Periodontal Disease and Heart Disese

Here is a statement from the American Heart Association on the association between periodontal disease and coronary artery disease.

The mouth is teeming with bacteria and serious infections, such as endocarditis, are commonly from an odontogenic source.  The purported pathophysiology behind periodontal disease and coronary artery disease includes indirect mechanisms such as inflammation and mimicry and direct mechanisms such as bacterial invasion of atherosclerotic plaques.  

The data to date support an association between periodontal disease and heart disease independent of known confounders, they do not, however, support a causative relationship.Last, there is no convincing data to suggest that treatment of periodontal disease will impact, in the long term, cardiovascular disease.

Heart disease has also been associated with Chlaymydia pneumoniae and Helicobacter infections. Association does not mean causation and to date coronary artery disease is not treated with antibacterials.


  1. My dentist has told me that I may have a form of gum disease, and I may need cosmetic dentistry. I certainly hope it isn't due to heart disease, and I need to see a heart surgeon instead. I would much rather have bad gums than a bad heart, or both. It's really incredible to me how much our bodies are connected.

  2. Thank you for sharing this information! I have some questions concerning my dad's dental implants. If they do get a disease is there a special procedure that we have to do or can we just do a regular dental visit?

    My daughter have been suffered from gingivitis for more than 13 years which started when she was 5 years old we thought it will end but got even worse every day, We tried all several treatments that was prescribed by various doctors but all to no avail,i lost all my hope because no treatment was working on her system one faithful day i read about a herbal doctor called Dr Oboite Natural Herbal Medicine on Facebook. It was showed that dr Oboite is a herbal professional and he has herbs that cures HERPES, HEPATITIS, HIV/AIDS, CANCER, ALS,HVP,KIDNEY FAILURE,DIABETES LOW SPERM COUNT, so i contacted him for my daughter gingivitis and he sent me his herbal cure just after one week of taking the herbal treatment doctor sent to me was able to restore her teeth back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effect, it is such a miracle and blessing to know a man like Dr Oboite you can as well contact him on Email: or call/Whatsapp +2348054265852

Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Onokun helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( ) or you can whatsApp his mobile number on +2349064844957
