Treating Gum Conditions In Kidney Disease Patients

Share

People who are affected by chronic kidney disease often have poor health outcomes because of an increase in cardiovascular disease. Some studies have shown that those with kidney disease  are linked to gum conditions such as periodontitis.

Treating periodontitis can significantly reduce the risk of fatal heart disease in these patients with chronic kidney disease. Studies show that more than 85% of these patients do have gum disease because of failure to remove dental plaque. Bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause clots and narrowing of arteries.
