As one of the top periodontists in Midtown, NYC, Dr. Daria Royzman is only too well aware of the connection between periodontal disease and general health conditions, but she was concerned to read the latest study on coronary heart diseases.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2016 -- This latest research shows that coronary heart patients who have no natural teeth are at nearly twice the risk of death compared to those patients who still have all their own teeth. The study encompassed more than 15,000 patients from 39 countries and found that the tooth loss is connected with increasing death rates. One can access the complete study at http://cpr.sagepub.com/content/early/2015/12/14/2047487315621978.
Over the past two decades, the link between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease has received increasing amounts of attention, but up until now there has been little research into patients with coronary heart disease and who are at greater risk of death, and who require additional preventative measures.
The study, which was published in the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology, was the first to assess the relationship between coronary heart disease and tooth loss and found the increase in risk was gradual, being highest for those with no natural teeth remaining.
This type of risk deserves to be taken seriously as a periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss. As the study was observational, it isn't possible to determine if gum disease or gingivitis directly causes adverse events in patients with heart diseases, but the loss of natural teeth could be one way to work out who is at greater risk. The largest risk factor for developing periodontal disease is poor oral hygiene and periodontists are keen to try to educate patients not only about the importance of good gum care, but also wish to draw attention to these important links between gum disease and general health. Dr. Royzmanare the best gingivitis treatment to patients and also educates them to take the best care of their gum and teeth.

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that has been linked to numerous health conditions. This is thought to be due to its inflammatory nature, as the bacteria responsible for causing this disease can easily enter the bloodstream through bleeding gums.
