Health is wealth, they say. But even more profound is the importance of oral health, as like is commonly said, “Oral health is the window to our overall health.” With several studies and research to back up these claims, Dr. Mark Stein, an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, uses his practice to advocate a more inclusive and encompassing oral health to help improve the body’s overall wellness.

The importance of good oral health cannot be overstated, and as Dr. Stein puts it, “maintaining good oral hygiene is a surefire way of preventing life-threatening diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and even cancer.” In a recent analysis led by National Institute on Aging (NIA), scientists suggest that the bacteria associated with periodontal disease that causes chronic inflammation are also associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, especially vascular dementia. Similarly, cancers of the throat and lungs are caused mainly by heavy smoking and drinking, and research has shown that bad oral health/hygiene can lead to cancers of the throat and mouth.
