What does it mean to have a dental emergency? Does this include something as simple as gingivitis, or does it have to involve a full dental abscess that can deplete our bodies’ resources and prevent the body from defending itself against the attack of viruses like Coronavirus?
We are all subject to bacteria and viruses that put the body at a disadvantage; adding the stress of Coronavirus only makes this worse. When your body is in an optimal state of health, viruses that produce illness with symptoms resolve after the immune system reduces the virus counts to a level where they are defensible. A weakened organ makes it easier for a disease to affect the whole body.
Unhealthy oral bacteria in the mouth can have a more significant damaging effect on the respiratory system. It occurs because the body’s defenses spread thin—our bodies are working overtime on two battlegrounds with bacteria.
When conditions are healthy, the body can cope with the toxic effects of bacteria. If you support your oral health with addressing infections small or large, your body will have more resources to deal with more seriously acute problems such as the Coronavirus.
Each gum infection or dental abscess drains immune resources and prevents the body from defending itself against the attack by viruses. The more support you have at your disposal, the less the effect of any bacterial or viral infections.
We have all met people with loads of unpleasant breath and visible deposits on their teeth. They have a higher probability of high rates of oral cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and many other systemic diseases.
Older patients have a higher mortality rate with the flu or Coronavirus. Their body systems may already be fighting an ongoing disease such as Diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and a history of heart disease.

With periodontal disease, the plaque and calculus that surround the teeth are harboring deadly bacteria. This plaque has effects beyond the oral cavity. Recent articles on psychological well-being have revealed that gut bacteria have an enormous impact on mental health and even depression. Changing the type of gut bacteria can serve to elevate mood, and of course, digestive health.
Patients with certain types of gut bacteria are even more resistant to certain diseases. Some gut bacteria arise directly from the bacteria that grow on the teeth and gums.
We swallow these bacterias that go directed to the gut and possibly survive their journey through the digestive tract to populate the intestines. From there, they can affect general health and mood in a time in history when we are facing a pandemic. Our attitude is critical in times of an epidemic. We must face this with a healthy body and mind.
“The level of C-reactive protein (CRP), which is measured in your blood, increases when there’s inflammation in your body. Your doctor might check your C-reactive protein level for infections or other medical conditions.” According to the Mayo Clinic
Acute cardiac measurement of inflammation called C Reactive Protein or CRP is released when infected gums are not treated and cleaned up. We have significant amounts of literature is repeatable when measured before and after gum treatment.
This reduction in inflammation translates into better cardiac as well as systemic health. Detection of oral disease and prevention of systemic infection starts with a compete f oral examination and evaluation of gum health.
