Oral-Systemic Health in Dubbo

Dentist with patientDid you know that your oral health is closely linked to your overall wellbeing? It’s called the oral-systemic connection, and it means the health of your mouth can impact your entire wellbeing. Similarly, systemic health conditions can also affect your oral health.

One example of this connection is periodontal disease, which has been linked to various conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Although direct causality is still being studied, numerous associations have been found between periodontitis and systemic diseases.

Both periodontal and systemic diseases share common risk factors. For instance, smoking and a poor diet can increase the risk of developing both oral and systemic health issues. Taking care of your mouth’s health by practicing good oral hygiene, such as regular brushing and flossing, along with routine dental checkups, can contribute to maintaining overall wellness.

The Importance of Prioritising Your Oral Health

It’s important to remember that your mouth is not isolated from the rest of your body. By recognising the oral-systemic connection and prioritising oral health, you can take proactive steps towards promoting your overall health and wellbeing.
