Why isn’t it common knowledge that many diseases start in the mouth?

For many decades dentistry has been considered a separate discipline outside of general wellness and health. This is rapidly changing. With new tools like the high definition microscope and a greater understanding of inflammatory, chronic and auto immune conditions, it is becoming clearer that dentistry and the inflammation that can be present in the mouth can have a direct and significant role in systemic inflammation.  Please look around this page. There are videos here showing live demos of inflammatory bacteria and their effects.
