Infographic: How Your Oral Health Affects Your Overall Health

We’ve spent a great deal of time explaining how your oral health has a dramatic affect on your overall health. However, sometimes it helps to see things in pictures. We’d love to share a beautiful infographic with you to highlight the connection between your oral and overall health.

Some of the key findings from the graphic:

1. 30-50% of American adults have some form of gum disease. 

2. Gum disease is linked to diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, heart disease, and pregnancy issues.

3. 95% of Americans who have diabetes also have periodontal disease.

4. Pregnant mothers with periodontal disease are 4x more likely to give birth to babies with low birth weight.
