"Dirty dentures? Dangerous MRSA may be lurking, dentists say:

Here’s some bad news for the estimated 20 million people in the U.S. who wear full or partial dentures: There’s a good chance your choppers are covered with thin layers of icky, sticky bacteria known as biofilms.

Worse, some of the biofilm germs may be bad bugs such as MRSA, or drug-resistant staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which can lurk on the dentures until they’re breathed into the lungs, where experts fear they may cause nasty, hard-to-treat infections........

Bad news for everyone, many many infections enter the body through the oral cavity. Dentures or natural teeth. They lurk under the gingival sulcus, the space between the tooth and the gum. Yes, these infections are hard to treat.
There are massive numbers of blood vessels supplying the oral cavity any of which may cause infections in virtually any area of the body via these blood vessels. Heart, joints, brain as well as lungs.
