Protect Yourself from the Hidden Dangers of Gum Disease with Dr. Isaacson in OKC

February 6, 2014

Shutterstock Healthy GumsWhen you think of gum disease, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Most likely, the words “periodontal disease” evoke images of bleeding gums and even missing teeth. While it is true that untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, this common condition can result in a variety of other lesser known complications. At Joe Isaacson Dental in Oklahoma City, OK, we treat our patients with laser periodontal therapy to help maintain not only their oral health, but their overall health as well.

The Mouth-Body Connection

When a patient suffers from periodontal disease, the bacteria that causes inflammation, redness and bleeding can seep into the bloodstream that flows throughout the body. If allowed to progress untreated, the disease can spread to other organs and tissues, wreaking havoc on many of the body’s vital systems. Some complications that have been found to correspond with periodontal disease are:

  • Cancer of the blood and pancreas
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Preterm birth and low birth weight babies (in mothers with gum disease)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Respiratory problems

Fortunately for patients affected by gum disease, treatments like laser periodontal therapy at Joe Isaacson Dental drastically diminish the chances of developing these potentially life-threatening conditions.
