Gum Disease Can Be Serious

22nd / December / 2017

Bleeding around the teeth or chronic bad breath can be early warning signs of the onset of gum disease.

This is the time to arrange a check-up with your dentist as the problem can have serious implications if left untreated.
Medical research has shown there are links between gum disease and more serious medical conditions. The bacteria that cause gum disease have been linked to:

  • Diabetes
  • Stroke and heart disease
  • Some cancers

For expectant mothers “gum disease increases your chances for giving birth to a premature baby” or one that’s underweight. Further reading on the topic can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/why-is-gum-disease-dangerous-to-your-health/.
