Gum disease predisposes you to many illnesses including heart disease!
Diseased gums allow bacteria to pass into the bloodstream, bypassing the body’s defences, and the body must work harder to destroy the bacteria. If the body is not successful, the bacteria may cause serious illness. Usually, the body does kill the bacteria, but not without a cost. The cost is excess inflammation from the immune system working in overdrive to kill the bacteria. This is particularly bad for the heart because inflammation makes blood vessels more fragile and prone to clot and plaque formation. Even small blockages in vessels make the heart function less efficiently and that can contribute to developing impotence and dementia. If blockages get big enough they can cause a heart attack or stroke.
HEALTHY GUMS ARE A GREAT WAY TO FIGHT THIS!
