Did you know that periodontal (gum) disease is actually a bone infection in your mouth?

When your gums become infected and inflamed from periodontal disease, bacteria from the plaque in your mouth can spread and grow below the gum line. The bacteria can then enter into the blood stream and travel to major organs and begin new infections. Recent studies show that periodontal or gum disease is linked to other diseases in the brain, heart and rest of the body, including:

  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Heart Disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Premature Birth
  • And More
