Oral and Systemic Disease

Recently, it has been recognised that oral infection, especially gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis) may affect the course and pathogenesis of a number of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes mellitus and low birth weight.

In fact research points to gum disease as being a major risk factor to all of the above. This means that taking care of your dental health can result in positive effects of your overall systemic health and wellbeing and should be seen as part of the holistic big picture to obtaining optimum human health.
