The Mouth/Body Connection

The Mouth-Body Connection

For a video walkthrough click here: http://perio.org/consumer/Systemic021711.swf

Recent research supports what dental professionals have long suspected: Infections in the mouth affect the rest of the body. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other infections in the body; however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may link periodontal disease to other chronic conditions.

There is an association between periodontal diseases and other chronic inflammatory conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.
