Dentistry: A Healthy Lifestyle – Newton, Wellesley, MA

Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist and managing director of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners wants his patients to lead a healthy lifestyle and have outstanding oral health.  A recent article in Bicycling Magazine outlined the top ways to stay healthy and a regular visit to your dentist is critical.  According to Dr. Johnson, “A visit to the dentist can make your pearly whites shine—and keep your ticker on track, as well”.  In a recent Taiwanese study people who had their teeth cleaned at least twice a year for 2 years had a 24% lower risk of heart attack and a 13% lower risk of stroke compared with people who never went to the dentist. Professional teeth cleaning appears to reduce inflammation-causing bacterial growth, which can lead to dangerous inflammation, say the study authors.

Here’s the list: 

1.    Eat Calcium Rich Foods
