Connection between Oral Health and Overall Health

Research points to possible links between oral diseases like Gingivitis and Periodontitis (gum disease), and more serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, low birth weight, and many more.

The reason for this is clear: gum disease is one of the body's most common conditions. Periodontal infection may cause bacteria to enter into the blood stream and travel to other parts of the body.

A healthy body starts with a healthy mouth. CloSYS helps kill harmful bacteria in the mouth that may spread to other parts of the body. So when you take care of your mouth with great oral care, you're helping to take care of your entire body.
