Oral health – Mirror to General Health

There is an old adage “The mouth is the mirror to the body”.  Your Periodontist in Dubai who is a Gum specialist would like to talk about the connection between your oral health and general health.

Gum disease is an infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth caused by bacteria, the end result of which is a loss of precious tooth support in the form of gum and alveolar bone.

Over a period of time, Gingivitis (gum inflammation) when untreated slowly leads to Periodontitis that can cause the destruction of supporting bone and eventually lead to tooth loss.

There is a lot of research that proves a strong connection between gum infection & systemic disease like heart disease, stroke, Diabetes. You are at 5-6 times higher risk of developing these diseases if you are suffering from gum disease.

If one doesn’t know the science behind the connection, it would be easy to brush aside this important information assuming it is just some eyewash.

So, the rationale or logic behind this connection is this…. Any infection including gum infection can cause the immune system of our body to produce a reaction in terms of cells and chemicals that are directed at fighting this infection.

Periodontal disease

The chemicals that are produced are essentially Proteins, and when proteins are circulating in your body for a long time, they tend to thicken your blood which leads to poor circulation which causes a lot of these systemic health problems…

Hope this explanation can help you understand the connection between your oral health and overall health, so pick up the phone and book your dentist appointment today to find out if you are at risk today!!!!
