Numerous studies performed on the relationship between dental and systemic health have linked periodontal disease to health conditions such as cardiovascular. In fact, not only is periodontal disease linked to cardiovascular disease, it is an independent risk factor.
To help patients improve both their dental and general health, Dr. Jason C. Campbell urges dental professionals to teach on the role of gum inflammation in cardiovascular disease.
It is safe to assume that many of the patients who visit your office have minimal knowledge of their oral health, particularly its connection to their overall wellbeing. If you were to tell a patient that their tartar-inspired gum inflammation correlates to an existing heart condition, they will most likely question how such a small amount of plaque on their smile could possibly impact the plaque in their arteries.
However, if these patients have the resources and instructions to help them comprehend the role of oral care in systemic health, they can take the necessary steps to improve their bodies as a whole and prevent the conditions that too often result in extensive dental reconstruction.
At Advanced Prosthetics Institute, Dr. Jason C. Campbell offers courses on the science of compounding dental, facial, and general procedures to create comprehensive treatment plans that target chronic conditions at their source.
