As you know, there is a strong connection between oral health and your overall health. This is called the oral-systemic connection, unfortunately this means that problems in your mouth can have a negative impact on your health, and vice versa.
In recent years, researchers have learned a lot about the oral-systemic connection. We now know that oral conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay can increase your risk of developing a variety of systemic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and preterm birth.
The good news is that there are things you can do to improve your oral health and reduce your risk of developing these systemic diseases. One of the best things you can do is to see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Your dentist can help you identify and treat any oral problems early on before they have a chance to damage your overall health.
If you are interested in learning more about the oral-systemic connection, We encourage you to attend our upcoming webinar series.
In addition to the webinar series, there are a few other things you can do to learn more about the oral-systemic connection:
