Gum Disease Dangers And Health Risks

Having gum disease doesnt just affect the way your teeth look or feel, it can also make you more likely to suffer from severe health conditions in other parts of your body. Research shows a direct correlation in the severity of your gum disease and the severity of other health conditions. 

Health concerns that are associated with gum disease include:

    • Heart attack

    • Stroke

    • Cardiovascular diseases

    • Diabetes

    • Erectile dysfunction

    • Obesity

    • Premature labor

  • Low birth weight

If you suffer from any of these conditions along with gum disease, it places a strain on the bodys immune system and makes it difficult to battle a combination of conditions. Bacterial plaque from the mouth can enter into the blood vessels when gum disease is present, spreading to other areas of the body. These bacteria within your bloodstream can increase the likelihood of occurrences such as a heart attack.
