The Connection Between Oral Health and Overall Health

In this video, Dr. Rameek McNair discusses the link between oral health and overall physical health, with a focus on the importance of regular dental care for long-term well-being.

There is a well-documented connection between oral health and overall physical health, highlighting the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene. Research over the past several decades has consistently shown a link between periodontal disease and heart disease. Additionally, various systemic health issues often manifest initially in the mouth, making oral examinations potentially diagnostic for these conditions.

This relationship underscores the significance of regular dental care. Maintaining good oral hygiene isn’t just about preventing cavities or gum disease; it’s also vital for preserving long-term systemic health. Keeping your mouth healthy can contribute significantly to your overall well-being, reinforcing the idea that oral health is an integral part of medical health and should be treated with the same level of importance.
