Gum Disease

San Antonio TX Periodontal TherapyYou woke up this morning and checked the scale and mirror. Everything looks and feels great, physically speaking. You chose a smoothie for breakfast filled with protein, fruits and veggies. In the evening you made the choice to go for a run because it’s good for your heart. You are careful to get plenty of sleep and stay fit and healthy so your heart can work at optimal capacity. Could it be that you’re ignoring one unknown part of your heart health when you ignore caring for your teeth?

Did you know that there are links between gum disease and heart disease? Data indicates that chronic gum disease may contribute to the development of heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can affect conditions outside your mouth. One theory is that gum disease can cause bacteria to enter the bloodstream where they attach to the fatty deposits in the heart blood vessels. This condition can cause blood clots and may lead to heart attacks.
