Impact of Oral Health on Overall Health

To understand the impact that oral health has on overall health, it’s best to visualize the mouth as the body’s largest doorway. When you think about it like that, it’s easy to see how infection can spread from the mouth to the body. We tend to think of our teeth as strong and invincible, but the reality is leaving them to fend for themselves can do serious harm in the long-term.

There is a term recognized by both medical and dental professionals known as the oral-systemic link. The term was coined after the discovery of a connection between oral infection with serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, accelerated obesity Alzheimer’s and more.

There are over 700 strains of bacteria that can occur in the mouth that we can’t see, taste or feel. These bacteria can manifest in pockets in the mouth, resulting in infection that spreads to the body. Proper diet, good homecare and regular dental checkups are crucial for maintaining overall wellness.
