We now recognize many important connections between oral health and systemic health. If improving and maintaining oral health can ultimately improve overall health, that’s exciting. As a matter of fact, if a healthy mouth could lead to a healthier patient, then medical costs would go down.
Links have been established between oral health and overall health in patients with diabetes, coronary and cardiovascular disease, respiratory ailments and pregnancy. As most oral diseases are amenable to prevention and as science continues to confirm that more aggressive dental intervention produces better medical outcomes, we need to maximize prevention to benefit our patients’ overall health and well being.
The mouth naturally harbors oral bacteria, and if it’s not kept in control, this bacteria will affect other parts of the body, creating inflammatory problems–infections. All these can be controlled with good oral hygiene.
