Did you know that heart disease and oral health are linked? Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gums. Oral health holds clues to overall health. Are you at risk? Many of the risk factors for gum disease are the same as those for heart disease, such as tobacco use, poor nutrition and diabetes. Gum disease is caused by plaque buildup along and below the gum line. Researchers have suggested that gum disease may contribute to heart disease because bacteria from infected gums can enter the bloodstream, attach to blood vessels and increase clot formation. Clots decrease blood flow to the heart, thereby causing an elevation in blood pressure and increasing the risk of a heart attack. Gum disease effects 80% of American adults and often the condition goes undiagnosed. Regular dental exams and cleanings are necessary to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar and detect early signs of gum disease. The best way to be proactive in maintaining your oral and overall health is scheduling regular dental checkups, getting professional cleanings and daily brushing, flossing and/or using a Waterpik.
