InViteⓇ Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Amanda Williams, MPH
Having good oral health is so much more than just a bright white smile and having no cavities. Today, I want to talk about the impact of periodontal disease and what you can be doing when it comes to your oral health.†
Why is oral health so important?
Oral hygiene is more impactful on our health than just oral health. It’s been linked to heart health, blood sugar health, kidney health, brain health and bone health. We know that we have to pay attention when it comes to oral health and we have to make sure we are helping to regulate any type of inflammation that is occurring.†

Chronic, low-grade, systemic inflammation is a major indicator for all chronic diseases. Periodontal disease can trigger this type of inflammation. This is why it is so important to make sure you are maintaining the health of your oral cavities and gums.†
Taking care of your mouth can come down to multiple factors, including both diet and supplementation. Taking something such as our Probiotic HxⓇ on a regular basis allows us to maintain a healthy microbiome. We can also look at the dental care products we are using.†
Turning to natural dental care products
When we think about all the different chemicals that we expose ourselves to, we often overlook things like toothpaste and mouthwash. We don’t want to be adding in chemicals when we have alternatives that are coming from nature.†
This is why we offer our PerioDentalⓇ White TEAth Gel. This contains white tea, which offers EGCG. EGCG is a very powerful antioxidant that helps to fend off oxidative stress and free radicals within the mouth. This helps us support a healthy balance of bacteria.†

By utilizing the White TEAth Gel everyday as your toothpaste, you’re going to get this wonderful antioxidant power from the white tea extract, but it also has coenzymeQ10, zinc and Vitamin C. When we think about the wound-healing properties and cross-linking of collagen, we know that we have to have both Vitamin C and zinc.†
This tooth gel also contains a wonderful blend of different herbal extracts, including myrrh, olive leaf extract and peppermint oil. This helps to optimize the overall microbial environment, while also allowing for a lovely, natural way to clean your teeth.†
In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH discusses our White TEAth Gel formula. She explains the powerful nutrients that are included in this toothpaste, as well as why oral health is so important for overall wellness.†
