What Parts of the Body Are Affected When You Do Not Treat Gum Disease?
Posted on 11/25/2018 by Front Desk
The effects of gum disease are most evident in the mouth. Pink and swollen tissue, bleeding gums, and loose or missing teeth are all symptoms of gum disease. However, many people do not realize that the problems caused by gum disease do not stop in the mouth. On the contrary, gum disease can affect parts of the body far from the mouth Your Bones and Gum DiseaseResearchers have identified a correlation between gum disease and osteoporosis. While there is not enough evidence to make a definitive statement, it appears that the inflammation associated with gum disease can affect bones elsewhere in the body. Gum Disease and DiabetesDoctors have long known that the inflammation in the mouth from gum disease can hinder the body's ability to control the levels of blood sugar. This can lead to issues with diabetes. Diabetes, in turn, can affect many areas of the body. From poor circulation, which can lead to problems in the extremities, to organ failure, diabetes can have drastic (and sometimes even fatal) consequences. Given the link between diabetes and gum disease, and the horrific effects diabetes can have on the body, you should come see us right away if you suspect your gum tissue may be inflamed or diseased. Gum Disease and Your HeartIf you have gum disease, you are also at a higher risk for developing inflamed blood vessels.

As you know, these types of occurrences can be fatal, meaning that gum disease can actually end up contributing to a condition that can end your life. If you have gum disease, please call us. Even if you think you may not have it, but you have noticed any of the symptoms such as swelling, redness, or bleeding, we should see you right away. Your health is too important to leave it up to chance....
