What are the connections between oral health and the rest of your body?
Over the past 10 years we’ve learned a lot about the connection between oral health and systemic health. The connection between the two is really important because the same blood that goes through our gums and our tissue goes through the rest of our body. Other things that are affected in the body, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, low birth weight babies, can also have a correlation between gum disease and the tissue in our mouth.
