The Surprising Connections Between Oral Health & Well Being

Maintaining good dental health extend far beyond just your mouth. There is a growing body of research that suggests a synergic relationship between oral health and overall wellness.

The mouth is both the primary pathway into the body and an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive. Normally the body’s natural defences and good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, keep the bacteria under control. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, for example, tooth decay and gum disease.

Ongoing inflammation in your mouth can allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream, which may lead to more inflammation in other parts of your body. Studies have shown that gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory infection, dementia and rheumatoid arthritis. Pregnant women with periodontitis (a severe form of gum disease) may be at increased risk of complications such as premature birth, and low birth weight. Even simple cavities can lead to loss of appetite, decreased focus, and depression.

Every part of our body needs and should be cared for. Just like poor oral health can contribute to other medical conditions, the reverse is true too. There are some diseases and disorders that can cause oral health problems. A good routine dental check-up is equally important as regular health screening. Early detection, followed by treatment and good control of the condition can result in better outcomes.
