Gum disease linked to cancer in older women

Studies reveal that gum disease could increase the risk of cancer in older women. Those cancers include melanoma, gallbladder, lung and breast cancers. Here is why you need to see the dentist regularly and practice oral hygiene.

Key takeaways:

– The study suggests oral hygiene and treating periodontal disease are cancer-preventive measures.

– Periodontitis increases the risk of inflammation as bacteria in the mouth enters the bloodstream.

–  Symptoms of gum disease include swelling, bleeding gums and loose teeth.

Take care of your health and see your dentist for check-ups and treatment.
