Breast Cancer Patients Offered Free Dental Screening after Study Links Gum Disease to Breast Cancer Risk

Breast cancer patients are being offered a free dental screening during national Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, after a study links gum disease to a 14% increased risk for the disease.

“Studies linking gum disease to an increased risk for breast cancer and other diseases imply that a biological dentist should be a part of every cancer patient’s medical care team,” said Dr. Alireza Panahpour, one of the world’s most experienced biological dentists.

Women with gum disease are 14% more likely to develop cancer according to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, inspiring a Seattle-area dentist to offer a free high-tech dental screening for breast cancer patients in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and National Dental Hygiene Month in October. For a complimentary screening, anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer can call for an appointment at Systemic Dentist at 888-338-6336 or email info(at)systemicdentist(at)com.

“Studies linking gum disease to an increased risk for breast cancer and other diseases imply that a biological dentist should be a part of every cancer patient’s medical care team,” said Dr. Alireza Panahpour, one of the world’s most experienced holistic and biological dentists.“There is a strong connection between disease of the mouth and disease in the rest of the body.”

Seattle-area naturopaths have been referring patients fighting chronic diseases such as breast cancer to dentists equipped with special 3-D Cone Scan technology to detect dental factors that could be contributing to the disease. The strategy is to remove any burdens on the body’s immune system.

The technology used for this test is a 3-D cone beam scan, regularly used by prosthodontists and biological dentists in placement of dental implants. It offers a 3 dimensional view of bone and soft tissue that is better able to detect infection of any kind, including gum disease, that is ordinarily missed during a regular dental exam. Patients may not even be aware that they have gum disease when it doesn’t hurt because the bacteria is hiding deep inside of old root canals or tooth extraction site, where the nerve of the tooth has been removed.
