    The Oral-Systemic Connection in Daily Dental Practice                                                                                                     Your Patients Are Asking About It; What Are You Telling Them?

    Chronic inflammation is a key component of the initiation and progression of numerous systemic conditions.  Expanding knowledge of the pathologenesis of oral inflammatory diseases, especially periodontal diseases, has shed light on the intimate relationships between periodontal health and overall systemic health.  It is important for the dental team to understand these relationships.  Most imperative is the translation of information from the world of basic science and clinical research and into the daily practice of dentistry.


    • Be familiar with the emerging concepts of periodontal diseases as they relate to other inflammatory diseases
    • Comprehend the influences of systemic conditions such as immune compromise and diabetes on periodontal health
    • Know how inflammatory periodontal diseases may impact cardiovascular health, the clinical course of diabetes, and pregnancy outcomes
