Are Dentists the Good Guys or the Bad Guys?

BY Total Health Screens – 5 years ago

Have you ever seen the movies Finding Nemo, Horrible Bosses, The Hangover trilogy, Little Shop of Horrors or even The Dentist I and II?

All these movies portray dentists as crazy, negative or low on the totem pole in the medical community. The dentists are cast in a negative light and are just not shown as the hero.

It’s time for dentists and dental professionals to show how we are saving the world!!

More people see the dentist than their appointed GP. This gives dentistry the opportunity to impact lives even more than we already do. Dentistry can empower patients with preventative screenings using The Oral Systemic Connection Model®.

The United Kingdom (UK) is facing a concerning rise in obesity, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s (dementia) and bowel cancer. All these diseases have a connection to oral health.

The Facts We Can’t Ignore!

Why dentistry? Dental practices have a continuous flow of patients that allows us a channel to create higher levels of total health awareness.

Millions of people go undiagnosed or do not receive simple preventative screenings that can impact or save one’s life. This is costly to our society not only emotionally but financially. This can easily be addressed with basic screenings and better communication.

The Oral System Connection Model®

Oral systemic health is the connection between oral health and overall health. Countless studies have demonstrated a link between poor oral health and systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even pregnancy complications.

Why is oral-systemic health so important? The mouth is the gateway to the body and many studies have shown that oral pathogens have been detected within areas of the body that are infected or carry disease.

Dental professionals understand the oral health guidelines during pregnancy. Pregnant women go through hormonal changes that can affect their oral health by causing higher cases of gum disease.

There are even studies that show periodontal disease during pregnancy can lead to birth complications. Periodontal disease or inflammation of the gum is passed within the blood stream causing increased risks.

Gum disease or inflammation of the mouth has been linked to increasing risk of heart attacks and strokes and can cause complications in people with diabetes, kidney disease, arthritis, and even high blood pressure.

Using the right communications, tools and desire we can bring more awareness with disease prevention and with disease management.

Dentistry has a great opportunity to impact millions of lives more than they ever have. With the growing population and the growing health concerns of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease we can really impact lives and change the course of healthcare forever.
