The Connection Between Heart Trouble and Gum Disease

Posted on 1/17/2018 by Everwell Dentistry
Gum Disease Everwell Dentistry MI 48104Is there a connection between gum disease and heart disease? Although many people do not link the two together, there really is a connection between these two very different diseases.

One disease is in your mouth and gums while the other disease is in your body and your heart. If you sit down and really think about it, it does make sense that these two diseases are linked to one another.

For one thing, if you suffer from gum disease, the bacteria from this illness can go into your bloodstream. From there, it can travel through your blood vessels and clog them up, causing heart attacks, or travel to your heart, causing heart attacks. Either way, both of these diseases are dangerous and should be prevented in every way possible.

How to Prevent Gum Disease

One perfect way to prevent this disease of the gums from happening, and then causing heart disease, is to ensure that you brush twice per day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for routine checkups and cleanings. By doing these three things, you can prevent both diseases since gum disease can cause heart disease.

How to Prevent Heart Disease

The best way to prevent heart disease is to eat healthy, keep your mouth healthy, and exercise the way you are supposed to. You should visit your dentist as often as you can to keep gum disease away, therefore keeping heart disease away as well. Make sure to get enough fruits and vegetables, and walk or jog regularly to keep your heart healthy.

As always, do not forget that you can call us if you need anything or need your questions answered about dental and heart health. Keep doing everything right and you will live a healthy lifestyle always.

Contact us for any questions you have about dental health and your family doctor will tell you everything you need to know about heart disease and how to prevent it.
The first step to a healthy beautiful smile is to schedule an appointment.
