Here’s a 2 minutes and 56 seconds How Gum Disease Becomes A Threat To Overall Health video. See full transcript below.
The human body houses a huge population of bacteria. In reality, these microorganisms can be found in almost any part of your body. Also, bacteria are not all that bad.
As a matter of fact, they usually are harmless. They even help in important body processes and in protecting your body from pathogens. However, problem arises when certain conditions disrupt the balance of bacterial population. One of these conditions is gum disease.
Experts have found the specific bacterium that is known to be the primary cause of periodontitis is capable of hi-jacking your very own immune system.
The bacterium prevents your immune cells from eliminating pathogens and the inflammation never ceases. This is one of the main reasons why gum disease is difficult to deal with.
In addition, because the immune system has been compromised, people with gum disease are also more prone to other serious health concerns. This makes it all the more important to follow preventative measures when it comes to the well-being of your teeth and gums.
