The Importance of Oral Health

Did you know that your oral health affects your overall health? The problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body. Good oral care is a key to health, so it is very much important to preserve your health by protecting your oral health.

Gum disease is the most common chronic inflammatory condition, yet it’s often a silent disease. The mouth can act as a window of entry for an infection, ongoing inflammation in your mouth can allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream, which may lead to more inflammation in other parts of your body.

A causal relationship is found between oral health and overall wellness. Gum disease is linked to a host of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and rheumatoid arthritis etc.

Oral health is overall health:

  • Cardiovascular disease: Chronic inflammation from gum disease has been associated with the development of cardiovascular problems such as heart disease, blockages of blood vessels, and strokes.
  • Diabetes: We found reciprocal relationship between gum disease and diabetes. When you treat oral diseases, the need for insulin is reduced. And when you treat and control diabetes, immediately the condition in the mouth improves.
  • Respiratory diseases: The oral cavity hosts a highly diverse microbiota. Because of its humidity and temperature, the mouth provides an appropriate environment for the development of organized bacterial communities. Oral bacteria and, especially, periodontal pathogens have been considered as important agents with regard to causing other illnesses including respiratory disease.
  • Alzheimer’s disease: Alzheimer’s is linked to poor oral health. Research has revealed long-term evidence that linked gum inflammation and Alzheimer’s disease; gum disease could increase the risk of cognitive dysfunction.
  • Autoimmune disease: Poor oral health has been linked with the development of infection in other parts of the body. Gum disease has positive association with autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Kidney disease: There is increasing evidence of associations between chronic kidney disease and periodontal disease, with a higher proportion of those with chronic kidney disease having periodontal disease and vice versa. Periodontal disease has emerged as a non-traditional risk factor for chronic kidney disease. Taking proper care and hygiene of your gums may reduce your risk of developing chronic kidney problems.
  • Vision problems: The health of your teeth and gums can dramatically affect your vision. Tooth decay and gum disease often lead to deterioration in vision. The fungal and bacterial infections from root canals and other periodontal infections may directly contribute to vision loss.
