[BREAKING] Gum Disease Hidden Danger
Gum disease is bad news.
This infection of your gums can lead to bone destruction and tooth loss.
But a future with dentures is the least of your concerns.
Studies have connected gum disease to Alzheimer’s, cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, and more.
And now a recent study has added another hidden, but major danger to the list. It’s something that kills more than half a million people every year.
That’s the bad news.
The good news?
Resolving your gum disease can lower your risk.
Gum disease is shockingly common.
And it’s become clear in recent years that gum disease affects far more than your gums. In fact, studies have tied it to some of the most serious and deadly diseases of our day.
How could something as seemingly simple as gum disease be so destructive?
A recent study provided an important piece to the puzzle:
Gum disease is an infection in the soft tissues surrounding your teeth. The bacteria triggers inflammation, which causes the gum to become swollen, and ultimately to recede form your teeth.
For a study published in Journal of Periodontology, researchers analyzed PET scans and CT scans for signs of inflammation in the gums and arteries.
They found that people with inflammation in their gums were more likely to also have inflammation in their arteries—something that can cause cardiovascular disease.
Not surprisingly, then, they also found that people with active gum inflammation at the start of the study were more likely to experience a cardiovascular event.
This connection remained the same regardless of other factors like age, smoking, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
What likely happens is that local inflammation in your gums activates immune cells in your bone marrow, which then trigger inflammation in your arteries.
But this recent study uncovered some good news as well.
It turns out that people who previously had gum disease severe enough to cause bone loss—but that did not have active, ongoing inflammation—did NOT have an increased risk of heart disease.
That means that it’s never too late to reap the benefits of improving your gum health.
P.S. Your oral hygiene is important. That includes brushing your teeth, using mouthwash, and flossing. And if your one that tends to skimp on the flossing… I urge you to click here now and learn why not flossing could be putting your HEALTH at risk!
