ORAL-SYSTEMIC HEALTH

TESTING STARTS IN THE MOUTH

 
WHAT IS ORAL-SYSTEMIC HEALTH?

"The mouth is the gateway to the body. Plain and simple, many chronic conditions and illnesses first show symptoms in the mouth. The oral-systemic link focuses on detecting, preventing, and treating conditions and illnesses including heart disease, sleep disorders, diabetes, periodontal disease, and more. This can be done by educating dentists and physicians and encouraging them to collaborate to cure."

Dental Tools in Pocket

"Numerous studies have demonstrated the cardiovascular risk from Periodontitis is driven by the pathogen burden as opposed to only clinical exam findings such as pocket depth, bleeding on probing and bone loss."

THE BREAKTHROUGH

THE ANSWER

"Understanding that high-risk periodontal pathogens are causal of Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease places an onus upon our dental colleagues to continue their efforts to develop affordable, reproducible, objective testing for high-risk periodontal pathogens."
