Bleeding Gums and Chronic Inflammation

Studies show that painless inflammation may cause heart trouble and may even be more dangerous than high cholesterol.

Inflammation can occur as a part of an acute infection. An acute infection causes your liver to increase its production of C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is a chemical necessary for fighting injury and infection. When severe infections occur, blood levels of CRP can reach 500 to 1,000 times normal levels. It binds to invading microorganisms allowing your immune system to kill them. However, when this acute phase response is chronically elevated, a number of bad side affects can occur, including Bleeding Gums and chronic inflammation.

Bleeding gums are the tell tale sign of chronic inflammation in the mouth. Research is now showing that CRP levels are elevated in people with gum disease.

Good news is that treating gum disease is a simple process due to recent advances in technology and an understanding of the proper protocols.
