In addition to pain and discom-fort,
untreated oral disease can
have consequences for adults as
well as children.
Oral and systemic health are
traditionally treated through sepa-rate
health care systems. Evidence
is mounting that demonstrates a
clear link between the two. One
obvious connection is between the
health of our mouth and our diet.
When our mouth and teeth are
healthy, we are better able to eat
nutritious foods. Mouth pain can
often make it diffi cult to chew
fi rmer foods like fresh fruits and
vegetables.
Research is also fi nding links
between oral disease and other
medical conditions such as diabe-tes,
heart disease, stroke, and
bacterial pneumonia. Periodontal
disease in pregnant women has
been linked to increased risk for
pre-term births. Infections in the
mouth can also enter the blood-stream
and spread to other parts
of the body.
Severe oral disease can nega-tively
impact a person’s appear-ance,
which lowers self esteem
and may make social interactions
more diffi cult. Adults may fi nd it
more diffi cult to secure employ-ment.
Children with poor dental
health have been shown to per-form
more poorly in school than
their healthier peers.
It is widely accepted that pre-vention
saves money. As an exam-ple
it has been shown that the age
at which children have their fi rst
dental visit is inversely propor-tional
to their total dental costs.
That means that the earlier a child
visits the dentist, the lower his or
her total dental costs will be.
