Dangers of Gum Disease

There are millions of germs that live in your mouth. If you suffer from gum disease, you have open wounds in your gums that allow these bacteria to enter directly into your blood stream and circulate throughout your body.

Research has shown there is a correlation between periodontal disease and heart disease, ischemic stroke, respiratory disease, head and neck cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, and increased risk of preterm delivery.


Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for the majority of adults in the United States. Losing your teeth however is not the only danger of this disease.


When an individual has gum disease it means that there is an active, living infection in your mouth. This infection releases toxins to the entire body through the blood vessels in your mouth causing a variety of health related issues.
