Strong Relation Between Gums Diseases and COVID 19: Most people infected with the coronavirus COVID 19 recover, but some are more severe.
Scientists have been working since the beginning of the epidemic to find out why this happens, and now a possible cause has emerged.
In fact, there is a link between gums diseases and COVID 19 complications and deaths.
A study from McGill University in Canada found that people with gingivitis had an 8.8-fold higher risk of dying from COVID 19 than others.
Similarly, such people are 3.5 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID 19 and 4.5 times more likely to need a ventilator.
The researchers said that research shows that good oral health can help prevent COVID 19 complications, as there is a strong link between gum disease and serious code consequences.
Bacterial accumulation between teeth and gums can lead to edema and a variety of side effects if left untreated.
Good oral hygiene, including daily brushing, brushing, and dental checkups can be helpful.
According to researchers, gum disease is already considered a risk factor for a number of diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and respiratory diseases.
The study analyzed electronic records for the teeth and health of 568 patients from Qatar’s Hamad Medical Corporation.
After considering various factors, the researchers found that the level of inflammation in the blood of people suffering from gum disease is very significant.
This inflammatory reaction can lead to complications and death in patients experiencing severe severity of COVID 19, he said.
“We already suspected that people with gum disease would be more prone to COVID 19 because of the higher levels of inflammation in their bodies,” he said.
However, he said the research was somewhat limited because it did not explain the relationship between gum disease and COVID 19 results.
In addition, the research did not have much data and more research is needed.
He added that until concrete results are obtained, it is important for people to take care of oral health as there is a link between the two diseases.
The results of the study were published in the medical journal Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
