Did you know that more than 67% of the world’s population have some kind of periodontal disease that often lead to serious systemic chronic conditions such as Heart Disease, Stroke, Pancreatic Cancer, Alzheimer’s and much more? Did you know that your oral health offers clues about your overall health — or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body? Oral diseases ranging from dental caries (cavities) to oral cancers cause pain and disability for millions of Americans. A growing body of evidence has linked oral health, particularly periodontal (gum) disease, to several chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
What conditions may be linked to oral health?
Your oral health might contribute to various diseases and conditions, including:
- Endocarditis. Endocarditis is an infection of the inner lining of your heart (endocardium). Endocarditis typically occurs when bacteria or other germs from another part of your body, such as your mouth, spread through your bloodstream and attach to damaged areas in your heart.
- Cardiovascular disease. Some research suggests that heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke might be linked to the inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause.
- Pregnancy and birth. Periodontitis has been linked to premature birth and low birth weight.
Certain conditions also might affect your oral health, including:
- Diabetes. Diabetes reduces the body’s resistance to infection — putting the gums at risk. Gum disease appears to be more frequent and severe among people who have diabetes. Research shows that people who have gum disease have a harder time controlling their blood sugar levels, and that regular periodontal care can improve diabetes control.
- Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis — which causes bones to become weak and brittle — might be linked with periodontal bone loss and tooth loss. Drugs used to treat osteoporosis carry a small risk of damage to the bones of the jaw.
- Alzheimer’s disease. Worsening oral health is seen as Alzheimer’s disease progresses.
Let’s Talk Health just returned from the National Cancer Control Convention where we secured an exclusive partnership with the inventors of the Kyoui Sonic 3000 Oral Hygiene System – The world’s most advanced and patented oral health device on the market today. The Kyoui Sonic 3000 Oral Hygiene System was developed to facilitate brushing teeth as recommended by dentists and hygienists in a “vertical” motion. Most people brush their teeth in a “back and forth” motion that causes oral health issue such as gingivitis. This advanced system has numerous patents and is acclaimed in the industry. Here is a researched based recommendation:
“The Kyoui Sonic 3000 Oral Hygiene System is a real revolution in the world of dental hygiene. We clinically tested the Kyoui Oral Hygiene System on 100 patients to analyze how they feel about it and more importantly, the results regarding their oral health. Feedback from these patients was very good regarding ease of use and 99% of them found it very comfortable. We saw incredible results, especially for those with retainers, gum problems and stained teeth. I highly recommend Kyoui sonic 3000 for better dental hygiene and healthier gums.”
