Did you know that there is a correlation between the bacteria found in the mouth and gums to heart disease? Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing is not a normal condition. If you have a heart condition, it is not good to have your gums bleed. Some patients may not be aware of an underlying heart condition… so to be on the safe side and keep as healthy as possible, treat your gums before they worsen and possibly cause harm to your heart. If you are already under treatment for a heart condition, ask your cardiologist about this correlation and how it could affect you personally.
