Gum disease and rheumatoid arthritis – what’s the connection?

Gum disease involves inflammation of the gums and rheumatoid arthritis involves inflammation of the joints. Recent research has shown these two conditions may be linked.

Key takeaways:

– People who have rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to have gum disease.

– People with fewer teeth do not respond as well to treatment for their rheumatoid arthritis.

– It is not yet known whether having one condition causes the other to develop.

– Make sure your dentist knows if you have rheumatoid arthritis so they can check for early signs of gum disease.

“Having proper oral hygiene can help prevent gum disease and other inflammations.”
