Absolutely!: If you had an infection anywhere else in your body wouldn't you seek immediate treatment? Gum disease has been implicated in low birth weight babies, pre-term deliveries, heart disease, diabetes, and oral cancer, among other problems. Don't wait, call your dentist now. If necessary your dentist will also get a periodontist involved in your care.

You should, ASAP: The recent studies find that bacteria and inflammation (gum disease) in your mouth are also linked to other problems like heart attack, dementia and jeopardize your overall health. See your dentist for consultation and treatment ASAP.
