Say AHHHHhhhhhh…

The documentary film Say AHHHHhhhhhh… featuring the Atlanta Dental Spa team will be released this fall.

Say AHHHHhhhhhh… is an educational and interesting work that explains the role your mouth plays in regards your overall health and wellness in very simple terms. Your mouth is the gateway to your body and to your health. I had the privilege of viewing the documentary while in it’s last edits. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!

At Atlanta Dental Spa, we are Complete Health Dentists, and we practice complete health dentistry every day. However as a Complete Health Dentist, I am so immersed in my practice that I struggle to illustrate how significantly an unhealthy mouth affects the systems of the whole body.

I am so thankful for this film because it depicts the process of how gum disease and tooth decay lead to heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and premature births. The film also educates viewers on oral cancer and sleep apnea. America is one of the most unhealthy countries in the world despite its high expenditures on healthcare. More than half of American adults have unhealthy mouths.

As healthcare costs in this country rise, insurance premiums increase, and chances of finding quality care decrease. This is scary news for a population of severely unhealthy individuals. This film will help communities better understand the oral-systemic link and the importance of oral health to maintaining overall wellness. It is my hope as a complete health dentist that viewers will absorb this information for all of its value and translate it into a drive to attain their own optimal level of health and wellness. The good news is that this documentary reminds you that you already have tools to take control of your own health. We can free ourselves from healthcare costs as well as the need for invasive procedures and drugs. 

We can prevent these diseases from affecting us and we can even reverse our own diseases to a large extent. It all starts with your mouth!
