Re: Gum disease and Psoriasis


Both Psoriasis and periodontal diseases are characterized by an exaggerated immune response to the microbiota residing on the epithelial surfaces (skin).

Also,

""PD involves infection with a range of gram-negative bacteria that invade the superficial and deep gingival tissues. It is biologically plausible that chronic low-grade periodontal inflammation may stimulate the Psoriasis pathway directly or via induction of a systemic inflammatory response," Dr. Nakib says."
