Oral hygiene affects overall health in so many ways. You find that expectant mothers who have poor oral hygiene or gum disease have babies with lower birth weight. We are finding also with pneumonia or infection of lungs sometimes the bacteria has traveled from the mouth into the lungs. We are also finding correlation with heart disease and lung disease. So just really paying attention and asking questions is how I how I go about trying to make the correlation between their oral health and their general health. I see dentists as physicians of the mouth. The mouth is the gateway to the body. So if the mouth is healthy as the gateway, then the rest of the body can be healthy.
