Decayed teeth harbor bacteria that can travel into the bloodstream causing inflammation and infection wherever it spreads. Those same bacteria can be aspirated into the lungs leading to respiratory infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, and even COPD. There are even some studies that show that bacteria can spread to the nerve channels and be a cause of dementia. People with Diabetes are encouraged to practice good oral health since higher blood sugar levels are at an increased risk with persons suffering from an unhealthy mouth.
Missing teeth make it difficult for a person to chew food properly. Chewing food does a lot more than just breaking down large bites into smaller ones that can be easily swallowed. The actual chewing process releases nutrients from the food, creates saliva for better digestion, and relaxes the lower part of the stomach making it ready to accept and digest food. Missing teeth allows bacteria to accumulate in the hole from the lost tooth and creates difficulty in chewing food into small pieces. Many sufferers of lost teeth swallow food in larger size pieces that causes indigestion and digestive disturbances.
Gum disease, or gingivitis, happens when bacteria builds up in the mouth and attacks the gums. The inflamed gums are prone to bleeding when teeth are brushed or flossed and that gives the bacteria an entryway into the bloodstream. If the bacteria reach the heart, it can contribute to an infection of the inner lining of the heart chambers or valves called endocarditis. Inflammation of the gums can also make it difficult for the body to properly absorb insulin medication that lowers blood sugar levels. This in turn, keeps blood sugar levels high which leads to more infection.
