CARROLLTON, Texas, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Scaggs will be presenting this information at More at Lakeview at Josey Ranch (2105 N Josey Lane, Carrollton, TX, 75006), an independent living facility.

The Connection:

Oral health can provide warning signs for other diseases or conditions. Studies show that people with moderate to severe gum disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with otherwise healthy gums.

Many of the risk factors for gum disease are the same for heart disease, including tobacco use, poor nutrition and diabetes.

The Similarities:

Both gum and heart disease are affected by plaque buildup. Inflammation and plaque buildup in the mouth has been linked to plaque buildup on the heart when patients have heart disease.

Other Connections:

Other health conditions linked to oral health include endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, and immune system disorders.

Dr. Scaggs will be presenting this information at More at Lakeview at Josey Ranch (2105 N Josey Lane, Carrollton, TX, 75006), an independent living facility.
