We all beautiful much identify that for cardiovascular diseases are responsible smoking, heavy weight, high cholesterol levels and hypertension. However, recent studies in Europe and America have added to these factors and periodontal disease. But how dental health affects us in our hearts?
The periodontal diseases, gingivitis, affect the gums and tissues that support the teeth are the most common cause of tooth loss gaffer. If not treated early, gingivitis (gum swelling, irritation, bleeding), causing periodontal (gum heavy bleeding, pus, bad smell, bad taste). If Teeth are not treated, the teeth become loose, and when they lose their support, must be exported.
How, while, periodontal disease increases the risk for cardiovascular disease-The relationship between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease has emerged for more than 10 years. It is scientifically accepted that chronic gingivitis contributes to narrowing and blockage of the arteries in the following ways:
• The bacteria enter the bloodstream and cowering in atherosclerosis plaques in the coronary arteries of the heart. In this way can cause the formation of a blood clot, which can cause occlusion of the vessel.
• Chronic inflammation stimulates the immune system resulting in the production of chemical substances that favor the development of high-cholesterol, atherosclerosis plaque.
• The periodontal diseases increase the presence of proteins in the blood of inflammation, such as CRP, fibrin and cholesterol HDL.
According to the latest data of laboratory and epidemiological studies (American Academy of Period ontology) seems that those who suffer from periodontal disease are at two time’s greater risk of fatal myocardial infarction than those who have healthy based. See Evidence Here
Also, according to recent scientific data announced at the 14th International Symposium on Atherosclerosis and Related Risk Factors, held in November 2010, the American Institute of Cardiology, it makes us easier hypertensive and hypertensive aggravates the situation, while the risk occurrence of renal or vascular injury almost five times in subjects with severe periodontal disease;
Maintaining periodontal health, along with control of the other known risk factors smoking, hypertension, and elevated cholesterol levels may be an important step in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
