Bacteria and other microorganisms are normally found in the human body. Usually, they do not put you at risk. They even help protect your body from other pathogenic microbes. But then, there are certain triggers that cause a disruption in the bacterial population.

As a result, the bad bacteria takeover and grow exponentially. You might be surprised to learn that one of the main causes of this circumstance is gum disease.

Researchers have discovered that a specific bacterium present in most cases of periodontitis has the ability to disarm your immune system. That is, the bacterium can prevent your immune cells from eliminating the pathogens.

Plus, this also causes inflammation to worsen in order to provide food for the rest of the population of bad bacteria. Because the immune system has been severely weakened, individuals suffering from gum disease are actually more prone to other serious health concerns. Hence, health professionals put a lot of emphasis in the prevention of gum disease.
