How Oral Health and General Health Are Closely Related [Infographic]

We have a guest infographic today on a topic we’ve mentioned several times in previous articles – how closely your oral health is interlinked with your general health. This infographic from Dervla Leavy Dental Care aims to increase awareness on the causes and effects of poor oral health and provides guidelines as to how to decrease the burden of oral diseases. Severe gum disease is found in a large percentage of adults, and an even higher percentage of school children have cavities. While we may not be so concerned about the look of our teeth, we should definitely be concerned about the impact a long term infection or inflammation in your mouth can have on the rest of your body.

    I was a bit surprised to find that almost 100% of adults have tooth decay! I thought it was high, but not that high! I think it depends on where you live and how well you take care of your teeth. This is also worth checking out….

    Indeed an amazing blog. Can’t believe it covered so much
    in detail and the best part was the pictorial description making it all the
    more easy to understand. Never thought that dental care could be that
    important. Going to a dentist had been my worse nightmare. I remember when I
    was left with no choice finally ended up going to the best dental college in
    tricity. That was my best experience and I was finally able to
    overcome my fear due to the friendly and utmost caring doctors. Now I go
    to the best dental college in tricity at regular intervals to ensure that my
    teeth are in healthy state. for more information:

    This blog is really an useful one for the Patients, most of them is not aware of the teeth diseases, so I think this will bring notice on their mind to take care of teeth.
