Recent studies have shown that there is a mouth-body connection. Gum disease can have a impact on your body. Studies have shown that there is a association between gum disease and diseases such as stroke, diabetes and heart disease. Gingivitis is a early stage of gum disease. It is when your gums are infected due to the accumulation of bacteria and plaque above the gum line.

If that is untreated, it can lead to periodontitis, which is a more serious and harmful phase of infection. And it is at this stage that studies have shown that there is a association between periodontitis and diseases in the body. Over 75% of Americans over the age of 35 have some form of gum disease.

The way to combat this is to eliminate bacteria. As stated earlier, gum disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque above the gum line. Plaque contains over 400 types of bacteria and other organisms. Toothpastes and popular mouthwash brands are not effective enough at eliminating bacteria due to the fact that one still experiences bad breath.

You can treat yourself by using PureOxyWash. You can tell that PureOxyWash works due to the fact that one wont experience morning breath anymore.

 

 

* Stroke = Among dentate subjects with severe periodontal bone loss, mean CPT was significantly greater (1.20+/-1.00 mm versus 0.73+/-0.89 mm; P=0.003). CPT increased with more severe bone loss (upper versus lower tertile bone loss; P=0.049; adjusted for age, sex, and hypertension). This apparent dose-response effect was more evident among never-smokers. In a fully adjusted multivariate logistic regression model, severe periodontal bone loss was associated with a nearly 4-fold increase in risk for the presence of carotid artery plaque (adjusted odds ratio, 3.64; CI, 1.37 to 9.65).

* Diabetes = T2DM patients showed a significantly lower number of teeth present (P = 0.002); a significant increase in number of probing depths >4 mm, and percent of pocket depths >4 mm (P = 0.04 and P = 0.05, respectively); periodontitis (P = 0.046); bleeding on probing (P = 0.02); and plaque index (P = 0.01). A significant association with diabetes was detected for plaque (X2= 4.46; P <0.05) and bleeding on probing (X2= 3.60; P <0.05). Concerning bacteria prevalence, a positive association was detected for P. gingivalis (X2= 2.80; P <0.05) and T. forsythensis (X2= 3.87; P <0.05). Presence of plaque was positively associated with case status (odds ratio [OR] = 1.3; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.2, 3.6) and with prevalence of P. gingivalis and T. forsythensis (OR = 1.2, 95% CI: 1.3, 2.2; and 1.2, 95% CI: 1.2, 1.8, respectively).

* Heart Disease = Our data provide evidence of a direct relationship between periodontal microbiology and subclinical atherosclerosis. This relationship exists independent of C-reactive protein.
