Boost Your Heart Health with Healthy Gums

World Heart Day, reminds us of millions of lives lost to heart disease every year; one of the leading causes of mortality in India and the world. Did you know that your gum health has a direct link on heart health? Several research studies have indicated that poor gum health also means poor heart health. Other reasons for predictors of heart disease could be lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, smoking etc.

 
 

What is the heart-gum link?

Inflammation or swelling of gums, a sign of gum disease, leads to hardened arteries that can eventually lead to a stroke. When sore and infected gums are disrupted even slightly, the bacteria can get into the blood stream and can trigger inflammation throughout the body including the heart. Studies show that the bacteria found in periodontal disease (gum disease) – including Streptococcus Sanguis, bacterium (instrumental in strokes)—can lead to chronic condition like heart disease and diabetes.

Symptoms of Gum Disease:

Sore, swollen gums are the main symptom of gum disease which is of two main types:

arrow

Gingivitis, which causes red, painful, tender gums and

arrow

Periodontitis which leads to infected pockets of germy pus.

With infection, the bacteria and other toxins spread below the gum line causing inflammation.

Causes: People with gum diseases generally have poor lifestyle habits of not flossing or brushing properly, poor oral hygiene.

Prevention measures:

Get regular dental checkups -- including dental X-rays

Tooth brushing twice a day and regular flossing can prevent and also reverse the earliest form of gum disease, called gingivitis.

Eat healthy, quit habits like smoking

Watch for symptoms of gum disease especially if you have a history of heart disease, stroke, or type 2 diabetes and seek treatment

Maintain a healthy mouth and reduce the burden of heart risk. Your heart will love you for it.
