Convincing Proof of Connections Between Oral & Systemic Health

There was a lot of research done in the last two decades with the goal of finding out if and how a person’s oral health relates to many different systemic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes.

With that in mind, we can now see a mounting quantity of proof that there are numerous connections between oral and systemic health. In the majority of cases, we can see that there are correlations between some oral and systemic conditions, without necessarily establishing causality. One example is the fact that scientists are still working hard to see if diabetes makes periodontal disease worse, or if it is actually the other way around or there might be a yet unknown factor which can cause both conditions.
