Your Fitness, Oral Health & Recovery from Addiction

A great body of research evidence has made clear that looking after your oral health is important for physical health. Now that you are in recovery, you are no doubt motivated to pursue more physical activities to build your body strength and naturally raise endorphins.

A healthy mouth will improve your systemic health by reducing inflammation, provide improved chewing function so you can eat and digest the full range of healthy nutrients, and enable you to confidently engage with the world.

Oral health, systemic health, social health, and exercise are closely interrelated. Your recovery and ability to live an addiction-free life are supported by all four.

One of our local recovery centers, Delray Recovery Center, has shared this blog The Benefits of Exercise in Addiction Recovery. Enjoy the benefits of exercise and improve your oral health in the safety and compassionate care of Jamie J. Alexander, D.D.S., Dentistry for Those in Recovery. Call our Boynton Beach dental office at 561-732-8877 to learn more and schedule an initial complementary consultation with Dr. Alexander.
