Periodontal Disease and Respiratory Infection

Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills, CA

It’s becoming increasingly common knowledge that gum disease is linked to a plethora of health problems. But did you know that your gum health is linked to the health of your lungs, too? Gum disease could be forcing your body to constantly fight an active infection that enters your bloodstream and that impacts many of your body’s essential systems. Your oral health is a priority at Dr. Kathleen Carson’s practice in Agoura Hills, CA. Integrative Dental Arts can provide you with a gum assessment as well as periodontal treatment options that can prevent gum disease from worsening as well as prevent it in the first place.

Gum Health Tied to Lung Health

Poor gum health is shown to be linked to respiratory infections such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) as well as pneumonia. If you have signs of gum disease, it’s important to act swiftly so that you don’t put your oral health as well as your general health at risk. The worse your gum disease is, the higher the chance of resulting complications as well as the toll periodontitis takes on your smile.
