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."
"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."
"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."
High Risk Pathogen Test
Just 1ml of saliva delivers highly quantitative results on the five bacteria considered to be the highest risk pathogens for periodontitis, and systemic inflammation:
Aa, Pg, Td, Tf, & Fn.
HR5 was born out of years of research, numerous scientific publications, and decades of clinical experience.
EDUCATION & INSIGHT
The future of Oral Systemic Health resides in both patient and clinician education. While testing, treatment, and best practices are evolving rapidly, we have partnered with the following organizations to help bring this emerging field to life.
After years of outreach, Oral-Systemic Health has moved beyond dentistry and is now an active discussion across specialties including cardiovascular, neurological, obstetrics, anti-aging, and beyond. Explore the resources below and join us in changing lives.
