Chronic kidney disease can range from a mild condition with no or few symptoms to a very serious condition where the kidneys stop working, sometimes called kidney failure.

Research suggests that there could be an association between gum disease and chronic kidney diseases. The bacteria from the dental pocket in patients with gum disease and the circulating inflammation that this causes seems to be the connection.

Professional treatment of gum and good oral hygiene will result in a healthier mouth with less inflammation, which is a benefit to everyone.
