Can Bacteria in the Mouth Affect Your Heart?

Several studies show that people with gum disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gum. Research has indicated that gum disease increase the risk of heart disease. Scientist believed that inflammation of the gum caused by bacteria in the mouth may be responsible for this likelihood.

While some studies have pointed out a positive relationship between gum disease and stroke, others have found that bacteria linked to gum disease traveled to the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease.
