Mouth and Body Connection
Your oral health and general health are direct related. There are many links between the inflammation that can occur in the mouth and tooth structure and its relationship to other health conditions. Periodontitis has strong evidence of associations with heart disease, diabetes, and adverse pregnancy outcomes, to name a few. When our body is trying to fight the chronic inflammation in the mouth for a long period of time, the immune system weakens and therefore drives other diseases. Periodontitis is the most commom chronic inflammatory disease. If we can stop the inflammation in the oral cavity early through diagnosis and treatment, we can promote health through the rest of our bodies. We all want to live healthy, long lives and that starts with a healthy, happy mouth! Call Power Ranch Dental today (480) 988 2282.
