Oral Health + Overall Health

The Relationship between Swallowing Function and Oral Health

Swallowing, oral health, and saliva production are crucial factors for maintaining overall health and an optimal quality of life. While evidence suggests that these factors are inter-related in both health and disease, there is a paucity of evidence that has explored these factors and their potential relationships. Generating new knowledge of these factors and the relationships between them has the potential to positively impact health care provision for a variety of patient populations.
