THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MOUTH BACTERIA AND INFLAMMATION IN HEART DISEASE
Oral infections are the most common diseases of mankind and are also a key risk factor for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death worldwide. New clinical evidence supports a link between oral infections, which are caused by the bacteria in our mouths, and heart disease, and they emphasize the important role of inflammation in both of these conditions.
The most common oral infections are cavities and periodontal diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Significant evidence supports an association between oral infections, particularly periodontitis, and stroke, especially among men and younger individuals.
Inflammation plays a major role both in oral infections such as periodontitis and in cardiovascular disease. Effective oral hygiene at home as well as seeing your dentist regularly for professional care is essential to maintain oral health which can facilitate cardiac health.
