Oral Manifestation of Systemic Disease

This lecture was delivered to multiple dental study groups, hospital rounds, and the AGD of Hawaii
Debbie Ellard's insight:

What better service can you provide your patients than to really care about how their oral health impacts their total health? I stumbled on this slide presentation via Scibd.com after being diagnosed with sarcoidosis this past July. I found the pictures and consice listings of symptoms to be very interesting and informative. But, I am not a clinical professional and have not had any training clinically other than what happens through osmosis of being in the dental profession for over 33 years. 

 

That said, when I showed this to our clinical team they were amazed at the visual representation of what they had been taught. While you may be well informed regarding this information, I share it because the refresher may be of value to your patients. I also found that our hygienists and assistants were energized by the fresh material and became more proactive in their discussions with patients regarding their health since we last saw them.

 

If you find this information helpful, please share it with others. Should you have updates or other related images and articles, we would love to have you share with us at debbie@ellardm2.com or scott@scottellarddentistry.com

Debbie Ellard's insight:

Important information for your health. Know the signs of both diabetes and gum disease. The lack of attention to one can make the other disease more active.

 

Ask your dental provider about coverage from your medical insurance for periodontal services. They should be able to process these with your medical carrier, saving your limited dental benefits for other restorative types of treatment. Medical cross coding in dental practices is becoming more routine as the oral links to overall health are recognized. The most common are diabetes, heart disease, cancer patients and patients with seizure disorders. If you have a chronic medical condition, ask your dentist or his administrative team about using your medical benefits for some of these services.
