How long has it been since you've had your teeth checked? You may be surprised to learn that your oral health can impact the rest of your body, contributing to inflammation and impacting your fertility outcomes. 

As my teeth were being cleaned at my last dental check up, I was fascinated to hear my holistic dentist, Dr Vanessa Platt, chat about this topic. Once I rinsed, spat and could speak again, naturally I asked her to come onto the podcast to share this important info with you all. 

Dr. Vanessa Platt qualified at Kings College London in 2002 and immigrated to Australia in 2005 after practicing for a few years around Cambridgeshire .

Dr Platt was a clinical lecturer at the Adelaide University Dental Hospital lecturing undergraduate dental students in the disciplines of general dentistry and oral diagnosis.  As an undergraduate, Dr Platt conducted research into amalgam toxicity for her dissertation she has always had a particular interest in holistic aspects of health in relation to the teeth and mouth .

Her focus is on making a positive contribution to the oral health of patients and caring for patients to help them achieve their overall health goals and Dr Platt is an active member of International Academy Of Oral Medicine.

In episode 32 of the Glowing Mumma Thriving Bubba podcast, Dr Platt covers:

  •  The importance of oral health, particularly throughout preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding stages of life.
  • What you should consider in your preconception stage of life when it comes to your teeth.
  • Foundational health practises to enhance oral health.
  • Simple hacks to protect your teeth from acidic foods and drinks (like lemon water and apple cider vinegar).
  • A natural remedy to soothe sensitive teeth and bleeding gums.
