More than just a gum problem

When you have gum disease, the pockets and open wounds in your gums invite the millions of germs that live in your mouth to invade. Ultimately, these germs infiltrate the bloodstream and circulate throughout your body, potentially infecting the rest of your body.

For decades, researchers have investigated the link between periodontal disease and overall health. The results have suggested that those with gum disease are more likely to suffer from heart disease, stroke, respiratory complications, cancers, kidney disease, diabetes, and increased risk of premature or low weight babies.
