Some studies have shown a connection between gum disease and heart disease. It would seem that, as a patient’s case of gum disease worsens, bacteria and plaque are able to gain access to other parts of the body, possibly contributing to other health problems.
But even if there isn’t a connection, the two do have something in common—CoQ10 can be used to treat or prevent both. CoQ10 is found in the body and in commonly eaten foods. It can also be produced in a laboratory. In studies, patients with heart disease were found to be deficient in CoQ10. Through a CoQ10 supplement, though, it may be possible to reserve or outright prevent heart problems, and other kinds of problems in the body, including:
- High blood pressure
- Mitral valve prolapse
- Congestive heart failure
- Immune deficiencies
Gum disease is another condition that CoQ10 can help with. It may be applied topically to the patient’s gum tissue or taken by mouth as a pill. Either way, patients can experience great benefits to their oral and overall health.
Do you have questions about gum disease and how it can be treated? Call Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic for an appointment. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley offer exception cosmetic and restorative care to patients from Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, North Palm Beach, or Tequesta.
