The Importance of Regular Oral Healthcare

90% of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations, signs and symptoms; including diabetes, pancreatic cancer, heart disease and kidney disease.

Poor oral health has been linked to pneumonia in older adults. By breathing in bacterial droplets from the mouth to the lungs, older adults are more susceptible to the condition.

Medications, or treatments that reduce saliva flow, and antibiotics that disrupt the normal balance of bacteria in your mouth can also compromise your mouth's normal defenses, allowing these bacteria to enter your bloodstream.

When teeth are lost and not replaced with false teeth, the rest of the teeth have a tendency to drift and shift into open spaces creating an uneven jawbone, which in turn can create appearance and bite issues.

Digestion begins with physical and chemical processes in the mouth, and problems here can lead to intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders.
