WHY FOCUS ON ORAL-SYSTEMIC HEALTH?


In recent years, oral health has moved more into the spotlight of preventative, long-term healthcare. More and more studies are discovering the oral-system connection between the mouth and the body.


Guiding and supporting your patient's oral health is critical. Oral health can be a contributing factor when it comes to developing diseases and conditions such as:

  • Endocarditis

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Pneumonia

  • Diabetes

  • Osteoporosis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Certain Cancers

  • Sjogren's Syndrome

  • Autoimmune Disorders

  • Alzheimer's


According to the survey, about 3 in 5 (59%) adults made a preventive visit in 2021 to reduce their chances of experiencing serious dental issues. As preventative care is on the rise, it's time for the dental community to rise to the opportunity, providing support and education to patients to help foster healthier healthspans for patients.


READY TO BECOME A LIFEGUARD FOR YOUR PATIENTS?


Dental hygienists are the front line of defense when it comes to oral patient care. Their job is to understand their patient's health from a comprehensive standpoint --- which will require asking probing questions, taking extra time to perform lifesaving exams, and educating patients on the connection between oral health and creating a long, happy healthspan.
