The relationship between oral and general health has been increasingly recognized during the past two decades. Several studies have lined poor oral health with cardiovascular diseases, poor glycaemic control in diabetics, low birth-weight pre-term babies, and a number of other conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.
