Research has established a higher risk of heart disease for individuals who have hidden tooth infections Tooth infections are quite common today. You can blame it on the contaminated environment due to pollution or the deteriorating immunity of human beings but it is a fact that instances of tooth infections have been increasing day by day. Now one should understand that tooth infections are treatable even with simple medications. Basic tooth infections such as bacterial growth on the gums and tooth cavity can be cured with primary medical attention. However there are a few types of tooth infections which remain undetected for a long time. These type of chronic tooth infections are usually painless and without the knowledge of the infected person they start rotting dental and gum tissue. But the consequence of these hidden tooth infections can be much more dangerous than one would imagine. It might surprise the average person to know that there is ample evidence to suggest that hidden tooth infections can be a significant cause of heart attacks and even brain strokes. Medical researchers have always been intrigued by the correlation of heart disease and a history of tooth infections. Initially medical practitioners did not suspect any connection between tooth infections and heart diseases as the two conditions seems totally unrelated. However when more and more instances of heart disease and tooth infection were discovered in patients simultaneously comprehensive researches were funded which resulted in the establishment of a higher risk of heart disease for individuals who have hidden tooth infections. Alternately research has found a strong link between gum disease and tooth infections and ischemic attacks. A simple explanation would be as follows. Infections push bacteria into the blood stream leading to heart infections or endocarditis. The bacteria can also lead to blood clotting which can in turn result in a stroke or ischemic attack. While this is a simplified explanation a more detailed analysis of the relationship will find multiple way in which dental infections can result in an increased of heart disease and stroke. If this is cause for worry then consult your dental practitioner immediately for a more thorough explanation. The most important thing to take away from this is not all dental infections are visible and diagnosed in time. There are certain tooth infections which remain undiagnosed due to a lack of clear symptoms making dental health of paramount importance. One of the patients from USA had discussed the same problem in Dentzz Review blog. Such a situation can very well be avoided if one acquires the habit of visiting the dentist for a regular check-up. There are many quality dentists operating in all the major cities of the country. It is just a matter of sincerity that we pay a visit to one of those dental clinics every 6 months to ensure optimum overall health and wellbeing.
