When there is chronic infection anywhere in the body, it causes inflamation, and it can become a burden on the patient's immune system.
When our immune systems are burdened, it makes them less effective at fighting off other diseases.
Although it may seem strange that cardiovascular disease may be related to an infection that you can't see or feel and that your general dentist isn't trained to look for in your jaw, it is not surprising to those who have studied the research that has established an indisputable link between heart disease and gum disease.
Dr. Panahpour is an expert at removal of infection that is causing a burden on a patient's immune system, often located at the site of old tooth extractions and root canals, where the patient never feels or sees it, because of it's location deep in the jaw, where the nerve of the tooth is already dead, or has been removed.
Removal of this infection often helps patients to become as healthy as they can be, because their immune system is no longer burdened with something it is not able to heal.
