Frank K. Eggleston, M.D.
Dr. Frank K. Eggleston specializes in restorative and operative dentistry. In this video, he offers advice on how proper nutrition can help prevent bleeding gums and improves overall gum health.
Dr. Eggleston believes the mouth reflects the state of the body’s overall health and there is a correlation between good nutrition and a healthy mouth, stating, “When we see cavities in the mouth around 10 or 12 cavities, we know that equally bad things are occurring in the general health.” Aside from brushing and flossing, he says that a good diet with proper nutrients plays a major role in the overall health of your teeth and gums.
Dr. Eggleston says that in his 40 years of practice, he has only recommended Juice Plus+® to his patients. As a result of a Juice Plus+ regimen, these patients have returned to him with reductions in periodontal pocket depths and healthier gums.
Dr. Eggleston served on the American Dental Association Board of Trustees and was also President of both the Texas Dental Association and the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry. He was named Dentist of the Year by the Texas Academy of General Dentistry in 1995 and received Distinguished Service awards from the Texas Dental Association. He has been an advocate for removing sugar from diet for wellness and prevention purposes and delivered many public speeches on the topic.
