 PERIODONTAL & PREVENTIVE MEDICINE
Periodontal (Gum) disease is an infectious disease and a significant cause of tooth loss in humans all over the world. It affects the gums and the supporting tissues of your teeth, such as, the jawbone and periodontal ligament. There is a growing body of scientific evidence suggesting that the infection of your gums and jawbone (periodontal disease) can negatively impact other parts of your body, such as, your heart, lungs, kidneys, joints, brain,... Recent research suggests a link between gum disease & cardiovascular disease, stroke, acute coronary syndrome, cerebrovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, diabetes, arthritis, respiratory diseases (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), osteoporosis, adverse pregnancy outcomes (preterm birth & low birth weight), cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, erectile dysfunction... Treating and, more importantly, preventing gum disease will reduce the risks of infections and associated systemic conditions. Healthy gums can lead to a healthier life. "Love the gums you are with"
