One of the first things people notice about a person is their smile. That’s one reason it’s important to look after your teeth and gums--you only get one chance to make a first impression. But brushing your teeth also gives you a healthy mouth, and that can make an impression that’s much more important than the first: a healthy body.
Research shows that your oral health can significantly contribute to your overall health, especially the health of your gums. Gum disease has been linked to a variety of conditions that affect the entire body. One recent study showed that bacterial by-products present in diseased gums can damage the heart once they enter the bloodstream. In fact, there is growing research that says people with severe gum disease have a significantly greater risk of stroke or heart attack. We’re also seeing studies that show a link between gum disease and diabetes. People with diabetes are more susceptible to gum disease. In turn, gum disease makes diabetes harder to control. It’s a harmful cycle that’s centred in the mouth.
And what if there is more than one mouth to worry about? Most pregnant women have heightened oral care issues, and certain pregnant women with severe gum disease are more likely to deliver a pre-term low birth weight baby. This risk can be significantly reduced, however, by treatment before the third trimester.
