Dental Meridian Tooth Chart
Many patients are unaware of the link between the mouth and the body. Periodontal disease that forms in the smile can increase ones risk for other medical problems such as heart disease, strokes, and diabetes. However, there is another way to link the mouth and body—through the Meridian Tooth Chart. The Meridian Tooth Chart is used by dental professionals such as Dr. Ingber of Metropolitan Dental Centers and can help patients make a visual link from teeth to body. This chart application available here on our website can allow patients to choose a particular tooth and see how it affects the body. Dentists are able to use this chart to diagnose other problems, or can find a problem within a tooth by knowing about ones overall health and wellness.
