Gum Disease and Other Systemic Diseases

Gum Disease and Other Systemic Diseases

  • Osteoporosis

    Links between osteoporosis and loss of bone density in the jaw has been discovered by researchers. Studies suggest that the development of osteoporosis may lead to eventual tooth loss. Since osteoporosis causes extensive decrease in density of the bones that support teeth, tooth loss will occur as the condition progresses.

  • Respiratory Disease

    Leading research found that bacteria found in the oral cavity can easily be aspirated into the lungs. The aspiration of bacteria can lead to the development of respiratory diseases such as pneumonia. Individuals with periodontal disease are at a higher risk for developing respiratory diseases.

  • Cancer

    Studies have consistently shown that men who develop gum disease are 49% more likely to develop kidney cancer, 54% more likely to develop pancreatic cancer, and 30% more likely to develop cancers of the blood.
