Practicing good oral hygiene is the most important action that a person can take to prevent and treat gum disease.

GUM DISEASES AND OVERALL HEALTH

Every aspect of your mouth is connected to your body’s health physiologically.
Your mouth might dry when you are nervous or salivate when you are hungry. Have you ever wondered why???......
It is because our mouth mirrors our body’s emotions and physiological process. It is said that, "A healthy mouth leads to healthy life".......



There are lot of researches proving connection between state of gums and overall health... The mouth serves as a “window” to the rest of the body, providing signals of general health disorders. For example, mouth lesions may be the first signs of HIV infection, aphthous ulcers are occasionally a manifestation of Coeliac disease or Crohn’s disease, pale and bleeding gums can be a marker for blood disorders, bone loss in the lower jaw can be an early indicator of skeletal osteoporosis, and changes in tooth appearance can indicate bulimia or anorexia. The presence of many compounds (e.g., alcohol, nicotine, opiates, drugs, hormones, environmental toxins, antibodies) in the body can also be detected in the saliva.

Oral conditions have an impact on overall health and disease. Bacteria from the mouth can cause infection in other parts of the body when the immune system has been compromised by disease or medical treatments (e.g., infective endocarditis). Systemic conditions and their treatment are also known to impact on oral health (e.g., reduced saliva flow, altered  balance of oral microorganisms).


This shows that, the status of our gums has been directly related to diseases like diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, artherosclerosis, nutritional deficiencies, blood disorders and many more.
Bad gums can lead to premature delivery of a baby in few pregnant females. Therefore, it is important for a couple to undergo complete oral health check up before family planning to avoid any oral health related complications during pregnancy.
Hence, achieving healthy gums should also be your priority as they are also a part of your body.
