Could your teeth be part of your ill health. Many dentists now believe the conditions in a person’s mouth are a reflection of their overall health. Ancient Chinese medicine considered the condition of the mouth to be a reflection of a patient’s total health. Physicians would assess the patient’s mouth, teeth, gums and tongue as part of their overall examination. A condition in one part of the body may be related to a health issue located in another part of the body. This is sometimes called the Focal Infection Theory. Even modern medicine and dentistry have come to realize the link between the effects of oral bacteria and heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other disorders.
This is not to say that the patient becomes ill as a result or their mouth problems, but it may be a contributing factor.
