Dental Disease: How is it Affecting Your Body

February 11, 2014

"Dental disease is not only a disease of the mouth but also a disease of the body. Anytime part o your body becomes diseased, it stresses your entire body's immune system. The stress can be most harmful when the disease is a chronic one, which is the form of dental disease from which most patients suffer. Dental disease, especially gum disease, starts slowly, increases in severity, and then tenaciously hangs on, overloading your body's protective defenses twenty-four hours a day, for as long as you have the disease. Not only does this drain you of energy, it ends up drastically lowering your resistance to any other disease to which you may be exposed. When you look at it this way, you can no longer afford to think of dental disease as insignificant or harmless condition that affects only your teeth.
