Newspapers, magazines, and new medical and dental research papers are reporting that periodontal (gum) disease increases the risk for a variety of disease and health conditions, including heart attack, stroke, diabetic complications, lung infections, and pre-term, low birth weight babies.
Clinical research established that gum disease is an infection of specific (bad) bacteria. The body’s immune system responds to these bacteria, their poisons, and antigens thereby stimulating a chronic inflammatory response that is free to enter the blood stream and circulate throughout the body.
These inflammatory mediators travel to the liver, which is stimulated to produce C-reactive proteins (CRP). These CRP promote platelet adhesions in the blood vessels and a cascade of other harmful effects on the body.
These periodontal infections are linked to a host of other medical risks:
