Oral Health: The Synergic Relationship between Oral Health and Overall Wellness


Did you know your overall health is highly dependent on your oral health? There is a synergic relationship between the two.

Did you know gum disease is the most common chronic inflammatory condition in the world, plus gum disease is also linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis?

By combing through 1,000-plus medical histories, researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry found that people with gum disease were twice as likely as others to die from a heart attack and three times as likely to have a stroke. How crazy is that?

In our latest podcast episode, we nerd out on all things oral health with the Co-Founder and Chief Dental Officer, Dr. Lynn Hurst.

Janna and Evan have been using Candid’s clear aligners for straightening their teeth for the past few months and have seen not only amazing cosmetic results but also health results! Dr. Hurst, Janna, and Evan chat through the different effects oral health has on your overall health, the evolution of your teeth, the main culprits of poor oral health, and what masks are doing to your facial structure.

What we discuss:

10:00 – Why we seem to have so many oral issues
22:00  – The connection between oral health and cardiovascular health
28:00 – The effects of mask-wearing on facial structure
34:00 – The biggest catalysts for poor oral health
42:00 – Optimal diet for optimal oral health
50:00 – All about Candid
