Habitual inflammation in the gums from periodontal disease has been associated with the development of cardiovascular problems.

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Smile big, Smile proud! Taking care of ones mouth for it may be the first step in achieving great overall medicinal health. There have been many connections made by experts between the mouth; its soft tissue (gums and tongue), and the diseases which are predictors and potential identifiers of medical conditions. As many have already failed new year resolutions, lets’ not fail our bodies too. I propose a challenge for all: obtaining at least two professional dental cleaning appointments per year paired with the proper home care of the mouth; brushing gently for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

There have been correlations between the condition of oral hygiene and medicinal conditions such as: an increase in heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The destruction of connective tissues in both periodontal (gum disease) and RA is similar. Another concern is that the habitual inflammation in the gums from periodontal disease has been associated with the development of cardiovascular problems. Heart disease, blockages of blood vessels, strokes, and other serious health problems have been seen in correlation with periodontal disease. However, experts do stop short of saying there is a cause-and-effect between gum disease. Yet, with this new found knowledge of these studies which may suggest that maintaining oral health can help protect overall health, why not take reasonable dental preventative measurements?
