TRIOLOGY™ for Patients
When your oral health is at risk, your entire body is at risk. Recent scientific research suggests a very strong correlation between chronic oral infections from periodontal (gum) disease and systemic health. Research at major universities and medical centers strongly supports a connection between oral health and systemic health known as the oral-systemic connection.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of Americans aged 30 or older have periodontal disease — a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. As periodontal disease progresses, bacterial enzymes break down the gum tissue, allowing bacteria to enter the circulatory system. These circulating bacteria trigger a systemic inflammatory response, which places an added burden on the immune system and may be a contributing factor in numerous medical conditions.
Research has shown a strong connection between oral bacteria associated with periodontal disease and medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer. Bacteria in the mouth can also lead to complications during pregnancy.
TRIOLOGY™ advanced oral care products — backed by independent studies, research, clinical testing, and dental experiences — are specially formulated to address the oral-systemic connection by eliminating harmful bacteria in the mouth. Not only does this promote advanced oral cleansing, but it can help address one underlying cause of many systemic health conditions.
