health-heartResearch today is finding a strong correlation with the bacteria in our mouths and systemic illnesses.  The bacteria in our mouth ( plaque) can cause inflammation to the gums and supporting tissues around the teeth.  This is known as gingivitis (gum disease) or periodontal disease.  When harmful bacteria enters the blood stream  it can cause build up in the arteries potentially leading to a blood clot,  increase the chances of developing diabetes, and contribute to many other chronic illnesses.  Chronic inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria can also weaken the bodies defense mechanisms making these chronic illness hard to control and even shorten ones life span.

Patients with healthy gums and teeth are less likely to develope some of these illnesses and can live longer.  Through proper plaque removal from brushing , flossing, and using water irrigators after meals; plaque levels are greatly reduced along with gingival inflammation.

Proper oral hygiene is an easy way to help assure a healthy body and mouth.  Not only will this help prevent illnesses, it can also reduce medical costs. Patients who get their regular dental check ups generally have healthier gums and teeth, fresh breath, improved esthetics,  and fewer risks of developing a chronic illness. Should you  have any questions about the health of your gums and teeth, ask your dentist or hygienist.
