Oral/Systemic Connections” Kelli Swanson-Jaecks
Chronic inflammation is reported as the strongest correlation between periodontal disease and systemic disease. While the inflammatory response is considered of prime importance to the body’s immune system in fighting disease, it can also have deleterious effects. When inflammation is unchecked, multiple systems within the body can be negatively affected. Systemic conditions of heart disease, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis are commonly linked to periodontal disease, however current research is uncovering other connections, such as prostate diseases, and colon cancer. What clinical interventions can be employed to fight and prevent inflammation? Can nutrition as a lifestyle intervention reduce systemic inflammation? This informative and fact filled course will provide tangible take-home lessons for immediate implementation in your practice.
