PETALING JAYA: Experts are warning that poor dental health can lead to diabetes and heart disease.
Jazli Aziz, a senior lecturer at Universiti Malaya’s oral and craniofacial sciences department, told FMT oral bacteria produce toxins that travel to other parts of the body through blood circulation.
These bacteria can trigger various physiological responses that may result in the development of heart disease and diabetes.
