Today on Holistic Dentistry, we’re explaining osteoporosis and dental treatment — both its challenges and solutions — including the aging process, plus medical foods, ingredients, and supplementation to build and maintain long-term bone density. We provide various solutions for osteoporosis, and answer questions around potential impacts and length of medication use.
In this episode, Dr. Sanda explains why she doesn’t consider osteoporosis a disease, but rather, a condition. Specifically, one where bone mineral density and bone mass of the facial structure decreases as we age. Then, we dive into bisphosphonate treatment, and how to treat osteoporosis from a nutritional perspective. Lastly, we detail the importance of collagen, and provide jaw bone exercise tips to help maintain bone mineral density.
