To understand how the mouth can affect the health of the body, it helps to understand what can go wrong in the first place. Bacteria that builds up on teeth make gums more prone to infection. The immune system moves in to combat the infection and the gums become inflamed. The inflammation continues unless the infection is treated. Over time, inflammation and the chemicals it releases eat away at the gums and bone structure that hold teeth in place. The result is gum disease, also known as periodontitis. Inflammation can also cause problems in the rest of the body - such as heart disease or stroke. To avoid these issues, maintain your optimal dental health - at Downtown Dental Care in Palm Beach Gardens, we provide all dental services in one location.
