Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common human diseases. The signs of gum disease may include bleeding or swollen gums and is an infectious condition that can result in the destruction of gum tissue and bone. If left untreated, the bacteria that causes gum disease may travel through the blood stream increasing the chance of heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases and pregnancy complications.
The link between oral infections and other diseases in the body is becoming well documented and accepted within the health care community. It underscores the importance of good oral hygiene and the very important role dentists play in preventing oral disease and giving you a lifetime of healthy smiles.
