Sick At Heart? It May Begin With Gum Disease When you hear the term “heart healthy,” the first thing that comes to mind may not be your oral health. But you shouldn’t overlook the strong connection between gum disease and heart conditions. Gum disease, medically known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the oral areas that surround the teeth.
