Keep your gums healthy so that you are at a lower risk of developing common chronic diseases. According to The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, if your gums are healthy, you’re less likely to suffer from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease and dementia. Though more research is needed to determine the exact link between gum disease and other chronic conditions, researchers believe that the inflammation bacteria causes may be a key factor.
Healthy gums are pink and firm, and don’t bleed.
Diseased gums may be red, swollen, tender or bleeding.
Common symptoms are chronic bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth, pain while chewing, sensitive or loose teeth, gums that don’t adhere to your teeth and a mismatched bite or ill-fitting dentures.
