Join the Section on Public Health and Preventative Medicine at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia for an informative talk on the connection between Covid 19 and oral health and ways to keep a healthy mouth. Tune in via Zoom to participate in this Pop Up Spotlight Program. Register today to reserve your spot! About the Topic: Gum disease and tooth decay remain common problems throughout the world for both children and adults. More commonly seen in children, tooth decay is the most chronic disease of children worldwide.
Both of these diseases are infections caused by microbes. Harmful microbes include fungi and viruses…like the ones that cause COVID 19. An unhealthy mouth invites harmful microbes that overwhelm our body’s defenses. Inflammation caused by harmful microbes increases our likelihood for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, Alzheimer’s Disease, and death. There’s no “free pass” for health care providers…tooth decay and gum disease hit them too!
