Well, that is something that we asked Dr Paige Woods, from Brighton Dental, and she took the time to explain to us that unlike many other health problems, Lyme Disease can actually grow and feed from other infections in the body. This means that if there is anything else wrong with the patient, the Lyme Disease is going to capitalize on that and just get worse, and spread even further. When you team this up with the fact that the majority of people are walking round right now with gum disease, tooth decay, and plaque all in their mouth, you start to realize that people with Lyme Disease need to start paying a lot more attention to their dental hygiene.
As soon as you realize this, however, there is an immediate benefit: the quicker that you treat the infection problems in your mouth, the sooner that you can start to get your Lyme Disease under control. They are truly connected, so when one starts to get treated by Dr Paige Woods or another dentist from Brighton Dental, you will start to see a slow and gradual improvement in your Lyme Disease symptoms.
