A healthy mouth, including healthy teeth and gums, is the foundation for a beautiful, youthful smile. You may be surprised to learn that a little more than half of all people have some type of active disease in their mouths, including gingivitis (gum disease) and periodontal issues (affecting the bone). Chronic disease such s this is an infection caused by bacteria that has the potential to affect many other areas in your body. Studies confirm that gum disease (gingivitis) may even put you at a higher risk for heart disease and stroke, problems with breathing, and can even cause low birth weight babies and premature delivery for women who aren pregnant. You may find it interesting that the condition of your teeth and oral tissues can also give an accurate impression of your overall health, often showing symptoms of disease in other areas of your body. Health problems such as diabetes, leukemia, certain types of cancer, heart and kidney disease all have signs in their early stages that can be observed during a routine dental examination. In fact, your dentist may actually be the first person to diagnose an issue that at first glance has nothing to do with your gums and teeth.
