In the last few years, an awareness of the systemic relationship between oral health and overall health has been growing in the general populace. The systemic connection between oral health and overall health is a regular topic in all kinds of mainstream media, and patients are now looking to dental professionals for guidance.

Dental professionals who educate people about this connection and the role CloSYS may play in meeting health goals are helping ease their patients' concerns about maintaining overall health.


 

Incorporating CloSYS into Systemic Oral Health

Maintaining levels of hormone activity can be greatly influenced by diet, stress and activities. Whether the hormones are metabolic, like cortisol, or supporting estrogen levels, this process of hormonal imbalance can produce halitosis, or bad breath.

Oral malodor can be chronic or acute and can be caused by sulfur compounds releasing in the mouth, food choices, or a systemic health problem. For acute bad breath, CloSYS Complete Oral Care System is unique in controlling the volatile sulfur compounds responsible for creating offensive odors.

Patients monitoring blood glucose levels often have a combination of oral conditions including bleeding, redness and halitosis. The use of the CloSYS Complete Oral Health System may aid in maintaining healthy oral flora and supporting a healthy periodontal condition. Regular brushing, flossing and oral rinsing in the morning and evening are recommended. To maintain healthy gums using an oral irrigating appliance once daily provides an added measure of preventive systemic care at home.

Patient Home Use Recommendation:

  • Brush With A Pea Sized Amount Of CloSYS Toothpaste
  • Floss Daily
  • Use A 10:1 Solution Of Water And CloSYS Rinse In An Oral Irrigator (WaterPik)
  • Rinse Whole Mouth With CloSYS Rinse For 30 Seconds
Diabetes

Evidence suggests the same pathogens responsible for invading the cardiovascular tissues are also found in the mouth and periodontal pockets. Routine and regular use of CloSYS eliminates the food supply of the anaerobic bacteria, and reduces redness and bleeding. CloSYS is effective against these cardiovascular invading pathogens; Streptococcus mutans, Actinobacillus actinoymycetemocomitans, Porphyromaonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia.

Patient Home Use Recommendation:

  • Brush With A Pea Sized Amount Of CloSYS Toothpaste
  • Floss Daily
  • Use A 10:1 Solution Of Water And CloSYS Rinse In An Oral Irrigator (WaterPik)
  • Rinse Whole Mouth With CloSYS Rinse For 30 Seconds
Periodontitis and Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke

Pregnant women who have periodontal disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby that is preterm of low birth weight. CloSYS is safe to use with pregnant patients, or for those women who may be considering becoming pregnant. In vitro, CloSYS does not interfere with fibroblastic activity, and has no adverse effects on periodontal tissues.

Patient Home Use Recommendation:

  • Brush With A Pea Sized Amount Of CloSYS Toothpaste
  • Floss Daily
  • Use A 10:1 Solution Of Water And CloSYS Rinse In An Oral Irrigator (WaterPik)
  • Rinse Whole Mouth With CloSYS Rinse For 30 Seconds

Reduced saliva flow promotes bacteria, which in turn can cause bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Most dry mouth patients are unaware of the serious risks they face. Medications, supplements, herbs, heightened physical activity and systemic imbalance are some of the factors playing a role in dry mouth or xerostomia. Patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy can develop oral mucositis or stomatitis. These conditions create inflammation and ulceration of the mucous membranes causing pain, oral systemic infection and nutritional compromise.

Patient Home Use Recommendation:

  • Using Alcohol-Free CloSYS Oral Rinse As Both A Wetting And Cleansing Agent
  • Using Flavor-Free CloSYS Oral Rinse To Help Reduce Tissue Pain
  • Swishing With CloSYS Oral Rinse, Or Using It As A Brush-On Agent Will Bring Relief And Comfort To Sore, Dry Mucous Membranes
Xerostomia, Mucositis or Stomatitis

Many patients suffer from recurrent irritation and ulceration of the mucosal membranes, known as Recurrent Aphthous Ulcers. Sodium lauryl sulfate, a common detergent found in toothpaste, shampoo and detergents, has been implicated in the cause and duration of aphthous ulcers. It appears that sulfates increases blood flow in the gums, increasing mucosal and gingival sloughing, which may cause the increase in minor aphthous ulcers.

Patient Home Use Recommendation:

  • Brush With A Pea Sized Amount Of CloSYS Toothpaste
  • Floss Daily
  • Use A 10:1 Solution Of Water And CloSYS Rinse In An Oral Irrigator (WaterPik)
  • Rinse Whole Mouth With CloSYS Rinse For 30 Seconds
