Your Gums And Your Health: What's The Relationship?

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Todd Jorgenson
Your Gums And Your Health: What's The Relationship?You may not be thinking about your gums at this moment. However, you need to know that whether you are thinking about them or not, your gums are tied to your overall health.

In fact, if you have gum disease, not only are you risking your dental health by not getting your gum disease treated, but you may be endangering your overall health. Here is some information about the relationship between your gums and your health.

About Gum Disease


Gum disease affects more than half of American adults. In the early stages of gum disease, you can cure the disease through regular brushing and flossing, and dental visits. However, in the later stages, gum disease, called periodontitis, cannot be cured. Instead, you and your dentist will discuss deep cleaning procedures to get rid of diseased gum tissue and bacteria.

If you don't treat your gum disease, you can lose teeth and gum tissue. You also are damaging your health.

What Do My Gums Have To Do With My Overall Health


Gum disease can impact your overall health, especially if you have a chronic illness, such as diabetes or heart disease. Diabetics already have to protect their bodies from excess sugar due to insufficient insulin.

Because gum disease means you have a lot of bad bacteria in your mouth, people with diabetes can make their condition worse. That bad bacteria can travel throughout their bodies and aggravate their diabetes.

Bad bacteria due to gum disease can also travel to your heart and cause damage or disease there. The most important thing you can do for your health is to have your gum disease treated to eliminate as many bad bacteria as possible.

If you are worried about your gums, the time to take action is now. You can also call us to book an appointment.
