Abstract

Research suggests that there is an interrelationship between oral infection, inflammation and systemic health. Patients, dental healthcare professionals and other health care providers should be aware of the consistent relationships between oral inflammation and systemic diseases. They should value the need to modify assessment, prevention, and treatment protocols to improve the oral health as well as total health of the patients they treat in the office each day.
