Peridontal Disease and its affect on the brain and heart

I have been diagnosed with peridontal disease. I have two bridges with crowns in the top of my mouth. What I would like to know is, "if I have all stumps, posts, crowns extracted and have either implants or a denture, will this reverse any damage that the disease has caused to my brain or heart?"

Re: Peridontal Disease and its affect on the brain and heart

Better I suggest to improve your oral hygeine by meticulous cleaning and regular dental visits. Even if you have the teeth removed and implants fitted you can still get peri-implantitis. The link with brain and heart damage has not been established definitively.

Re: Peridontal Disease and its affect on the brain and heart

The latest theory is that periodontal disease may increase the liklihood of Alzheimers disease. If this is correct, people without teeth would be less likely to have Alzheimers. Hardly likely!
