Tooth infection heart palpitations

We all know how important dental and heart health are to our overall health. Researchers devote a great deal of time and effort to researching similar illnesses and disorders in order to learn how to live long, safe lives. However, researchers have discovered that there is a correlation between dental and cardiovascular health.
You may have heard the news, but researchers have discovered a connection between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. The bad bacteria in the mouth, known as anaerobic bacteria, enters the bloodstream through the soft tissues of the mouth and deep gum pockets. With bad oral hygiene, anaerobic bacteria has a chance to flourish, causing dental issues such as gum disease and regression, cavities, plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and bone loss.
When bacteria enters the bloodstream, it can cause havoc in the body, particularly because of how well and efficiently the heart pumps blood to vital organs like the brain. When harmful bacteria from an infected mouth lodges itself within a blood vessel, for example, it may build up on the vessel wall, obstructing blood flow and eventually leading to a dangerous blockage. Plaque accumulation in blood vessels can make it difficult for blood to circulate freely across the body. A stroke may occur if it affects the blood vessels that supply the brain. Other organs such as the lungs, liver, and kidneys can also be affected.

Are patients with periodontitis, a serious type of gum disease, more likely to develop atrial flutter or fibrillation? The mouth/body link is very true, as your Sonora, CA dentist often emphasizes in our blog, and it can have a long-term effect on those who have poor oral health. Researchers also published results from the first population-based study to actively look at a potential connection between gum disease and atrial fibrillation, findings that may have consequences for those who chose to ignore their oral health.
Researchers looked at nearly 800,000 patient records in order to figure out whether there was a connection between periodontal disease and an increased risk of atrial fibrillation. Although previous research has related inflammation in the development and severity of periodontal disease to chronic health conditions including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, this is the first time a study has looked at whether gum disease can increase a patient’s risk of atrial fibrillation.

Gum disease has been related to an increased risk of heart disease, but a new report from the Journal of Dental Research, published online on July 27, 2016, indicates that a form of tooth infection may be just as risky.
Researchers from the University of Helsinki discovered that people with infections at the tip of a tooth root are 2.7 times more likely to develop acute coronary syndrome, even though they have no other symptoms. The word “acute coronary syndrome” refers to a sudden blockage of the heart’s blood supply. Chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, and nausea are common symptoms.
A total of 508 patients were included in the study, with 36 percent of them having signs of acute coronary syndrome. 58 percent of this population had inflammatory lesions at the root tip, a condition known as apical periodontitis, according to dental tests. This form of low-grade inflammation is related to gum disease, which affects the tissues around the teeth and is thought to be a risk factor for coronary artery disease.

Mary Kay Osborne, of Hammondsport, New York, is a heart survivor. She recently responded to my blog post about early heart attack warning signs, and she mentioned something that caught my eye. According to Dr. Sheila O’Keefe-study, McCarthy’s “jaw or teeth pain” is one of many potential early cardiac warning signs, particularly in women’s heart attacks. Mary Kay responded that she had had a variety of early warning signs, including pain in her jaw and teeth, until her first coronary stent was inserted at the age of 57: “I began having symptoms about eight months before I suspected they were signs of heart problems. The exhaustion and anxiety became unbearable. And the pain in my jaw and teeth became unbearable. I had a couple of teeth pulled that I don’t believe I wanted. My dentist never informed me that I had an infection, only that they needed to be removed. However, I continued to experience phantom pains in the region of the tooth extractions afterward. The mental pressure was excruciating.” ……
