Gum Disease

Studies have shown links between periodontal (gum) disease, heart disease and other health conditions.


Research further suggests that gum disease may be a more serious risk for heart disease, more so than hypertension, smoking cholesterol, gender and ages.


Researchers conclusions suggest that bacteria present in infected gums can become loose and move throughout the body through the bloodstream. Once bacteria reaches the arteries, they can irritate them in the same way that they irritate gum tissue causing arterial plaque, which can cause hardening and affect blood-flow.
