A recent study revealed that patients with untreated sleep apnea were more likely to develop periodontitis, or gum disease. Gum disease affects more than half of all American adults over 35, and obstructive sleep apnea is also extremely common. Both conditions become more common with age. If left untreated, periodontal disease and sleep apnea can increase the risk of heart disease and other serious health problems. http://www.drsetti.com/link-between-periodontitis-and-sleep-apnea

Periodontal disease, also commonly referred to as Gingivitis, is an inflammation that causes tenderness and bleeding from the gums. Although there are other causes that put a person at risk, poor dental hygiene is often the main culprit. Once the disease has developed, if untreated, it is possible to advance into the more dangerous condition of periodontitis.http://www.drsetti.com/how-prevent-periodontal-disease
