What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal Disease, also known as Pyorrhea is an infection of the
gums and bone that hold your teeth in place. It begins with bacterial
growth in your mouth and if left untreated, it causes loss of the bone
supporting your teeth and subsequent loss of the teeth.
Periodontal disease and Heart link
It is a known fact that any chronic infection in your
mouth (which is what Periodontal Disease is) allows the bacteria to
enter your blood stream. These bacteria may cause blood clots and block
your arteries, possibly even triggering a heart attack.
Other studies have shown that plaque bacteria entering the bloodstream
through infected gums may also cause a potentially fatal heart disease
called infective endocarditis. This is a bacterial infection which
causes the sac around the heart to become inflamed.
