do you go to your chiropractor for your teeth? No.
Start with healthy habits; brush your teeth, and floss. Pretty simple. Then make that phone call to your dentist and get in there and see him or her. The healthier your mouth is the more you will get out of that great nutrition we are all eating.
The Rolla area has lots of great dentist. If your back is hurting I am always available.
