Gum (Periodontal) Disease: The Damage it Does 


The Effect of Gum Disease on Your Health

If you are like most people who suffer from gum disease you may not be aware of just how destructive this disease can be to your health. You can no longer afford to look at dental disease as a minor ailment of the gums and teeth. It is actually a disease of the body, one that just happens to begin in the mouth; but if it’s left unchecked; it can contribute to other more serious diseases that can damage your health, shorten your life, and destroy the quality of your life. 

All oral health problems can negatively affect your health but mercury amalgam fillings and gum disease are the most destructive and affect the most people. The subject of mercury poisoning from amalgam fillings and mercury detoxification is extensively covered in The Poison in Your Teeth: Mercury Amalgam Silver Fillings . . . Hazardous to Your Health and Your Complete Guide to Mercury Detoxification: How to Safely Remove Mercury from Your Teeth and Body. You can Browse the Table of Contents of each book to find out more about the subject of mercury amalgam fillings and their disastrous affect on your health. 

But, as you will see, gum disease can also have a devastating affect on your overall health, especially the health of your heart and circulatory system. For example, moderate to severe gum disease can also:

Increase the risk of heart attack by as much as 25%.

Increase the risk of stroke by a factor of 10. 

Gum Disease and Health Problems

But, the harmful affects of gum disease do not stop with heart disease. Recent scientific studies have clearly demonstrated the harmful role it plays in other serious and life-threatening diseases. Did you know that moderate to severe gum disease can also: 


Severely stress the immune system?

Lower resistance to other infections?

Increase the severity of diabetes?

Contribute to respiratory disease?

Contribute to low preterm birth weights?

Interfere with proper digestion?

Actually reduce life expectancy?
