Functional dentist Dr. Mark Burhenne wants you to forget what you think you know about oral health. With 35 years of clinical experience, Mark is passionate about educating the industry and the public about the vital importance of functional dentistry to our overall health. Known internationally as Dr. B, Mark is one of the world’s leading authorities in functional dentistry, is the author of ‘The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox’, and has a huge Instagram following on his page @askthedentist, where he shares game-changing tips on how best to care for our health via our mouths. 

In this eye-opening conversation, Dr. Burhenne shares his insights into how the influence of our oral microbiome has been underestimated for way too long, and how a healthy mouth will help us age better. 

In this episode we ask the question, could the health of our oral microbiome be a crucial piece of the aging well puzzle?

Join Shelley for episode #4 of Season Two of The Aging Project Podcast, as she chats to Dr. Burhenne about:

  • How what happens in our mouths can age us prematurely

 

  • How functional dentistry differs from the traditional approach we’re used to

 

  • How the division between medicine and dentistry is counter-productive and harmful, and how collaboration between doctors and dentists can vastly improve patient outcomes

 

  • The link between gum disease and dementia

 

  • How oral inflammation causes inflammation in the body

 

  • How oral microbiome testing is beginning to improve oral care in the USA

 

  • The products you’re probably using every day that are damaging your oral microbiome

 

  • His top tips for creating and maintaining a healthy oral microbiome

 

  • The dangers of fluoride

 

  • The four top enemies of a healthy mouth

 

  • The crucial importance of nose-breathing to longevity and dental health

 

  • The things we can do right now to start improving our oral microbiome and dental health
