Oral Health Considerations
Oral Health - Systemic Health Connection
Research has shown us the connection between the oral health and systemic health. The mouth is a window into the health of the body. Today, not only do we now realize that physical conditions such as diabetes, poor nutrition and smoking have a very real impact on oral health, we are also seeing new studies every day on how poor oral health can contribute to such physical conditions as heart disease, diabetes and complications during pregnancy. In fact, the dental headlines today scream about the oral – systemic connection.
