Research links oral health, overall well-being
from Canwest News Service via The Vancouver Sun
Oral health is about more than shining white teeth and sweet breath. It is closely linked to the health of all parts of the body. "The research that has been done over the last few years is showing more and more that there is a considerable link between what's happening in the mouth and the overall health of the body," says British Columbia Dental Hygienists' Association executive director Cindy Fletcher. "Previously, we thought that the most devastating effects of periodontal disease was that people might lose their teeth. Now we know it is much more than that."
