The Importance of Health and the Mouth
The health of your mouth is inexorably connected to the health of the rest of your body. We believe that understanding this connection more acutely will help our clients to get healthy, stay healthy and keep their beautiful smile intact.
Systemic Health and it’s Connection to Oral Health
Most people don’t know that the mouth is a window to your overall health.
For this reason maintaining your oral health and getting regular preventive treatment, is as important in creating a healthy lifestyle as visiting the gym, going for a yearly physical, yoga, running, or taking care of your nutrition.
There are evidence-based correlations between gum disease and certain medical conditions, such as:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Pre-term births
- Alzheimer’s disease
