… Dentistry can reduce chronic disease in our practices … today!

It is a FACT that oral pathogens are causal to atherosclerotic disease. It is time to begin the training that will save your patient’s lives.

Year 2016- Specific oral pathogens are found causal to atherosclerotic disease… atherosclerotic disease is causal to a significant American death rate.

Researchers are concluding that about 50% of cardiovascular events have an oral pathogen as causal or associated with that event. One third of heart attacks result in death.

Translocated oral pathogen microbiomes are now found in carotid, coronary, and femoral arteries… with high counts relative to competing organisms.

Testing high-risk patients is essential… perhaps a mandatory standard of care. Local adjunctive therapies for high-risk patients have no impact on the translocated biomes… now what?

Periodontitis is a medical condition with a dental solution… from trained dental teams.

To all of dentistry- may we see the way to provide complete ‘patient caring’ by routinely implementing oral systemic practices. To our oral systemic colleagues- your patents are living healthier. To our patient friends- may you encourage your dental team to move in this direction.

Be the solution… for your patients.

2017 – 92.1 million Americans have some form of heart disease – American Heart Association.

02_21_18_blogtw2004- J Periodontology – 91% of people with heart disease have some form of gums that bleed.

2018- 83.5 million Americans have both heart disease and gums that bleed.

2017- the ‘Anerobe’ co-occurrence study – the same profile of high-risk, gram negative, pathogens found in the mouth are found on coronary and carotid arteries of patents who have some form of both heart disease and gums that bleed. That is 83.5M Americans.

The past decade- a vascular researcher, Pessi, has found 50% or more of heart attacks and strokes are initiated by, linked to, associated with, and some simply caused by… oral pathogens living on arterial linings. That will be 50% of 83.5M Americans.

‘Houston… we have a problem! ‘

The ‘bad bugs’ in the human mouth or those which have moved to the coronary and carotid arteries do not need to be a risk factor for 83.5M Americans. Trained dental teams have the solution … some medical teams are referring patients to these teams. This is ‘new’… but vitally important to patient wellness and reducing chronic disease.

‘Houston… we have a solution!’
