Influence of periodontal disease on viral and bacterial infections

March 23, 2020

Our dear patients, clients, and people who care about their health and know that your body's immune system is the most powerful protection against viruses and pathological bacteria.

In this challenging time, it is my obligation to educate, warn and help people get rid of the most common pathological conditions in the mouth in order to help their immune system to be stronger.

More than 538 million people are diagnosed with periodontal disease which can dramatically decrease the strength of the immune system and makes one vulnerable to viruses and pathological bacteria. Bacteria which are the cause of periodontal disease in the mouth (Porphyromonas, Prevotellaand Fusobacteria) are participating in the development of pneumonia.

People with periodontal disease are more prone to get respiratory infections because of the overload of their immune system and the presence of pathological bacteria in their mouths.

Mouth breathers who have periodontal disease could have aerobic bacteria, like Streptococci, to be part of periodontal tissue inflammation. Streptococci is the main bacteria that cause pneumonia and respiratory infections.

Please, be responsible for your own health and do not allow the periodontal disease to weaken your immune system. Make an appointment for your periodontal tissue examination and if necessary, treatment, in order to stay in good health.

As the situation around the novel coronavirus continues to evolve, our highest priorities are the health and safety of our patients, our team, and the well being of the communities we serve.

As part of efforts to reduce the spread of coronavirus, Dr. Gorbatov and DG Dentistry have enhanced its cleaning and sanitation policies. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

Our office is open for any dental emergency you may have, including acute pain, infection, swelling, bleeding, and dental trauma.

Please, call us at (954) 458-9999 to make your appointment.

Thank you so much for understanding and we wish you well.

Sincerely, Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov and Associates
