New research found a link between gum disease and cancer

According to a new US research, there is more evidence to suggest that there is a link between advanced gum disease and an increased risk of cancer.
Advanced gum disease, also called periodontitis, is caused by bacterial infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. 

The new study is the largest so far to look at the association using dental examinations to measure gum disease, rather than patient’s self-reports, athough previous research has shown a link between periodontitis and an increased risk of cancer.
