Can Gum Disease Called Pyria Cause Other Infections?

By having gum disease called pyria---can this disease cause you to have several different can's of infection ---and the last 3 years I have continuously been suffering with flu, upper respiratory infection, walking pneumonia, bronchistis, sinus infection, viral infection. Dose having pyria contribute to any of that?

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have gum disease called pyria which is due to inflammation and formation in gums which can cause infection in blood stream as well and it can lead to spread of infection as well through facial spaces and can lead to sinus infection and upper respiratory tract infection. Need not to worry. You should visit Periodontist once and get it examined. Start treatment after proper examination. you should go for scaling and root planning of mouth. You should take Listerine mouth wash and do warm saline rinses. Take antibiotic as well to subside infection in your body.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
