What Are the Dangers of Periodontal Disease?

In this video, Dr. Robert Harvey highlights the link between oral health and overall well-being, emphasizing the importance of preventive care.

It’s important to understand that periodontal disease isn’t just a dental issue—it can have widespread effects on your overall health. For example, women with gum disease during pregnancy are at a higher risk of delivering their babies prematurely due to the bacteria entering the bloodstream. Similarly, these bacteria can affect the heart and lungs, contributing to or exacerbating existing conditions in these organs.

The link between oral health and general health is becoming increasingly clear as research continues to uncover how interconnected they are. Therefore, maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for the health of your mouth and your entire body.

The best way to ensure good oral health is to visit dental professionals regularly. They can provide necessary treatments if you have issues and, equally important, help you maintain your oral health to prevent future problems. This preventative approach is key to avoiding complications that can impact other parts of your body.
