Brushing and flossing may save your life! Have you noticed that your gums are bleeding? Bleeding gums are infected gums. Thousands of scientific studies over the last ten years have proven that if your gums are infected your health is affected:

  • Heart disease is increased 200%.

  • Stroke is increased 300%.

  • Osteoporosis is increased 200%.

  • Respiratory infections are increased by 500%.

  • Diabetics with bleeding gums increase their risk of dying by 400-700%.

  • A recent Harvard study shows a 62% increase in pancreatic cancer if you have gum disease.

  • Premature birth and low birth weight babies is increased 700%.

  • Pregnant women with gum disease have a 1 in 7 chance that their baby will be born completely healthy and grow to a normal size.

  • Equally alarming are the results of new research that show the brains of Alzheimer’s patients can be infected with the same germs known to cause bleeding gums.

  • Even erectile dysfunction and some forms of cancer are now being linked to bleeding gums.

Untreated gum disease is a major obstacle to optimal health for a large percentage of the population. As a comprehensive dental professional, Dr. Brady  is focused on providing modern dental treatment that will treat your gum disease and as a consequence of the treatment, improve your entire body’s health. Treatment may include targeted nutritional support, ultrasonic cleaners, dental lasers and ozone therapy. These therapies have been shown to reduce gum infection and stimulate repair of the injured tissues. All of these treatments are done in a comfortable way, usually without anesthetics. These treatments generally do not involve the cutting away of gum tissue, which is often done as part of traditional therapy, which can cause extensive gum recession.

Treating bleeding gums will lower your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, diabetes, some types of cancer, erectile dysfunction, low birth weight babies and possibly even Alzheimer’s.
