The Link Between the Body and Dentistry

Let Us Call You to Book an Appointment

In modern dental and medical studies, it has become apparent that oral health and the health of our body are interconnected.

Symptoms such as:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sleep apnoea
  • TMJ
  • Snoring
  • Jaw muscle pain

Can all be connected to dental issues, and can be treated with modern dentistry techniques. Due to this case, preventative dentistry is a key part of maintaining our overall well being. Your mouth is the gateway to the body, and when dental issues such as periodontitis (gum disease) are left untreated, they can contribute to devastating health conditions within the body.
 

Conditions associated with poor dental health include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Bone Loss
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lung Conditions
  • Obesity
  • Sleep Apnoea
  • TMJ

It is important to note that just as poor oral health can influence a health condition in the body, an unhealthy body can also lead to poor oral health. This connection has transformed the way dentists and medical practitioners operate, and has resulted in a strand of healthcare called medical dentistry.
