There is a wide range of bacteria in our mouth.One of them is Porphymonas gingivalis, causes the gum disease.

The big group of bacteria grow and forming a plaque, and the worse one they release toxins and cause inflammation.

Once the oral cavity is infected by P. gingivalis, they may access the brain through some pathway including: cranial nerves, monocytes, endothelial cell in the blood brain barriers.

When P. gingivalis enter the brain, they spread slowly for years and also damage neuron to neuron.

Gum disease or gingivitis is common and preventable. Symptoms include:

- swollen
- red
- and tender gums.

Regular dentist visits are important for gum disease prevention and treatments.

Treatment includes professionally cleaning around teeth to prevent bone damage. Prevention can begin at home by brushing and flossing twice a day.
