How much is general health affected by oral health?
from The Conversation
Bad oral health can have a significant negative impact on people's quality of life. It can also affect other diseases that they may be suffering. But whether oral ill-health causes general health problems depends on what disease you're talking about. People with untreated oral and dental diseases can experience severe pain, loss of sleep, inability to eat certain foods, time off work or school and embarrassment about their appearance. These diseases can accelerate the progress and severity of other illnesses, which makes it even more important that we do all we can to ensure everyone has access to affordable dental care.
