A danger to health, Periodontal disease, converts into a causal factor for many other serious medical conditions.
First, Gingivitis develops in the mouth, then, left untreated, it becomes Periodontal Disease. Irritation of the gums from plaque that builds up along the gum line due to a lack of appropriate dental cleaning quickly develops into Gingivitis.
Gingivitis begins as sore gums, swelling, and periodic bleeding. Left to fester, Gingivitis creates the opportunity for food particles and bacteria to enter deep into the gums. The festering continues, and before you know it, you have periodontal disease, a much more virulent form of Gingivitis.
Periodontal disease creates a new bacterium called Spirochetes. Its spiral shape helps it easily transport from the mouth into the blood stream to other parts of the body.
Spirochetes attack the bony structures in the mouth and the ligaments holding the teeth in place, causing teeth to fall out. These bacterium also cause other weaknesses, leaving the body open to other diseases, including diabetes.
Diabetes, especially Type 2, has been directly linked to Spirochetes according to a number of studies. The studies found that every patient with diabetes exhibited Spirochetes Bacterium in their blood stream and in several vital organs. Consequently, one researcher coined the connection, “Multiple Missing Tooth Syndrome.
