Each day, there is more data being uncovered that indicates a link between the health in your mouth and the health of your body. After all, everything is connected! We all have friendly bacteria and fungi growing in our mouths, and each time we swallow these microorganisms are introduced into the rest of your body. If the unfriendly, or pathogenic, bacteria are present in the mouth, or if there are inflammatory markers present, these will also be introduced to the rest of the body. Links have been drawn between oral disease and cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and preterm birth.
