In his oral health speech, dentist Fred Ferguson explains the link between lifestyle choices and good teeth. In the United States health care system, there are consumers, providers and payers, and all three of these groups look at the system differently. This was responsible for the government shutdown that occurred earlier this month. Ferguson claims poor oral health is the biggest factor in chronic health problems. Poor oral health also affects performance, especially in children. Where humans are made up of genetics and non-genetic elements, the non-genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors for your mouth are the same ones that affect the rest of your body.
When someone has mouth issues, they are infections. Ferguson's oral health speech asserts changing one's lifestyle can drastically improve their oral and overall health. He also advises personalized electronic dental records are available for anyone, anywhere.
