Raynor Dental

At Raynor Dental, we believe in the oral-systemic connection – the idea that oral health is closely linked to overall health and well-being. Your mouth is not isolated from the rest of your body; instead, it is connected to it through a network of blood vessels and nerves.

Poor oral health has been linked to a variety of systemic health issues, including diabetes, respiratory infections, and even dementia. For example, gum disease(read: infection and inflammation) has been shown to worsen blood sugar control in people with diabetes, making it harder to manage the condition.

Additionally, oral infections can spread to other parts of the body, leading to serious complications such as respiratory infections and endocarditis (an infection of the heart valves).

On the other hand, maintaining good oral health can have a positive impact on your overall well-being. Studies have shown that people with healthy teeth and gums are less likely to develop certain health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.

To protect your overall health, it’s essential to take care of your oral health. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings, and eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

By prioritizing your oral health, you can not only maintain a beautiful smile but also protect your overall well-being.
