Redondo Beach, CA – Dr. Michael Fulbright, a dentist in Redondo Beach and the director of Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry, is a man on a mission: by the year 2022, Dr. Fulbright wants to improve the health of at least 30,000 people in the Southbay area. In a recent feature in Southbay magazine, Dr. Fulbright discussed this important goal and how collaboration with other health care professionals can help provide individuals with the educational tools they need to understand how diseases and conditions related to oral health can have an effect on one’s general health, as well.
Dr. Fulbright is a firm believer in research that has shown links between oral health conditions and serious diseases affecting total body health, which is why he takes an “oral systemic health” approach to care. He says that inflammation caused by conditions such as gum disease may be linked to a number of chronic, even life-threatening health concerns, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. With this in mind, Dr. Fulbright has developed a selection of services at his practice that includes reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry options, family dental care procedures, and techniques focused on oral systemic health. These options include technologically advanced methods of identifying general oral health problems and addressing them as early as possible before they have a chance to cause potentially serious ramifications to one’s total body wellness.
In addition to identifying and treating conditions such as gum disease, Dr. Fulbright says his practice can also help both adults and children suffering from sleep apnea—a disorder that can cause air passages to constrict while sleeping, leading to serious risks to an individual’s physical and emotional health. In the feature in Southbay magazine, Dr. Fulbright discusses the many ways in which he and his dental team work to help patients with conditions that can affect both oral and general health. Starting with a comprehensive exam, the practice utilizes many of the latest technologies for diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Fulbright notes that options such as genetic testing can identify certain risk factors and help with customizing procedures, and state-of-the-art imaging technology can ultimately lead to more precise diagnoses as well as early, less invasive treatment.
With the advances that have been made in dental care, along with a commitment to providing an attentive, compassionate approach that is built on trust between patients and their dental team, Dr. Fulbright says he hopes to fulfill his goal of making 30,000 people in the Southbay area healthier by 2022: “We’re excited and motivated to help the Southbay community understand all the connections between the mouth and body, and we look forward to building partnerships with other dentists and medical providers to change medicine and improve patients’ health.”
