Ticks, Toxins, and Teeth

Ticks, Toxins and Teeth

June 28, 2018 – Roanoke, VA -- Summer in Roanoke brings ticks and tick-borne diseases like Lyme Disease. It also brings rain, heat and high humidity – the essentials for growing mold and diffusion of its toxins. Weather pattern changes during the last few years have brought odd winters and spring weather with torrential rains in brief periods that caused flash flooding. The flooding created unusually fertile sites for mold growth and release of toxins. Unusually high numbers of ticks and conditions that foster mold growth are creating challenges for both the community and for individuals in this area.

Many people in our community do not understand the health risks associated with insect-borne diseases and mold toxins. Arguably, the changing weather conditions are creating a breeding ground for dangerous systemic illnesses in our midst. 4-Word Bound, a local non-profit organization, is stepping in to provide needed information and education to the community by collaborating with local professionals with the specific knowledge of Lyme Disease and of mold-related illnesses to address these issues.

Both mold illnesses and Lyme Disease typically affect a person’s health in a number of ways. These illnesses affect the body and oral health. It may seem odd to speak of ticks and teeth in the same breath or of mold toxins and teeth. But there is a clear and important connection between oral health and general health, according to Dr. Caroline Wallace, DDS of Salem Virginia’s Complete Dental Care.

Dr. Wallace will be the speaker on July 17 for the community information meeting hosted by 4-Word Bound, Inc. The meeting will be held at The Sunscapes office and community room (3635 Sunscape Drive, Roanoke, VA 24018), and begins promptly at 6:30 pm. Dr. Wallace will offer a presentation entitled “Ticks, Toxins and Teeth.” “At Complete Dental Care we do not just fix teeth,” she says, “but look at the total health of the individual and how oral health interacts with general health.”

Dr. Wallace points out that as early as 1900, doctors began to recognize the importance of a healthy mouth for a healthy body. This connection has received far more attention in recent years. “We have learned that illness elsewhere in the body typically has some effect on oral health, and that the bacteria associated with decaying teeth and gum disease also affect general health because those bacteria are then carried throughout the body through the bloodstream.”

In her presentation on July 17, Dr Wallace will speak of this general knowledge and she will focus on the effects of environmental illnesses (mold-related illness and the introduction of mold-generated toxins into the body and on the effects of tick-borne illness) on oral health and of oral health on overall health. There will be ample opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
