The Oral-Systemic Link

Did you know that gum disease increases your risk for serious systemic health problems including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s? Did you know that plaque buildup on your teeth can be a sign of and contribute to plaque buildup in your arteries?

Your Bloodstream is a Super Highway

Any pathogens (bad bacteria) or infections in your mouth have a direct pathway through the gums and into the bloodstream to spread throughout the body.

  • Tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections can cause other problems elsewhere in the body.
  • Old amalgam fillings can leach mercury into the bloodstream and cause mercury toxicity.
  • Other dental materials and metals can cause allergic reactions in some patients.
