Hudson, NY Dentist, Dr. Robert Danz Is Concerned About The Connection Between Heart Disease and Gum Disease

Here is the story from PR web about Dr. Danz

Dr. Danz is a New York Dentist interested in helping patients avoid or mitigate the possible links between heart disease and gum disease.

Given that p gingivalis has been found in the plaque lining the heart arteries, it is indeed a bit suspicious.   This bacteria has been identified as one that causes gum disease.

The tissue between blood vessels and gums is indeed rather thin.   It does not take a great imagination to realize the likelihood of  these bacteria spreading right into the blood stream.

This is a bit scary.  And no one wants to scare anyone.  I should mention that while researchers have found a lot of connections between various diseases and gum disease, in few instances are they absolutely certain of what that connection is.

Research is ongoing, but many professionals and researchers are confident of the connections.  Diabetes,  heart disease, lung infections, mouth cancer, preterm babies and a number of other potential connections have been found.

More research is needed of course.  But it any case, it makes it even more important to spend time mitigating or preventing gum disease.

Gum disease, unfortunately, is also the number one cause of tooth loss!   Many dental professionals will tell you that about 75% of people or 3 out of every 4 have some gum disease right now!

That's not meant to scare you.  It is only meant to underscore the serious nature of this problem.

I wrote the book:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease: A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease to help people understand more about this problem.   I wrote it in easy-to-understand terms.    What  you do at home has the greatest impact on your dental health.

Thanks to Dr. Danz for helping to spread the word about this terrible disease that so many have and so many are unaware of.
