About the event

Inflammation, Chronic Disease,  and Oral Health

Course description

80% of adults have at least one chronic condition  and 68% have 2 or more. What is the underlying cause of this malady?  Chronic inflammation. It has been shown to contribute Alzheimer’s  Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, colon and pancreatic cancer and  more. Oral inflammation is often overlooked as a potential risk factor.  This course will explore the link between inflammation, chronic disease,  and oral health.

• Examine how p.gingivalis may contribute to a dysbiotic gut microbiota 

• Discover how the gut microbiome plays a role in immune function 

• Evaluate the research showing how periodontal disease may worse cognitive decline and inflammatory bowel diseases, and play a role in colon and pancreatic cancer 

• Discuss the role periodontal therapy and good oral hygiene may have on  brain and GI health
