Dedication to Oral Systemic Link Prompts President’s Award
If you were to receive accreditation with “The President’s Award” from the AAOSH, what would it mean to you? Why does this and the Oral Systemic Link carry such significance for Dr. Dean Lodding? It’s in your best interest to read on!
The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) is an organization that provides support to health professionals and the public by improving awareness about the link between the mouth and the body. They are passionate in their vision to educate medical and dental professionals. Using emerging science, they can unite knowledge with practices so millions worldwide will benefit and live healthier, longer, happier lives–is this not a worthy endeavor? Of course it is. What role does Dr. Lodding play?
Emerging science confirms that having a chronic low-grade infection in the mouth will elevate systemic inflammation and have an impact on all body systems. In other words, what happens in your mouth does not stay in your mouth.
The mouth is further linked with the rest of the body as seen when considering the impact of oral airway and sleep apnea, TMJ and headaches, dental caries (cavity) infections, and oral cancer. The significance of these numerous mouth-body and oral-systemic connections highlight the importance of preventing and treating oral disease since it has mounting and profound medical effects on your whole body’s health.
Dr. Lodding works very closely with AAOSH and those practitioners committed to improving oral and general health and healing. The President’s Award was therefore appropriately bestowed upon him in recognition of this.
