Bleeding Gums and Your Health

Bleeding Gums see your holistic dentist

Gum disease alters the defence mechanisms of the gum tissues and supporting structures surrounding the teeth. This allows bacteria that should only be present in your mouth to enter the blood stream and spread to other parts of the body.

These bacteria, such as p.gingivalis found in cases of periodontal disease, has been linked to heart disease, kidney disease, pancreatic cancer, bowel cancer and numerous health issues like lung infections and pneumonia in the elderly.

Snoring is Serious

snoring and sleep apnoea treatments at Evolve Dental Brisbane

Snoring is often taken as a joke between families and friends but snoring is actually a serious health problem. People who snore do not sleep properly and risk stopping breathing whilst their families often also can’t sleep for all the noise.

Snorers find it frustrating as the remedies they try often do not work properly for them and they wake up in the morning feeling tired. Remedies could be a mouth guard to open the airway passages, nose guards or trying to sleep in a special position.
