Many people may not realize how important the health of their teeth and gums is when looking at diseases in the rest of the body.
Research has shown that periodontal problems, or gum and bone disease,is associated with several other diseases. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body. More recent research shows that inflammation may be responsible for the association. In other words, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.
