Gum Disease Systemic Links

Periodontal disease can increase a pregnant woman’s chance of pre-term birth, it can cause complications with diabetics, and those with gum disease have an increased chance of heart disease and stroke. It’s also linked to several types of Cancer, chronic respiratory infections, and ulcers. Gum disease destroys the teeth and the gums and can reduce your life expectancy as well as your quality of life.
