the mouth-body connection

Current research demonstrates that the health of your mouth serves as a window to the health of your whole body. Referred to as both the mouth-body connection and oral-systemic health, this relationship is expressed in two ways:

  • Oral health issues, such as gum disease, can increase your chances of developing serious systemic health problems such as diabetes and certain cardiovascular disorders.
  • The early signs of systemic health problems, especially inflammatory disorders, immune disorders, and hormonal imbalances, show up in the mouth first.

the role of prevention

By taking a proactive approach to your oral health, you can help decrease or even prevent your chances of developing a serious systemic health issue. In addition, if Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri identifies the opening signs of a whole-body health issue during a routine checkup, you can seek early treatment and have a better chance of complete recovery. In short, by taking care of your teeth and gums at home and making sure you see your dentist on a regular basis, you give yourself – and your family – the best opportunity for a lifetime of good health.

To help our patients stay healthy and free from chronic pain and discomfort, Dr Gina Liggio Maestri DDS offers the following preventive dentistry services:
