THE MOUTH-BODY
CONNECTION The key to integrated health care

Growing evidence and research links oral health with overall health, which is often called Oral Systemic Health. We call this approach the Mouth-Body Connection and it is based on the BaleDoneen Method®. When harmful bacteria in your mouth—stemming from cavities, periodontal disease, and abscesses—agitates and inflames your gums, the resulting inflammation can affect multiple systems throughout the body.

If you have periodontal (gum) disease, you are:

1

MOUTH

At greater risk of tooth decay and oral cancer

2

BRAIN

4.5x more likely to suffer from stroke and 2.6x more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease

3

HEART

2-3x more likely to suffer from a heart attack and have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and low-grade inflammation

4

BLOOD VESSELS

24-35% more likely to develop plaque in your coronary arteries and more likely to have inflammation in your major arteries especially in the neck and heart
