When most people think about periodontal disease, they think about the obvious symptoms: sensitive and receding gums, bleeding when you brush and even eventual tooth loss. It is, after all, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults in America. Did you know, though, that gum disease can affect your health in other ways as well? At Juno Beach Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry in Juno Beach, FL, Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley want you to know how periodontal disease can impact your life as well as how to prevent it before it does.
Hidden Dangers of Gum Disease
When you suffer from periodontal disease, the accumulated bacteria in your mouth can spread throughout your body via your blood stream. This can lead to a variety of potentially life-threatening conditions, even in patients who are otherwise healthy. This mouth-body connection is something many patients are completely unaware of, making them even more vulnerable to the following conditions:
- Pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs)
- General high blood pressure
- Poor diabetes management
- Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
- Coronary artery disease
- Pancreatic cancer
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Fortunately, the periodontal therapy services provided at Juno Beach Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry can help keep your gums and teeth clean and healthy, thereby reducing your risk of developing these kinds of problems.
Take Control of Your Oral Health
If you or someone in your family has begun to notice the signs of periodontal disease, it’s not too late to reclaim your oral health and protect yourself from further damage. Contact us at our Juno Beach, FL office today to find out how Dr. Riley and Dr. Keuning can help you keep your mouth – and the rest of your body – healthy and happy.

As we mentioned in our last post, oral and overall health are tied together in ways most patients never think about. That also extends to the topic of inflammation and stress.
As a society, we seem more stressed now than ever before. For some that’s because of finances while for others it comes from pressure of always being connected through one social media platform or another. But wherever your stress comes, it’s having an impact on your body, including your oral health.
Inflammation if part of the body’s immune response. When it works the way it should, it can be beneficial. Someone who is under a lot of stress, though, may find that his or her body can’t regulate stress properly. That’s when inflammation—which is one of the many symptoms of gum disease—can almost become like a weapon the body uses against itself. In fact, the ADG reported in 2012 that there is indeed a connection between stress and dental health, with the immune system contributing.
What does this mean for patients of Juno Beach Restorative and Aesthetic?
Just as with the hormone situation, it means that regular appointments are important. During a regular visit, Dr. Keuning or Dr. Riley will carefully examine your teeth and gums to look for signs of inflammation or decay. If anything is found, a treatment plan can be put together immediately.
