Can dental problems have an effect on your health?

I have lots of dental problems at the dentist every 2 months, fixing fillings and other problems, can this have an effect on your overall health as I get sick quickly with flu and if there is a virus around I always catch it, or maybe stomach problems? I know it can make your breath smell bad.

Dental problems can pose risks for your overall health, especially if the problems are not diagnosed and treated early enough. I read on thisisdentistry.co.uk that dental problems can even affect your sleeping patterns; some complications from cosmetic dentistry concerns can also have a great impact on one's self confidence.

The most dangerous dental/systemic health problem is uncontrolled gum disease. The mass of inflamed tissue lets bacteria of several species enter arterioles, and all the major arteries. Bacteria then cause inflammation of the arterial walls, conducive to arterial deposits. It is no coincidence that the bacterial species in the gums and the bacterial population of bacterial plaque is almost the same.
