The more serious side of poor oral (dental) hygiene

Did you know that dental caries (tooth decay) is a transmissible disease most commonly spread to children by parents and relatives quite innocently?

Did you know that a visit to your dental may save you from having a heart attack or even a stroke?

Did you know that your risk of heart attack or stroke caused by moderate to severe gum disease is twice that of having high cholesterol?

The bacteria that infect your gums in periodontal (gum) disease cause your body to produce C-Reactive Proteins (CRPs).  CRPs are linked to the development of fatty deposits or plaque that line your major blood vessels.  The plaques are apt to break off and be pushed through your arteries until they lodge in and block smaller arteries in your heart, brain or lungs.  The result is a heart attack or stroke.

Moderate to severe periodontal disease is now known to also cause other serious and at time life threatening conditions such as:

·           Diabetes

·           Kidney disease

·           Premature and low birth weight babies

·           Arthritis

·           Infective Endocarditis

·           Increase of breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women

·           Pneumonia and lung disease

·           And is thought to be associated with Alzheimer’s Disease and Osteoporosis.
