An investigation from Italy published in October (2018) revealed a connection between gum disease and high blood pressure. The researchers reviewed records of medical and dental exams of more than 3,600 people with high blood pressure and found that those with healthier gums had lower blood pressure and that medication for high blood pressure was less effective in those with gum disease.

If you have signs of gum disease – whether or not you have high blood pressure – be sure to see your dentist promptly.
