Abstract
Research has shown that periodontal disease is associated with several other diseases. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body; however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may be responsible for the association. Therefore, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions. At the same time Tobacco use is linked with many serious illnesses such as cancer, lung disease and heart disease, as well as numerous other health problems. Tobacco users also are at increased risk for periodontal disease. Studies have shown that tobacco use may be one of the most significant risk factors in the development and progression of periodontal disease. Study shows some drugs, such as oral contraceptives, anti-depressants, and certain heart medicines, can affect your oral health. Just as you notify your pharmacist and other health care providers of all medicines you are taking and any changes in your overall health, you should also inform your dental care provider. Studies indicate that older people have the highest rates of periodontal disease and need to do more to maintain good oral health. While women tend to take better care of their oral health than men do, women?s oral health is not markedly better than men?s. This is because hormonal fluctuations throughout a women?s life can affect many tissues, including gum tissue. Studies indicate that older people have the highest rates of periodontal disease and need to do more to maintain good oral health. The risk of complications associated with tobacco use and diabetes in combination are nearly 14 times higher than the risk of either smoking or diabetes alone. High C-reactive protein value & Hba1C levels with periodontal diseases is a predictor of coronary heart disease according to research studies. Research has shown that periodontal disease is associated with several other diseases. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body; however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may be responsible for the association. Therefore, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions. The oral cavity is a major site of chronic infection and inflammation, particularly periodontal disease. In recent years there has been increasing interest in the ?periodontal- systemic connection? between dental health parameters and the risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and other diseases. Given that poor oral health, coronary heart diseases and stroke are major worldwide health problems, their associations are potentially important. In particular, two practical questions are mutual interest to dental and medical healthcare practitioners and their patients. First, should dental health scores be used to predict an individual?s risk of CHD and stroke? Second, does treatment of poor dental health reduce such risk? Dental disease is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease and had relation with diabetes patients. Dental health may be a more general indicator of personal hygiene and possibly health care practices.
