Abstract

There are many oral lesions which run a chronic course and always recur despite being treated multiple times by experts. They cause tremendous damage to multiple tissues. Many oral diseases have orofacial manifestations only, while others are associated with multiple serious systemic manifestations. Various researchers across the globe have been struggling to find out permanent solutions through various therapeutic approaches like, ayurveda and holistic etc but internal root causes should be found out which might give us breakthrough quick therapies in near future.

We need to explore evidence based various hidden internal /systemic causes to achieve permanent cure of such chronic long-standing diseases.

All systems of the body are interconnected and always works in harmony. Oral diseases can never be restricted to orofacial tissues. They are strongly connected to gastro intestinal, ectodermal tissues and all the systems. This article is an attempt to find out same through few hypotheses and connecting oral lesions with other disorders.

Keywords: Oral diseases, hypothesis, leaky gut syndrome, systemic cause, interstitial fluid, acidic
