The Connections Between Gum Disease
and Overall Health

Having good oral health is not only important for clean and white teeth, but also to help prevent gum disease, a condition that’s linked to a host of serious health issues. Research shows that people with gum disease are at greater risk for heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, cancer and osteoporosis. In fact, there are more than 100 health problems linked to poor oral health.

How does gum disease impact the rest of the body? What makes preventing gum disease so important, not only for your oral health but also for overall wellness? Let’s take a look:

The body is interconnected

The systems of the human body are interconnected, not isolated. Any unchecked infection can spread to other areas of the body. Just as you’d want to treat any other inflammation or infection, you also should take gum disease seriously.

Gum disease means inflammation

Anyone who has gum disease is dealing with inflammation, and inflammation can spread. The same agents at work in your oral cavity can increase inflammation elsewhere.

Bacteria spreads

Gum disease indicates the presence of unhealthy bacteria in the mouth — bacteria that can lead to conditions such as cardiovascular disease. It can worsen symptoms in diabetics, too.

The bottom line is that gum disease is a condition that should be taken seriously — not just to protect your teeth, but also to protect your body. To learn more about the link between oral health and physical health, check out the attached resource. It offers a closer look at gum disease and its side effects, from premature birth to dementia. You’ll also find five practical ways you can minimize your risk for gum disease and in so doing, care for your overall health.
