Oral health is an integral part of your over health.
Clinical studies have proven that bacteria in your mouth can affect your ability to stabilize underlying conditions.
Your oral health can contribute to the development of the following health conditions:
- Pregnancy – low birth weight and premature babies.
- Cardiovascular disease
- Endocarditis- An infection of the inner lining of your heart chamber valves
At the same time, there are conditions that have an effect on your oral health such as:
- Alzheimer disease
- HIV/ AIDS
There are further studies being done that may give an indication that certain cancers and immune system disorders may be linked to our oral health.
