A Closer Look at Oral Systemic Health
Oral-systemic health, also known as the mouth-body connection, is a huge buzzword in today’s dentistry and medical fields. In short, it refers to the concept that the health of the mouth and the health of the body are intimately connected. Certain systemic diseases, like respiratory illnesses, certain cardiovascular disorders, and diabetes can be exacerbated (if not caused) by oral health problems such as gum disease. In addition, your dentist might be the first person to identify the initial signs of certain systemic illnesses, like diabetes or Crohn’s disease, in your mouth or throat. Nearly all the experts agree that by regularly seeking professional dental care and caring for your teeth and gums at home, you can have more control over the health of your whole body.
