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.
