The connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy body
from The Lakewood Observer
During the past few years, a strong link between oral health and overall health has been proven by several studies. Specifically, the bacteria and inflammation found in patients with periodontal disease has been shown to play a role in several systemic diseases. For example, evidence has linked oral bacteria to cardiovascular problems such as heart disease, blocked arteries and stroke. Some studies have shown a link between diabetes and periodontitis as well.
