Gum disease is a bacterial infection and a major source of inflammation in your body. Scientists believe that this chronic inflammation may be responsible for a connection between periodontal gum disease and other serious medical conditions.

The Manual of Clinical Periodontitis and Journal of Periodontitis used by gum disease specialists list the following diseases as being linked to not taking care of your oral health and living with active gum disease:

• Diabetes
• Heart attacks
• Lung infections
• Strokes
• Pre-term babies
• Erectile dysfunction
• Alzheimer’s
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Colon cancer
• Osteoporosis
• Brain abscesses
• Mouth and throat cancer
• Gastric conditions
• Chronic fatigue
• Pancreatic cancer

We don’t know about you, but after reading this list, choosing to brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly seems more important than ever.
