Mouth/Body Connection

The Mouth / Body Connection

The mouth is an indicator of human health. 

A poor oral condition makes way for bacterial and parasitic infections which affect our health.

Don’t put yourself at risk, a thorough assessment can determine whether you have gum disease.  

Appropriate treatments are available.

What we now know … Gum disease can increase your risk to internal disease. 

Bacteria can enter the blood stream and travel to major organs where it can begin new infections, contribute to heart disease, increase the risk of strokes, increase risk of preterm babies, low birth weight and possible miscarriages. Gum inflammation can pose a threat to people with immune deficiencies, diabetes, respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, some cancers and research now shows a link of poor oral health to Alzheimer’s and dementia.
