Welcome to the Whole Body Health Diagram

The FDI Whole Body Health platform is designed to share with you the latest research linking oral health with overall health and support your exploration of these relationships. Each health condition has been graded according to the strength of the supporting research (robust, emerging, early). The impact of poor oral health on the specific condition has been graded as “causal”, “worsening” or “association”. We hope you find the platform enlightening, and as new research emerges this page will be updated. Click an organ/system for more information.
