Researchers at the University of Michigan have recently identified a bacterium that causes gum disease and deteriorates the jaw. Dr. Yizu Jiao and Dr. Noahiro Inohara of the U-M Health System, found that significant bone loss can occur as a result of severe gum disease.
The main culprit is a bacterium called NI1060, which triggers the Nod1 proteins to create bone-destroying cells. The bones closest to the oral cavity are part of the jawbone and are weakened over time. To help to combat against these harmful effects, take a trip to Preferred Dental Care Chelsea.
