Gum Disease Could Complicate Matters with Ulcers and H. Pylori

More people than you’d expect in Decatur and Atlanta have gum disease. For some it’s in the very early stages, and for others, it’s advancing rapidly and putting their teeth and their health in jeopardy. Many know that gum disease can boost heart disease and stroke risk but did you also know that untreated periodontal disease is linked to ulcers and h. pylori?

Advanced gum disease results in large pockets around the teeth and the larger these pockets, the bigger the health risks. Why? These pockets offer an ideal breeding ground for destructive oral bacteria. That bacteria can be inhaled, ingested, and absorbed in the bloodstream, causing havoc in your body over time. Your lungs, your digestive system, your immune system, your bloodstream could all be affected in addition to your mouth. Many people who have recurring ulcers don’t realize that it could be due to untreated periodontal disease.
