Recent literature suggests that microbes and/or inflammation contributes to many chronic diseases. Thus, oral inflammatory diseases such as periodontitis have been associated with a variety of chronic disease and conditions. This course will provide a summary of present knowledge about the connections between oral diseases, such as periodontitis, and a variety of systemic diseases and conditions such as atherosclerosis, respiratory infections, diabetes, and cognitive impairment. The potential etiology of these connections will be discussed, as well as methods for prevention. Several case studies will be presented to illustrate these connections.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the history and literature that connects poor oral health with chronic disease.
- Understand biological mechanisms that may explain how poor oral health impacts on chronic disease risk.
- Describe oral interventions that may reduce the risk for chronic disease.
