INTEGRATING PERIODONTAL MEDICINE TO MINIMIZE SYSTEMIC HEALTH RISKS
About this Seminar
Kois Study Club of Saskatchewan Presents: Integrating Periodontal Medicine to Minimize Systemic Health Risks
Cardiovascular Disease kills more people in this country than all cancers combined. Recent science suggests one of the main causes of heart attack and stroke, as well as premature aging and other diseases is systemic inflammation. Knowledge and understanding of the conditions and root causes of systemic inflammation and their cumulative inflammatory burden on our body is critical. Certain conditions within the oral cavity have a significant impact; periodontal disease leads that list. Dentistry is the ideal profession to identify and help manage many issues that contribute to inflammation and overall systemic health. Integration of dentistry with medicine is the way of the future.
