The systemic movement and behavior of periodontal pathogens

from Dentistry Today

The concept of sterile blood no longer exists. Bacteremia occurs when pathogens enter the bloodstream. Many microbes simply enter the bloodstream transiently. They are shed from the primary biofilm found in the mouth by chewing or routine dental hygiene at home. Higher concentrations of pathogens enter the blood by invasive dental procedures, including mechanical debridement, extractions and endodontic procedures. It requires only 60 seconds for a pathogen to travel anywhere in the body as a result of an invasive dental procedure. more
