[Question] ||| "Is there a link between gum disease and other diseases or bodily ailments?"

 

 

[Answer] |||  "Scientific American has devoted an entire issue to the studies linking Gum Disease to various health problems, like arthritis, heart disease, and various forms of cancer.  We need to remember that virtually everything that enters the body does so through the mouth!"
