“We all think that cholesterol is important to heart disease. The health of your gums is a more important predictor of whether you will have a heart attack or not.”

The health of your mouth, teeth and gums has a direct impact on your overall health. Recent reports have linked gum disease with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and low-birthwieght babies. Furthermore, researchers have found that a history of gum disease can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 64%. The bacteria that cause the gums to become inflamed can travel throughout the body.
