systemic health problems

Today, there’s more knowledge on oral health and possible systemic disease connections. Scientific evidence continues to mount that gum disease is a useful indicator of other potential health issues, including cardiac, reproductive, and pancreatic health as examples. This research supports the suggestion that poor oral hygiene and inflammation originating in the mouth is a source of systemic health problems.

At Espresso Dental we're committed to addressing this link by educating both ourselves and our patients on emerging information from both the dental and medical communities. Along those lines, you'll find below some links to subjects that Dr. Connie thinks are of particular, current interest.

  • Bisphosphonates
  • Inflammation, Oral Hygiene, and your health
  • Pregnancy and Oral Hygiene
  • Stem Cells and Baby Teeth
