The fact that teeth are connected to other muscles, tissues and other organs of the body means that a person can suffer from gland and heart problem because they have problem in their teeth. Also, studies have shown that dental infections can lead to diabetes. So, you want to be healthy you must check the health of gums and teeth.
Health experts are of the view that teeth have neurological control over other parts of the body. Teeth are connected to other parts of the body via the nerves.

Also, the lymphatic vessels of your teeth use the same lymphatic nodes that are used by thyroid gland. This means that all materials and infections which leak out from the teeth have to pass through thyroid gland.

Even medicines and vaccines given to kids can get trapped in thyroid gland.

For example, a problem in the adrenal glands can lead to problems in the teeth. Some people can also suffer from problem in the mouth because of head injury. In a recent incident, a woman suffered from temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) pain because she had suffered from a head injury when she was in high school.
