Why Oral Screening
Why prevention is required in oral health

Why Oral Screening

During tooth infection, pus is accumulated in the cavity region. This is not visible from outside except when swelling/inflammation occurs. Once the swollen area ruptures, bacteria from the tooth infection can spread and damage the surrounding bones, tissues, teeth and effects other
parts of the body through bloodstream

    major Dental/ Oral health
  • How some persons will be
    benefited
  • ¬†Footfalls increase for doctors
  • Lifestyle & quality life will improve
  • Reduce procedure cost / treatment
    cost and implants cost, because of
    volumes

Connection between Oral and Overall health

  • Mouth is the entry point to the digestive and respiratory tracts: Some of these bacteria can cause disease.
  • Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections such as tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Studies suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with a severe form of gum diseases will play a major role in various diseases.
  • Certain diseases such as diabetes and HIV/AIDS can lower the body’s resistance to infection making oral health problems more severe
