How Oral and Dental Health Affects Your Overall Health and Wellbeing

Your oral and physical health complement each other. Conversely, they can impact each other in harmful ways. According to Mayo Clinic research, this can happen because your mouth is the gateway to your digestive tract. It also leads to your respiratory tracts, which can suffer if bacteria from your mouth leads to disease.

When your teeth and mouth are in pain, you could struggle to maintain good nutrition. In addition, untreated gum disease could lead to cardiovascular issues. You could also suffer from chronic headaches and even challenges to your mental health. This can happen when your teeth are damaged or not properly repaired.

To understand the dental/physical health connection and document your case, your legal team will consult medical and dental experts. They will also help them prepare to testify at depositions or in court.
